"butterbox"

Hardware development by checkpointmedia

A small device was developed to enable the permanent installation of ordinary PCs as multimedia controllers, used in museum installations, exhibitions, etc. Installations in these settings are either time-controlled or regularly switched on and off manually and thus it is important to ensure that computers start up and close down reliably. The checkpointmedia “butterbox” allows monitoring of the external power connection and reliably controls the switched-on computer.
