Intrinsically safe mobile computing platform.
Diagnostic Instruments Ltd have announced the launch
of the world's first intrinsically safe mobile computing
platform of its kind.
Based on the popular Windows CE operating system, and
certified for Group II, EEx ia IIC T4, the DI-225-IS is the latest
addition to DI's existing 'mobile computing platform' product range.
Combined with leading edge tailored services, ranging from
design through to manufacture, the DI-225-IS will further enhance
Diagnostic Instruments' unique range of mobile computing solutions.
With a vast range of possible applications, the DI-225-IS is set to
revolutionise the petrochemical, process, oil and gas workplace.
Indeed, any environment where safety is an issue.
Housed in an ergonomic enclosure moulded from petrochemical
and solvent tolerant material, the DI-225-IS is a highly specified
computer carefully designed to maximise battery life. Weighing
less than 700grams, and with a hand-strap and belt clip, the unit
is robust yet compact.
The 1/4 VGA touchscreen allows for quick and easy data entry
via the display or using the keypad. Fast action and function keys
can be user-defined to enhance and expedite data entry. Linking
back to the traditional desktop-computing world couldn't be easier.
The unit provides an RS232 connector and cable, as well as IrDA
connectivity for remote data transfer.
All of this power and functionality is housed in an enclosure that is
drop-tested to 2 metres and sealed to IP65, making it dust and
waterproof. This combination offers engineers a robust device that
can not only match the rigours of the environment, but can be used
in areas outside the scope of alternative instruments.
