Panel PC for hazardous areas

14 July 2015

Moxa has introduced a new line of panel PCs - the EXPC-1519 which includes features and certifications required for Class 1, Div. 2; ATEX Zone 2, and IECEx rated hazardous environments. 

The industrial PCs are said to incorporate many industry firsts – such as the widest operating temperature range at -40° to +70°C for a fanless cooling system absent of any moving parts, and the integration of dual core Intel i7 processors with up to 16 GB of memory. Performance is also enhanced by a more flexible I/O arrangement to simplify field installations in open air hazardous area environments. It also features a ‘glove-friendly’ touch screen interface on the glare-free, 1000 nits 19in LED screen. 
"For oil and gas operations, it can be extremely difficult and costly to realise the benefits of modern computing and communications technology, with overheating, dead pixels, and poor system performance being common complaints," said Thomas Nuth, Moxa's global vertical manager for Oil and Gas. "The EXPC-1519 delivers the very latest PC-based technology to hazardous area applications with no compromise in power, reliability, space or feature set."
The EXPC-1519 is housed in a sealed IP66, NEMA 4X enclosure designed for efficient heat dissipation, as well as to extend service life by preventing ingress of damaging dust, water, chemicals or adverse weather.
