Advantech Releases TREK-306 Rugged 10.4-Inch In-Vehicle Display

Advantech, a leading mobile computing platform provider, is pleased to announce the release of TREK-306, a rugged, 10.4” in-vehicle display.

The industrial-grade, XGA LCD touchscreen panel is the largest in the TREK portfolio. TREK-306 is shock and vibration resistant, is water and dust proof, and is designed to work in the extreme temperatures faced by vehicles in the field. TREK-306 is suited to big vehicles, supporting applications like split screen camera monitoring. The display intelligently connects to other TREK Box PCs on the vehicle via a single cable, and it has large, user-programmable keys on the front allowing it to be customized for specific uses. An SDK is supplied, and the display supports both Windows® and Linux allowing TREK-306 to fit into many pre-existing infrastructures.

A Big Display Designed for Big Vehicle Applications

TREK-306 is especially suited to big vehicle applications. It can serve as a split screen multi-camera monitor in buses, or serve operators in mining and agricultural applications. Large, user-programmable keys allow TREK’s functionality to be tailored to individual applications and its rugged touchscreen offers users an intuitive interface. TREK-306 also features a light sensor to auto-dim the screen as vehicles move in and out of sunlit environments, plus a pair of 2W speakers for program alerts, and a tough display surface, which is EN62262-IK06-compliant and tested with a 500g steel ball drop at 20 cm. To further protect the unit from common hazards in the cab, TREK-306 is IP55-rated against dust and water, easily withstanding spills and dirt. And as temperature conditions in vehicle cabs fluctuate, TREK-306 doesn’t miss a beat, with a wide-range of operating temperatures from -30 ~ +70 °C.

Single Cable, Intelligent Pairing with all TREK Vehicle Box PCs

TREK-306 can be paired with all existing and future TREK x86-based box computers, such as the TREK-550, TREK-668, TREK-570, and TREK-674. The connection allows for pass-through control via a device attached to the USB port on the display. For example, a USB-stick can be attached to the display and used to “flash” a system image on a data-cable attached box computer. To make the hardware easier to access for programmers, Advantech has developed an MRM SDK for customers (which includes a demo utility, sample code, and documentation). The MRM SDK allows programmatic access to altimeter, brightness control, and hotkey functions.

Rugged and Reliable Design for Unmatched Performance in Harsh Environments

TREK-306 is rugged; from its hardened display and chassis design with I/O cover, to its ability to work in harsh environments prone to extreme temperatures, it withstands water and dust (IP55-compliant), as well as shock and vibration (MIL-STD 810G, 5M3-certified). In addition, the design process of TREK-306 adheres to ISO/TS16949:2009 manufacturing standards, ensuring high-quality and a commitment to continual improvement, defect prevention, and reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain.
