Windows CE Industrial Touchscreen Panel PC


The CUWIN is a Windows CE panel PC primarily targeted for grapical touch user interfaces..

The CUWIN's front panel features an 800×480 color touch screen capable of receiving input from a human operator, by touching the screen, and displaying colorful information.

The CUWIN's rear and side panels feature several interfaces (RS232/485, USB, Ethernet, Audio, SD Card) for communicating with many different electronic devices.

The CUWIN translates input from a human operator to signals that electronic devices can understand, and receives signals from those electronic devices, translating them to colorful output that the operator can understand. Thus, the CUWIN serves as a Human Machine Interface(HMI).

By interfacing the CUWIN with the CUBLOC, MOACON, or other Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), the CUWIN can provide a human interface to electronic and mechanical systems such as robots, monitoring systems, environment control systems, and automation equipment just to name a few. The CUWIN has been used in all kinds of applications from solar energy systems that track the sun to beauty appliances for styling hair.

Developing Software for the CUWIN

Setting up a Development Environment

In order to develop software for the CUWIN a software development environment must be installed. Any software development environment capable of producing Windows Embedded CE programs compatible with the CUWIN's processor can be used but Visual Studio is the most common.

Microsoft did not release the Smart Device Programmability tools for any Visual Studio release beyond Visual Studio 2008, so Visual Studio 2008 is the latest version of Visual Studio that can be used to program Windows CE 6.0 devices like the CUWIN.
