By Chemical Engineering |

Agile X IS (photo) is a 10.1-in. tablet PC system that is certified to ATEX and IECEx for Zone 1/UL Class 1 Div 1. The robust, dust- and water-repellent device is suitable for various industries ranging from oil-and-gas to chemicals and pharmaceuticals. It allows users to take their office directly into dangerous areas without having to worry about explosion-protection requirements. This results in unprecedented flexibility, since it is becoming more and more important for mobile workers to access data and systems directly in the field. The capacitive special display is not only very readable in strong sunshine and rain, but can also be operated with standard commercial gloves. The tablet PC has an 8 GB memory and a 128 GB SSD memory, a micro SD card slot that stores up to 32 GB, supports USB 2.0 (also directly in Zone 1) and GPS and NFC functionality. — Bartec GmbH, Bad Mergentheim, Germany
