Customised, wall mounted, Android tablet manufacturer
« on: September 25, 2019, 12:20:02 am »
Hi all,

does anyone have recommendations or experience sourcing customised OEM Android tablets?

I'm trying to find suppliers (preferably in Australia) for a customised, (flush) wall mounted 7-10" tablet that will become the hub for a home automation product. 

The tablet is essentially an upgrade to an existing custom LCD control panel that gets power (9-15v) and serial comms (RS485) from the rest of the system. Power supply is getting an upgrade so that can be changed to 48v PoE or something more generic.

There's quite a few customisable android tablets on Alibaba etc. but they look pretty chunky and we really want to establish a relationship and reliable supply chain for around 2k units a year.

I assume there will be some OS/software involvement as well to provide custom branding and ensure the core applications are started on power up, as well as disabling unwanted features.

We're pretty lost, so any pointers, suggestions or thoughts are welcome!

I presume you've searched using the term 'HMI' (Human Machine Interface)? Flush mount generally isn't referred to as a tablet.

Ah, thank you!

I hadn't tried 'HMI', and it does indeed throw up some different results that are better aligned with what we're after.
