At SPS IPC Drives 2018 in Hall 7A, Stand 330, the Pepperl+Fuchs brand ecom presents the next generation of its groundbreaking feature phones and tablets for hazardous areas.
The world premiere includes the in-house developed Ex-Handy 10 Featurephone and the ATEX/IECEx Zone 1/21; Div. 1 version of the industrial tablet Tab-Ex 02.
The next generation of mobile solutions: the in-house developed 4G/LTE featurephone Ex-Handy 10 and the ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 / Div. 1 version of the industrial tablet Tab-Ex 02.
Ex-Handy 10 – Highest Performance, Software and Network Compatibility
The in-house developed Zone 1/21 certified 4G/LTE Featurephone Ex-Handy 10 with Android 8 operating system is the ideal enabler and companion for innovative industrial 4.0 applications in hazardous areas.
The latest member of the ultra-robust Ex-Handy family, developed since 1994, enables the use of push-to-talk (PTT) solutions over 4G as well as private LTE and Wi-Fi networks. This ensures optimum network coverage in all areas and situations – with low network latency and excellent data transfer rates. Speakers positioned at the front of the mobile device provide optimal voice and sound quality – even in noisy environments.
Dedicated, easy-to-use side buttons – large PTT and red emergency button – allow quick access to PTT and alarm services via one-touch. In addition, the automatic, lone worker protection function can be implemented application-specifically and can (server-dependent) be integrated into the company's IT.
The high-resolution, brilliant display of the Ex-Handy 10 is protected by extremely resistant and scratchproof gorilla glass. It features protection class IP68 and withstands permissible ambient temperatures from -20 °C to +60 °C in harshest industrial environments.
The feature phone offers maximum planning and investment security thanks to very long availability and support (5-year lifecycle) as well as global approvals (explosion-protection, country-specific product conformity and a wide variety of radio bands). With the Android 8 operating system, continuous security updates via FOTA (Firmware Over the Air) and its own software development team, the Ex-Handy 10 is future-proof.
In addition, its highly developed and powerful rechargeable battery paired with advanced energy management allows operating times above average. A consistent, compatible product ecosystem with its own 3.5 mm audio jack connector fixation concept and neues ecom Radio Speaker Microphone (RSM) as innovative PTT sets, scan applications and BLE beacons complete the offer.
Industrial Tablet Tab-Ex 02 now available for Zone 1 /21
The next highlight at the trade show in Nuremberg is the ATEX/IECEx Zone 1/21; Div. 1 version of the new industrial tablet Tab-Ex 02 as successor of the world's first explosion-proof Android tablet Tab-Ex 01.
The Tab-Ex 02 combines highest performance with innovative applications such as augmented reality. Equipped with an Android 8 operating system, the Tab-Ex 02, based on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2, features a powerful Octa Core processor with 1.6 gigahertz and 3 gigabyte RAM.
It is ideally suited for industry 4.0-capable applications and simplifies data exchange with SCADA/DCS systems, merchandise management systems (SAP, IBM Maximo), project management systems and computer-aided system planning.
The compact Tab-Ex 02 is the perfect and worldwide approved companion for various tasks, including inventory, material tracking, maintenance, supply chain and asset management up to a professional solution for lone worker protection.
Harness Synergies, increase Effectiveness and Safety
At SPS IPC Drives, Pepperl+Fuchs and ecom demonstrate how customers benefit from an end-to-end, future-proof solution and global service portfolio for hazardous areas which offers completely new possibilities along the entire supply chain in terms of industry 4.0.
The interaction of the latest sensor technology, smart HMI solutions and explosion-proof mobile devices helps companies to reduce costs, increase safety and ensure more effective processes and improved asset management.
In addition, employees, experts, teams or project groups can use professional industrial applications, make data available online in real time and thus collaborate more flexibly from any location.
Push-to-talk or video conferencing applications offer many advantages for documentation, remote diagnosis, maintenance and repair. Experts don´t need to be in the plant or on site to make a remote diagnosis and give instructions for repairing the damage, thus no longer losing valuable time or incurring costs.
At the ecom and Pepperl+Fuchs exhibition stand (Hall 7A, Stand 330), visitors will gain insight into the comprehensive Mobile Worker Ecosystem and its large selection of hardware and application solutions.
With the ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 / Div. 1 certified industrial tablet Tab-Ex 02, the mobile worker can make data permanently available in real time over the entire process chain – at any location and at any time.
Automation is our world. A Perfect application solution is our goal.
A willingness to take entrepreneurial risks, a pioneering spirit, and a firm belief in their own inventive powers – these were the assets that Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs started out with when they opened their Mannheim radio repair shop in 1945.
Their invention of the proximity switch a few years later proved their strength. It was also the starting point in a successful history defined by close customer relationships as well as innovative automation technologies and procedures. Then as now, our focus is directed squarely on the individual requirements of each customer.
Whether as a pioneer in electrical explosion protection, or as a leading innovator of highly efficient sensors – the close communication with our customers is what allowed us to become the leader in automation technology. Our main objective is combining state-of-the-art technologies and comprehensive services to optimise our customers´ processes and applications.
