An industrial tablet PC for use in hazardous areas

| By Chemical Engineering



The Agile X industrial tablet PC (photo) is said to be the world’s thinnest, purpose-built UL Division 2 and ATEX Zone 2 device for enterprise use in rugged environments. Wireless LAN and optional LTE modules on the Agile X provide realtime data transfer and uninterrupted connectivity, enabling field workers, including technicians, engineers and managers, to bring their office to the Ex area. In addition to the integrated barcode scanner, the tablet PC also features a rear-side expansion slot, allowing the tablet to be extended with further data capture options, such as a radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader. — Bartec GmbH, Bad Mergentheim, Germany
