The IF444 sensor from Distec is a device that can detect a frozen screen. It can be integrated with a PC, SBC system or used in conjunction with a TFT controller such as Distec’s Prisma cards. In the event of a fault, a warning is given via a digital and visual signal with an audible option.
The motion sensor checks a few pixels of the active screen area for a blinking pattern. If the image signal is missing or the background lighting is defective, a warning signal is passed on to your PC or SBC system by Distecs Prisma and Artista TFT controller or the connectivity board IF445.
The Frozen Screen Sensor IF444 can be used both under Windows and Linux. It is mounted by adhering to a corner of the active display surface. In existing systems, you can attach the sensor mechanically yourself or you can include the IF444 sensor option on your next TFT module purchase.
The new sensor is a cost-effective solution to ensure continuous operation.
The IF444 sensor is manufactured by Distec and will be available this autumn.
