Harsh Environments Call for Specialized Technology: Choosing Devices for Oil and Gas

Oil rigs and remote pipeline locations are some of the most dangerous and challenging work environments anywhere. When looking for electronics to support these environments, devices must stand up to three key requirements: provide advanced system monitoring even in the most challenging conditions, accurately identify and track assets and communicate data from remote sites, and withstand the highest scrutiny of certification and inspection.

Because the conditions are risky for both personnel and equipment, reliable and accurate monitoring is crucial to maintaining safe operations. Computers at these working locations must also maintain detailed data on, for example, petroleum exploration and transportation. To meet the safety qualification, Winmate offers ATEX and Class 1 Division 2 (C1D2) certified solutions for maintaining safe operations and collecting detailed, sensitive data in remote rig and pipeline locations.

The R19IHAT-66EX 19-inch panel PC offers dual certification, ensuring safe and reliable data collection and processing in hazardous locations. Processor options include a Core i5-4300U with 1.9GHz and turbo frequencies up to 2.9GHz, and the Core i7-4650U with 1.7GHz and a turbo speed up to 3.3GHz. This IP66 version has special IEC Ex & ATEX certified Explosive Atmospheres Cable glands. This model also includes a built-in intelligent heater that boosts the standard 14° to 140°F (-10° to 60°C) operating temperature range to -40° to 158°F (-40° to 70°C) for extreme conditions. These advanced certifications ensure the devices won’t produce heat or spark sufficient to ignite explosive atmospheres where gases may have accidentally entered the atmosphere.
