iPC-EX is a PC operator terminal for the most challenging control and visualization tasks in hazardous areas (Zones 1, 2 and 22). It is an industry-standard local visualization solution for process control systems in chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries.
In the iPC-EX solution, only the operator control and monitoring elements such as monitor, keyboard and mouse are actually located in the hazardous area, while the PC is installed up to 1000 m away in the safe area. The PC hardware can be replaced - or the software updated - quickly, easily and without any restrictions in the safe area. Since the iPC-EX system accesses the standard PS/2 ports on the PC for the keyboard and mouse as well as the VGA output, any IBM-compatible PC can be used.
Pepperl+Fuchs offers a wide range of stainless steel case variants that comply with the IP 65 degree of protection, a choice of two different display sizes, an optional touchscreen, and maximum installation flexibility.
Modularity means maximum flexibility based on proven standard components.
