PenMount Remote PCI Firmware Update

08/24/2017 | Bulletin No. : PMY17008

As the leading brand of projected capacitive (PCI or PCAP) touch controllers, PenMount is dedicated to supplying the most feature-rich, reliable, and convenient products available on the market.  Our commitment to service translates into simplified installation, configuration, operation, and upgrade to allow customers to bring their projects to market faster and with fewer complications.  In order to further facilitate access to new advanced features and to ensure optimal functionality, the PenMount team has built remote firmware update into our controllers.  Customers can take advantage of this item to remotely update the firmware for all their products simultaneously and automatically, foregoing the need to perform this action manually for each of their systems.

Remote firmware update is available for Windows and Linux operating systems. Taking Windows OS as an example, a MSI (Microsoft Windows installer) file package can be pushed to client side for automatic firmware update at the next boot up.  This MSI update package includes firmware update utility, software library, and the firmware file. Remote firmware update can be initiated from anywhere in the world.  This means engineers can update firmware, adjust parameters, and enable features from remote side with neither geographical nor time constraints.  No engineers are required onsite to physically interact with customer systems for after-sales service.

One real-world project involving gas pump touch screens illustrates the ease and flexibility of remote firmware update.  With thousands of individual pumps in the field spanning numerous countries, it was inevitable these systems would be placed in disparate environments.  After installation, parameters such as water handling and sensitivity were fine tuned remotely according to customer feedback by region.  This optimized operation for each discrete environment without the need for onsite support.

PenMount’s design philosophy involves added consideration on behalf of customers and understanding real customer needs.  Through providing comprehensive touch solutions, we help customers introduce PCI touch products.  The smooth progress of your projects is our ultimate goal.  PenMount has also prepared complete utilities to satisfy your common user setting requirements and facilitate the design and development of your products.
