Courtesy: MoxaMoxa's EXPC-1319 hazardous location panel computer is designed to be used in industrial settings that are potentially hazardous and can withstand extreme temperatures in the oil and gas industries. 

Designed for rugged environments, the EXPC-1319 meets UL Class 1, Div 2 and IEC ATEX Zone 2 hazardous location codes without the need for special measures such as complex and expensive enclosures or additional certification processes. It is qualified for direct installation in hazardous areas worldwide where potentially explosive gases or vapors may be present, such as in petrochemical and chemical processing plants, mining, paint factories or fueling stations. Because these areas are often subject to high humidity, the panels are sealed off to NEMA4X and IP66 ingress standards to protect their sensitive electronics from water ingress, even when they are deployed outdoors. 

In addition, the panels meet T5 temperature requirements by maintaining an operating temperature of 120°C or less (248°F) in ambient temperature of 60°C (140°F). On the other end of the temperature spectrum, the EXPC-1319 is fully functional down to -40°C (-40°F).

Sunlight-readable displays are typically achieved by increasing power to the LED light bars, an approach that produces a brighter display, yet quickly burns out LEDs and significantly reduces overall product life span. The EXPC-1319's anti-glare, anti-scratch LCD panel is visible in direct sunlight.

The EXPC-1319 contains many features that make it suited for use as an operator panel or as a secure system platform for machine control. It comes standard with an Intel 1.8GHz Atom core D525 platform. Depending on preference, the operator can select to use the LCD in either touch-screen or standard mode. 

Serial interfaces, Gigabit LAN ports, USBs, and VGA ports tested for full compliance with flame proofing requirements round out its impressive feature set, along with an expanded set of self-health diagnostics over SNMP for remote monitoring.
