Operator interface for hazardous areas
York Haven, Pa. -Exploiting inherent advantages of flat panel displays over CRTs, Daisy Data's Factory Mutual approved displays enable a lower cost for hazardous location displays. Flat panel displays use less power and generate less heat, so they can be designed as 'non-incendive.' This opens the door to simplified hazardous area operation. In Division 2 areas, non-incendive displays require no purge system generating significant cost savings. In Division 1 areas, a simple type Y purge can be used instead of a complex purge system with signal interlocks. Units are available in sizes from 10.4- to 20.1-in. with 15.1- and 18.1-in. standard. Near Field Imaging touchscreen technology is also available.
