Hazardous Areas Classified Locations HMI Panel PC

AIS HMI Panel PCs and Thin Client systems for Hazardous Areas are constructed completely with sealed stainless steel type 4/4X, IP 65/66, NEMA 4/4X enclosure with environmental ratings (UL 50 or IEC 529) on the entire system including fully sealed I/O ports. The Hazardous Area Panel PC supports wide operating temperatures from -20 to 60°C (-4 to 140°F), and comes with pre-installed Windows Embedded or Linux operating system; and is powered by high-performance and low power consumption (TDP 3.5W) Intel® embedded processors in fanless, industrial-grade, high bright LCD flat touch screen panels (with option for sunlight readable LCD displays) for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. AIS Intrinsically Safe and Explosion Proof Panel PCs can be used directly in Class I Division 2, Zone 2 without the need for special measures such as complex and expensive enclosures or additional certification processes. In addition, AIS rugged HMI panel PCs comply with IEC 61850 standard for optimized substation automation applications in the energy and utility industries. The AIS HMI embedded technology designed to meet challenging substation IEC 61850-3, IEEE-1613, IEC/TS 61000-5-6, IEC 60068-2-64, and IEC 60068-2-2 compliance standards for shock and vibration resistance, EMI, and wide temperature.

UL and Ex MarkedAIS Intrinsically Safe and Explosion Proof Panel PCs with HMI open platforms are designed and certified to meet NEC/CEC Class/Division, and ATEX Zone standards for increased safety in industrial Touch Screen PCs in Class I Division 2 and Zone 2 Operator Control and Monitoring Applications.
