Details: TCU1100-* (Intel® Atom Elkhart Lake Processor)


The TCU1100-* Thin Client Unit is an ATEX/IECEx certified, UL listed device intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, such as Zones 1/21 and Class I/II, Div. 2, and Class III.

Connected to a Pepperl+Fuchs display unit device, it serves as a thin-client based computing unit that runs Pepperl+Fuchs VisuNet RM Shell firmware. The TCU1100 enables users to easily connect to a host system via Ethernet.

Multiple Ex i interfaces support the connection of intrinsically safe accessories that match with the provided entity parameters like Pepperl+Fuchs’ EXTA2 keyboard and mouse system.

The USB Ex e interface can be used to connect other third-party devices that comply with the installation requirements. For extended distances, the TCU1100-* is available with an optional multi-mode or single-mode fiber optic interface.

The TCU1100-* Thin Client Unit is used in combination with the modular Pepperl+Fuchs HMI components Display unit (DPU1100-*) and Power Supply unit (PSU1100-*) of the VisuNet GXP product line.
