OEM (original equipment manufacturer) hardware for building your machine control & guidance systems

Las Vegas, NV, USA – March 7, 2017 – Today, at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017, Hemisphere GNSS, Inc. (booth G71925) introduces the IronOne Rugged Display & Computer. Purpose-built for harsh machine control environments, IronOne meets IP67-standard certification and uses an 8” sunlight-readable LCD display. IronOne adds another system component and empowers heavy equipment manufacturers to deliver their own machine control and guidance solutions to their customers.

“IronOne is a rugged display that can easily be adapted to any customer’s requirements,” said Matt Steele, product manager at Hemisphere. “With an IP67 rating, high-end processor, and top-of-the-line embedded Windows 10 operating system, IronOne will withstand and exceed expectations in some of the most challenging environments in the machine control landscape.”

Connectivity features on the IronOne include Ethernet, CANbus, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth and offers optional cellular modem for maximum connectivity in the field. The easy-to-read 8” TFT-LCD capacitive touchscreen display is ideal while inside heavy machinery where different viewing angles are required.

IronOne is agnostic and can support site-specific management tools or grading-specific software that requires high-processing speeds and fast update rates. The computer contains an Intel Atom dual-core processor making it ideal for heavy processing requirements. With expandable memory and industry standard connectivity, the IronOne provides one of the most customizable solutions available.
