ATEX Zone 2, 19-inch panel computer
Oil and gas operations are performed in harsh environmental conditions such as blistering hot or freezing cold temperatures. High exposure to dust and water as well as the explosive atmosphere make operations challenging. Moxa's rugged 19-inch panel computer, the EXPC-1519, is UL certified for Zone 2 applications in hazardous environments, can operate reliably in the -40 to 70°C temperature range, and can boot up within 3 minutes at -40°C without a heater. The EXPC-1519 is an ideal choice for the harsh environments of a drilling rig or an oil refinery.
The EXPC-1519 features a 19-inch 1000-nit sunlight-readable multi-touch screen that can be operated even with rigger’s gloves. Equipped with the Intel® Core™ i7-3555LE or Celeron processor with up to 2.5 GHz speed, the EXPC-1519 guarantees the high performance that is required in advanced SCADA applications such as rig-floor monitoring, drilling control, and onsite IP surveillance.
The EXPC-1519 is designed to operate in a temperature range of -40 to 70°C. It comes in a fanless enclosure designed for highly efficient heat dissipation, making it a good fit for use in hot environments such as an oil rig. In extremely cold environments down to -40°C, the panel computer can boot up in 3 minutes without a heater. The EXPC-1519 is also certified against Class 1 Division 2, ATEX Zone 2, IECEx, and NEMA 4X/ IP66 industrial standards to provide maximum protection in harsh operating environments.
The EXPC-1519 panel computers provide flexible interface options to meet all your application needs.
Equipment failure in remote applications such as oil rigs and refineries might result in high costs and production delays. The EXPC-1519 panel computer with its fanless design without a heater, cable gland connectors, and NEMA 4x/ IP66 waterproof enclosure, is built to withstand harsh outdoor environments such as that of an oil platform. The two-piece modular design of the EXPC-1519 panel means that broken parts can be replaced easily and with minimum downtime. These features of the EXPC-1519 ensure minimum maintenance cost and time, thereby maximizing the system uptime.
