Industrial Computing for Energy of Tomorrow

Fanless embedded computers with up to 6 LAN ports & Extended temperature


Natural gas, the cleanest burning fossil fuel, has formed an increasingly important role in meeting the growing global demand for energy while helping to mitigate climate change. Natural gas is plentiful, but some of its resources are in remote locations. Transporting gas long distances by pipeline can be costly and impractical the solution. The liquefied gas process will shrink its volume to about 600 times, providing easier, more economical, and safe transportation by ship. When the boat arrives at its destination, the Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) is transferred to a regasification plant where it is heated and returned to its gaseous state to be transported by pipelines to customers providing cleaner-burning natural gas and energy for homes and Industry.

Officers and engineers aboard an LNG ship aboard are currently extremely hectic individuals. They need to get their hands on real-time, easy-to-use information from the vessel's systems along with exact private metrics. Optimizing fuel performance should not take over other tactical in-the-moment decisions, to keep sailing as safely as feasible with their critical cargo.

Winmate embedded computers are industrial PCs built on single-board computers and made for vast release in application-specific environments. Our fanless embedded systems stress stability and durability and provide an incredibly dependable remedy for your most remote locations. These systems offer an excellent balance of performance, with up to 6 LAN ports and an Extended temperature level. Get the up-to-date information you need to track the location, improve planning, and ensure compliance while ensuring that your goods are transported in optimal conditions to minimize waste.

Making sense of large sets of complex data has become paramount to ship owners and operators with an eye on effective decision-making. For its part, the platform through over three billion measurements every day from hundreds of vessels. Its database also has access to over 140,000 sea days of real-time data.

Connect the maritime IoT with Winmate fanless embedded computers

Winmate understands how fragmented the LNG sector for the marine transportation industry is, from the number of parties involved and the number of solutions deployed, including emerging fanless embedded computer products. At Winmate, we designed and developed open, interoperable, and modular IoT solutions customized for the renewable energy and shipping environment.

The proposed products are certified safe by international regulations:
