Acromag’s rugged I/O server industrial PCs available in Australia from Metromatics are now UL/cUL listed with approval for use in Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C and D hazardous conditions.
Already ruggedised for dependable computing in sites subject to extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, the fanless industrial PCs now have Underwriters Laboratory (UL) certification for Class I Division 2 Group A, B, C and D hazardous locations containing volatile substances.
The UL approval permits use of the I/O server fanless embedded computers and their plug-in I/O modules in environments containing flammable liquids, gases or vapours.
UL's Class I Division 2 certification is often required for electronics deployed in chemical, oil, gas, mining and various manufacturing facilities.
With the higher safety rating, the I/O servers can be installed closer to sensors and actuators to reduce installation costs for monitoring and control of automated machinery. The fanless industrial PCs have no internal cables while conduction cooling removes heat without open vents or fans for more reliable operation from -40ºC to +75ºC.
Acromag offers a complete line of embedded I/O products including bus boards, mezzanine modules, wiring accessories and software to serve industries such as military, aerospace, manufacturing, transportation, utilities, and scientific research laboratories.
