Winmate USB Type-C Solution Review
Super-compact, IP67-sealed industrial IoT gateway with USB Type-C video, data, and power Alt Modes
(by Conrad H. Blickenstorfer)
In this article we're examining Winmate Inc's new (as of early 2019) EAC Mini EACIL67 industrial IoT gateway computer. What's an industrial IoT gateway? It is a small, reliable PC used to share, filter and transport data from sensors up to higher level intelligent systems and from there to the cloud. The Winmate EACIL67 can do all that and more. And there are also several things that set it apart from your average IoT gateway.
This means that the Winmate EAC Mini EACIL67 isn't only completely immune to the elements, but it can also run (and power) a compatible USB Type-C display, such as Winmate's W10L100-GCH2-C, through one single cable.
- IP67 — It carries a full IP67 ingress protection rating. That means it's dustproof and waterproof as well, even with full immersion.
- USB-C —The EACIL67 has a USB-C port that supports audio/video, USB data and power all in one cable.
What began as a much appreciated solution to a decades-old annoyance — a better USB connector — has grown into a versatile connectivity solution that reduces the number of cables.
Fewer cables is always better, and with its innovative USB Type-C solutions, Winmate is putting this new interface technology to work.
In this example, on the one side there's an almost impossibly small, tough and rugged and fully sealed industrial computer — the Winmate EAC Mini EACIL67 IoT gateway — that can be mounted anywhere. On the other a robust display that gets its video, audio, USB and power all through a single thin cable — Winmate's W10L100-GCH2-C USB Type-C Display. Makes perfect sense. — Conrad Blickenstorfer, February 2019
