The newest product in the Tab-Ex series of hazardous-area mobile devices (photo) is based on the latest Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 and integrates augmented reality (AR) applications. With the Tab-Ex 02, users can communicate in realtime, as well as collect and retrieve data, parameters and information remotely. Due to its magnetic gyroscope, the tablet enables users to identify objects in an installation via AR applications. The software delivers all underlying, existing data directly on the mobile device’s display in realtime, while also making it shareable within a company’s network. Whether through construction plans, maintenance information or operating states, the reality is enriched and extended by virtual data already stored in the plant. The mobile use of AR can solve multiple challenges and tasks in the industry, from rapid commissioning of a plant, transparent processes and precise maintenance to efficient asset management. — ecom instruments GmbH, Assamstadt, Germany
