Wey

WEY Technology is a leading supplier of high-tech solutions for the transmission, control, distribution, and display of real-time data in command and control centres in airports around the world.

The full range of WEY's services includes planning and consultation, project management, product development, production, installation, and customer support.

Remote solutions and distribution platforms for air traffic control and other airport control rooms

In control room environments, keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) or KVMA switching-over-IP systems have established themselves as ideal technical solutions due to their flexibility, unlimited expandability, and reliability.

The WEY Distribution Platform is a fully integrated solution that enables real-time switching of a broad variety of signals or PC sources to an unlimited number of workplaces.

Customers can use this platform to connect with any of their existing systems, either over a local area network (LAN), a metropolitan area network (MAN), or a wide area network (WAN) . Distance is not an issue.

Remote solutions using KVM extenders make it possible to remove actual workstations from the office area to free-up space and eliminate noise and heat emissions at desks.

Multifunctional keyboards access multiple workstations and screens

WEY Technology develops high-quality multifunctional keyboards, allowing you to access multiple workstations without performance loss, using a single keyboard and mouse. Using this peripheral device system you can directly and intuitively control a virtually unlimited number of monitors and video walls.

The flagship WEY Smart Touch keyboard offers uncompromising functionality and ergonomics. It features an intuitive 10in touchscreen, with video inputs for streaming.

Movement sensors enhance security by putting the keyboard into sleep mode when unattended, and light sensors automatically adjust the brightness of the LCD screen. An exchangeable, snap-in key panel is available for each user, to support workplace hygiene in shared, 24h offices.

The keyboard can be tailored to meet individual requirements, and custom pads and programmable function keys enhance the efficiency of operator workflows.

Visualisation solutions with LCD panels or LED projection

Fully integrated video wall solutions are designed using crystal-clear LCD panels or modern rear-projection LED technology, both characterised by their brilliant picture quality and modularity.

The development of specialised interface components ensures full interoperability of the video wall, and the WEY Distribution Platform. Predefined events and alarms can be displayed on the video wall, and be acknowledged using a WEY Multifunctional keyboard.

High-performance, low-power miniature PCs

Standard PCs are deployed in multiple areas around airports, including in towers, at security centres, check-in counters, and baggage handling, but the decentralised distribution of PCs generates extremely high maintenance and IT support costs.

A new future-orientated solution saves space under the desk, reduces heat and noise emissions, and improves sub-optimal PC security.

The UltraFlex Mini PC is a high-performance, low-power, very small form factor PC, which is new and unique in the market. The UltraFlex Mini PC is smaller than most other thin clients, though its true strengths lie in its performance and flexibility.

With i3 to i7 processers, UltraFlex Mini PCs feature dual-network connections and redundant power supplies, and drive up to seven screens, including UHD (3,840 x 2,160) capabilities. The UltraFlex Mini PC can be deployed in a mixed environment, combining hybrid desktops and conventional PCs.
