Panel computerMoxa introduces the EXPC-1319 hazardous location panel computer. “The harsh conditions found in oil and gas fields are possibly the worst imaginable for a computer,” explained Daniel Liu, business development manager for embedded computers. “Our EXPC-1319 is fully enclosed to withstand the heat, moisture, vibration, and dangerous gases that are inherent to oil and gas operations.” Made for extreme environments, the EXPC-1319 meets UL Class 1, Div 2, and IEC ATEX Zone 2 hazardous location codes without the need for special measures such as complex and expensive enclosures or additional certification processes. It is qualified for direct installation in hazardous areas worldwide where potentially explosive gases or vapors may be present, such as in petrochemical and chemical processing plants, mining, paint factories, or fueling stations. Because these areas are often subject to high humidity, the panels are sealed off to NEMA4X and IP66 ingress standards to protect their sensitive electronics from water ingress, even when they are deployed outdoors. In addition, the panels meet T5 temperature requirements. Serial interfaces, gigabit LAN ports, USBs, and VGA ports tested for full compliance with flame-proofing requirements round out its feature set, along with an expanded set of self-health diagnostics over SNMP for remote monitoring.
