Features and Functions
Daylight Suitable displays requires a very high brightness and they produce high characteristic temperatures. Sunning multiplies this effect. This results in very harmful temperature ranges, which can even lead to total failure of the implemented display. The knoXbox absorbs the sun’s energy, the temperature conditions will be compensated a balanced operating environment will be reached.
Sudden, extreme cold spells or blackouts in wintertime’s with low temperatures are often the end for expensive displays. Especially in alpine areas. The knoXbox responds to such extreme situations and controls all internal components accordingly. Displays and PC will be switched off in an emergency and they will be rebooted only, when optimal operating conditions are reached again.
Control unit with remote access
The sophisticated control technology with self-preservation circuit is the heart of the knoXbox. All components including the integrated display and PC will be optimally controlled and switched in dependence to the environment temperature and humidity. There are several predefined control programs available that have been developed and optimized based on years of experience, measurement data and the analysis of weather data for the different regions.
Switching conditions and environment values will be recorded by a Event log and the user will be informed about fault states and upcoming maintenance.
