Remote Monitor VisuNet IXD for Outdoor Applications in Zone 1/21

Reliable Performance in Harsh Environments

The VisuNet IXD remote monitor, latest lightweight technology from Pepperl+Fuchs, is extremely robust and comes in a modular design. Whether the application requires a thin client or PC-based HMI, the VisuNet IXD is certified for Zone 1/21 and is optimized for outdoor applications that require an extremely rugged panel PC or thin client with a wide range of interfaces. The VisuNet RM Shell firmware and the user friendly software tool VisuNet Control Center offer optimized field maintainability. 

Designed for Any Environment, Optimized for Outdoor Use

Luminosité élevée

Destiné à être utilisé dans les applications en extérieur, l'appareil VisuNet IXD dispose d'un affichage haute luminosité et d'un écran tactile fixé optiquement qui réduit les reflets, augmente la transmission de lumière et permet une meilleure qualité d'image pour une visualisation optimale en cas de luminosité ambiante élevée. Un pare-soleil optionnel protège des rayons directs du soleil.

Robustesse

L'écran multipoint projectif-capacitif est protégé par un verre de sécurité rendant l'appareil VisuNet IXD bien plus robuste que les postes de travail classiques. Tous les composants de l'unité d'affichage sont en aluminium anodisé et revêtus de poudre. Le VisuNet IXD peut fonctionner de -20 °C à +60 °C et est certifié mondialement pour les zones à risque d'explosion (IECEx/ATEX Zone 1/21).

Conception modulaire

La conception modulaire représente un avantage clé de l'appareil VisuNet IXD. Il se compose d'un affichage, d'une alimentation, d'un ordinateur et permet aux opérateurs de remplacer les composants indépendamment en cas de défaillance. Cela facilite la maintenance sur le terrain et réduit les coûts associés aux temps d'arrêt.

Souplesse d'installation

Pesant seulement 23 kg, l'appareil VisuNet IXD facilite le montage de différentes applications sans avoir besoin d'un pied coûteux et robuste. Plusieurs options de montage sont disponibles : les supports muraux et la chape, le pied, le dispositif VESA et le montage sur panneau facilitent l'installation et augmentent la flexibilité d'installation.

Safety and Reliability in All Conditions

Application Scenario Refineries
Fuel has become indispensable in our society. It is produced in refineries via elaborate chemical and physical processes that are supported and monitored by digital technologies. This all takes place in real time in central control rooms and on-site by plant operators using modular HMI PCs or thin clients such as the VisuNet IXD with hazardous-location approvals. The IXD can withstand direct sunlight and temperatures of up to +60 °C. The 19-inch high brightness display has an optically bonded touch screen that minimizes reflections and improves image quality and contrast. The optional sunshield effectively counteracts direct sunlight.
Reliablity in harsh enviroments
The VisuNet IXD is also suitable for harsh environments. Temperature changes ranging from -20 °C to +60 °C have no influence on the functionality and service life of the VisuNet IXD. The powder-coated aluminum housing is optimized for the outdoors, preventing corrosion in rain or snow.
One Device—Many Possibilities
A key advantage of the VisuNet IXD is its modular design. It consists of a display, power supply, as well as a computer and enables operators to replace components independently in the event of a failure. This makes field maintenance easy and reduces costs associated with downtime. Unlike other Zone 1/21 solutions that are bulky and heavy, the VisuNet IXD is the lightest in the industry, weighting approximately 23 kg. This enables easier mounting in different applications. A variety of mounting options designed for different applications are available: Wall brackets, yoke, pedestal, VESA, and panel mounting ease the installation and increase installation flexibility. An optional sunshield protects from direct sun and can also be used as mechanical protection during non-operation.

Simple Configuration with RM Shell 5

Each VisuNet IXD Remote Monitor is equipped with VisuNet RM Shell 5, the latest generation of firmware for our thin client solutions. The VisuNet RM Shell 5 firmware is pre-installed and pre-configured for various control systems. This makes it quick and easy to get Pepperl+Fuchs thin clients up and running. The latest generation of RM Shell is based on Microsoft® Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise LTSB, which includes long-term security updates by Microsoft. In addition, RM Shell 5 comes with integrated security mechanisms that give the system reliable protection from malware and viruses.

VisuNet RM Shell 5 – Next-Generation Firmware

RM Shell 5 firmware is available for every VisuNet device from Pepperl+Fuchs. It enables a complete thin client solution for process industries—from BTCs in the control room down to remote monitors as VisuNet IXDs in Zone 1/21. And with VisuNet Control Center software, plant operators can configure, monitor, and efficiently manage all devices from one central point.
