From shock and vibration resistance to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) cleanability standards, Pepperl+Fuchs offers HMI solutions to meet varying process industry requirements. The VisuNet HMI family includes a wide selection of rugged industrial monitors, industrial box thin clients and box PCs, thin client software, and peripheral devices.
VisuNet operator workstations and monitoring systems are relied on around the world in oil and gas exploration, refineries, chemical and pharmaceutical production facilities. HMIs for industrial applications like these are subjected to moisture, extreme temperature shifts, and the use and abuse of 24/7 operation. To ensure absolute reliability, VisuNet systems are built with industrial-grade components and optimized for extended use in harsh conditions.
Demanding environments require innovative solutions!
Every VisuNet HMI solution is built upon our commitment to innovation and process safety. From a network remote monitor, to a fully enclosed custom operator workstation, each unit has been designed to meet the rigorous demands of real-time process control:
Globally certified units for Zone 1 and 2 and Division 1 and 2
Longevity and high performance
At the core of VisuNet technology are four distinct communication and data transfer options. No matter what the form factor of your display is … an RM panel mount solution will operate identically to the RM EX1.
The VisuNet industrial monitor portfolio offers a set of core communication technologies in a variety of housing styles—from harsh-duty PC workstations optimized for oil and gas exploration to sleek remote monitor systems for regulated indoor environments like pharmaceutical production.
Thin clients are a cornerstone of Industry 4.0 / Internet of Things (IoT) and DCS virtualization strategies. Pepperl+Fuchs offers industrial box thin clients that are tailored to industrial environments. They provide the latest technology inside compact, ruggedized aluminum housings that can withstand the stress of 24/7 operation in challenging ambient conditions. Our thin clients are complimented by a range of industrial box PCs, which are ideally suited for applications that require more computing power.
The industrial tablet thin client extends the Pepperl+Fuchs thin client portfolio with a mobile thin client device. It is based on the ruggedized “Pad-Ex®” tablet from Pepperl+Fuchs' brand ecom, features RM Shell 5 as firmware and opens up many advantages in the field.
VisuNet RM Shell is an innovative thin client firmware pre-installed on every Pepperl+Fuchs VisuNet Remote Monitor and Box Thin Client. It is engineered by Pepperl+Fuchs to simplify the thin client setup and operation of virtualized and conventional workstation-based process control systems. VisuNet Control Center takes the usability of VisuNet RMs to the next level by enabling efficient, centralized remote configuration of multiple RMs.
Off-the-shelf products do not always meet the exact requirements of every application. VisuNet engineered HMI solutions are a simple way to get the exact HMI that you need. Whether the requirement is for a remote monitor or an intrinsically safe panel PC, Pepperl+Fuchs can engineer a solution that fits your application and budget.
A comprehensive range of peripherals complements VisuNet industrial monitors and box thin clients. These devices allow you to optimize VisuNet operator workstations and operator panels for a particular application and further extend your process.
Every VisuNet operator workstation is built on decades of explosion protection expertise. Operator workstations and components are designed and certified for global use in ATEX/IECEx Zone 1/21, Zone 2/22, and NEC Division 1 / Division 2 hazardous locations. Products are also available for use in non-Ex industrial environments.
VisuNet operator interfaces are certified for global use, so it is only fitting that Pepperl+Fuchs offers global support. No matter where in the world you may be, Pepperl+Fuchs offers service and support through a comprehensive network of offices and affiliates.
Pepperl+Fuchs offers complete, single-source HMI solutions—not just individual panel PCs and monitors. A range of housings, mounting options, and peripherals are available, including pedestals, wall-mount options, keyboards, barcode readers, and complete harmonized software that can monitor and manage all Pepperl+Fuchs thin client devices.
No two applications are alike. For requirements that go beyond the standard portfolio, Pepperl+Fuchs offers custom engineered solutions. Whether it is a special mounting solution, an additional RFID reader, or a fully certified dual-monitor system, Pepperl+Fuchs global Solution Engineering Center (SECs) can offer a solution.
The new LB/FB PROFINET gateways from Pepperl+Fuchs open the door for IIoT 4.0 applications in process industries.
