Conditions in processing plants can be extremely problematic. Industrial monitors can be subject to moisture and extreme temperature shifts as well as solvents, chemicals, and pressure cleaning. For HMIs, this challenge is easily resolved by placing only the most essential components in the field and using data lines to establish a connection to the equipment in the safe area. This separation minimizes most of the components’ exposure to harsh conditions and decreases the chance for failure.
VisuNet IND panel solutions are an important component of process visualization. Each 24/7 panel mount monitor operates in the harshest environments. Following in the tradition of our rugged industrial monitors, each is manufactured using all industrial-grade components. The panel mount workstations are globally certified for Zone 2 and Class I & II, Division 2 areas. The units have a variety of touchscreen options that include antiglare, transflective, and hardened resistive glass.
The all-in-one solutions mount directly to process machinery or manufacturing equipment. VisuNet IND panel mount solutions range from a simple monitor to remote monitors and panel PC.
Pepperl+Fuchs remote monitor technology offers many advantages:
Standard Ethernet networking connections to the server—no expensive converters
Access multiple servers from one workstation—less IT infrastructure
Supports RDP applications: Microsoft® terminal services, Citrix® ICA, or VNC RFB
Compressed video traffic—only changes in graphics are transmitted
No software to install
Low power consumption allows the unit to conserve energy and dissipate very little heat when idling
