IP66 Enclosure Zone 2 Panel Computer


Taipei, Taiwan, September 17, 2013— Moxa’s EXPC-1319 panel computer is specially designed for use in oil and gas industry applications. The EXPC-1319’s rugged design is certified UL Class 1 Division 2, ATEX Zone 2 (Pending), and IECEx (Pending), but in addition to these formidable guarantees, when it is purchased with Moxa’s patented Intelligent Heating Solution the EXPC-1319 also remains a dependable, fanless computing solution in temperatures ranging from as low as -40 to as high as 60°C. With a sealed IP66 / NEMA 4X enclosure and a flexible array of I/O options, these panel computers are perfect for data-intense industrial solutions that require rugged durability, as required by drilling and pumping platforms, outdoor HMI terminals, or refinery stations.

While Moxa fanless computers have already earned a reputation for dependability and durability, Moxa’s patented Intelligent Heating Solution goes further, to eliminate the problems that come with extreme cold. Extreme cold corrupts the output of computer components in unpredictable ways, and in particular can cause severe display distortions like dead spots, or motion blur. To engineer these panel computers for use in very cold environments, Moxa developed two hardware patents specifically for IHS. Unlike many heating boards that provide only on-off controls at a particular temperature threshold, IHS uses a proportional controller that is carefully calibrated using rigorous thermal profiling. Delivering steady reliability and computational stability even in low sub-zero temperatures—and with an overall MTBF that compares with the best computers the industry has to offer—IHS allows the EXPC-1319 to be deployed as a stand-alone computer in environments that have used to require much more complex and expensive solutions.See How Moxa’s Intelligent Heating Solution Helps Atex Zone 2 Panel Computers Reliably Operate in Extremely Low Temperatures
