Industrial Internet concept
In the context of the extensive concept of the network economy of smart cities such as the Internet, Internet of Things, Internet of Vehicles, home networking, cloud computing, and big data, the concept of industrial Internet has also become popular internationally. Industrial Internet, in essence, is a network that connects people, data, and machines. It has been hailed by some insiders as the third commercial revolution after the industrial revolution and the Internet revolution—the industrial Internet revolution. The GE that explicitly proposes and promotes this concept is GE. In the white paper on Industrial Internet released by GE, the Industrial Internet will have the potential to affect more than 90% of global energy production, 44% of energy consumption, through equipment, the Internet. The combination with big data will promote more advanced equipment and better service generation.
Industrial control tablet is an important interactive interface and port of industrial internet
The definition of the industrial Internet in the terminal is different from the current concept of hardware terminal. Each terminal is defined as a data service terminal, and the hardware is only part of the data of the bearer and production. In the data terminal of the industrial Internet, the industrial control tablet is an important interactive interface and input and output port of the industrial Internet.
Capacitive screen panels are not used in productivity applications
Industrial Internet involves industrial information security, so in the industrial control host or industrial control tablet, all aspects of research and development are very cautious. Now the interface interaction mode for the industrial control host or tablet is basically carried out by a mouse, a keyboard and a resistive touch screen. When inputting production materials, most of them are still traditional mouse and keyboard methods. When performing local data adjustment on the spot, they are performed through a resistive touch screen. However, affected by consumer electronics, many companies have begun to use commercial tablets such as IPAD when developing or debugging industrial equipment.
According to Zhou Jingwei, the first technical officer of Touch IC manufacturer, Rui Rui Microelectronics: However, due to the strict safety certification of products, it requires at least five years of product quality assurance, and the certification time is also long. Basically, it requires more than half a year of experimental certification. In parallel, a year of parallel trial operation can enter the market application. These requirements are temporarily untenable for many consumer electronics companies.
Industrial control capacitive screen market is large, growth is slow
According to the research of the Rising Sun Mobile Industry Research Office, the market value of the industrial control capacitive screen market in 2014 can be converted by about 4 billion yuan. By 2020, it is expected that there will be more than 60 billion industrial capacitive screen market capacity and market capacity. Big. However, it is understood that the industrial control OS or UI interface suitable for capacitive screen operation has few development applications, and it has not yet become a certain industry standard. The mainland is currently in the pre-installation market, and the industrial control capacitive screen market is growing very slowly. Some achievements in this area are basically touch ICs or capacitive screen manufacturers that have cooperated with international manufacturers in the field of industrial control. They have taken advantage of foreign mechanical and electrical equipment import channel opportunities to dominate the industrial control capacitor flat panel market in mainland China. In the post-installation or modification of the industrial control market, the original system is generally used to temporarily debug or process data through a wireless connection through a commercial tablet such as an IPAD.
