APC Technology has announced that it now offers the world’s first IECEx-certified Windows 10 enterprise tablet to the Australian and New Zealand markets. The Zone 1 tablet will be showcased on stand K26 at the Australian Oil and Gas Show (AOG) in Perth between 22 - 24 February.
The intrinsically safe tablet, has been awarded certification for ATEX and IECEx Zone 1 areas across Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific. The device is also certified for UL 913 Class 1 Division 1 explosive areas of hazardous locations in the USA and CSA 22.2 in Canada.
Manufactured by Aegex Technologies, the Aegex10 Intrinsically Safe tablet is the first Windows 10 enterprise device to hold global intrinsic safety certifications for HazLoc operations globally.
The tablet is the first to bring Windows 10 capabilities into industries including oil and gas, which operates in highly explosive environments.
The Aegex10 tablets can synchronise with an organisation’s Internet of Things to allow users to transmit real time data from within the most hazardous zones of their operations. Such cloud based connectivity improves efficiency and lowers risk, resulting in decreased downtime and optimised operations.
“For over 30 years, we have designed and supplied rugged computing solutions to companies in harsh and hazardous environments both domestically and internationally. In the last ten years, there has been substantial growth in the demand for mobile solutions but the lack of industry certified products has hampered the adoption of solutions within the most hazardous areas,” said APC Technology’s Managing Director Scott Begbie.
