Usage

All DIVUS devices are built in order to permit continuous long term operation in industrial environments or in households. The main goal is to deliver a system that does not change its functionality during time using industrial components and embedded long-term support software. Hence it is important not to allow automatic updates, but to supervise them in case of necessity. The devices are intended to be operated within a secure, protected network. Enduring, stable operation is not possible with uncontrolled automatic updates; therefore, the security of the devices needs to be granted on network side.

Quality targets

Despites of our continuous effort to deliver our high quality goods in perfect condition, material-specific attributes as well as limits in production processes and in quality specifications of our supplier may lead to small imperfections to the eye of the customer.
Some of the imperfections are part of our design and deliberately introduced like the brushing of the aluminum front covers. The brushes are intended to be irregular in order to meet the desired optical aspect. Others are limitations of the industrial touch lamination process and the display production by itself. These limits are granted to not exceed the Incoming Inspection Standards of DIVUS, called IIS.
