A member of the Pepperl+Fuchs family of industrial manufacturers, ECOM Instruments makes a lot of great products for hazardous work locations, all of which are available in Canada from Process Instruments and Components Inc. (PIC). Among ECOM’s lineup of tools is its explosion proof tablets, available for Android or Windows. In fact, ECOM created the world’s first Zone 1/21 Division 1 tablet computer, the Tab-Ex 01 Series.
Intrinsically safe mobile devices
These explosion proof tablets are intrinsically safe mobile devices that allow mobile workers to perform a wide range of tasks easily, as they shift how they work and interact with each other, their remote experts, and back-end systems.
ECOM manufactures a whole family of compatible tablets for worldwide use in Zones 1, 1/21, and 2 and Divisions 1 and 2, as well as in rugged environments. These devices have caused a paradigm shift in the how mobile workers perform asset surveys, material tracking, operator rounds, inspection, data collection, plant maintenance, and other tasks in such hazardous sectors as oil and gas, refining, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. This family of explosion proof tablets from PIC has enabled better decision making and mobile-worker collaboration, higher efficiency, and improved data quality related to dangerous work applications.
Based in the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active platform, the Tab-Ex 01 series features an eight-inch screen that allows users to view and interact with SCADA/DCS systems, enterprise systems, project-management systems, and computer-aided design systems. Other advantageous features include the optional built-n cameras and a complete range of wireless capability that captures equipment defects during inspection and maintenance, making them instantly visible to workers who need to diagnose these issues and determine the proper solutions. The Tab-Ex 02 series is designed for Zones 1/21 and 2/22.
These tablets are perfectly compatible with a broad variety of pre-loaded applications to create a safer work environment, such as device encryption, MDM, VPN, secure connectivity, and other innovative security functions. Users can work with software applications developed or licenced for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active with no changes to them.
