Original Press Release:
World's First Intrinsically Safe Industrial Mobile Computing Platform
Diagnostic Instruments Ltd has announced the launch of the world's first intrinsically safe mobile computing platform of its kind.
Based on the popular Windows CE operating system, and certified by SIRA for II I G, EEx ia IIC T4 (Nth American equivalent: NEC 505 Zone 0 - A, B, C, D; NEC 500 Div I - A, B, C, D) the DI-225-IS is the latest addition to DI's existing 'mobile computing platform' product range.
Combined with leading edge tailored services, ranging from design through to manufacture, the DI-225-IS will further enhance Diagnostic Instruments' unique range of mobile computing solutions. With a vast range of possible applications, the DI-225-IS is set to revolutionize the petrochemical, process, oil and gas workplace. Indeed, any environment where safety is an issue.
Housed in an ergonomic enclosure molded from petrochemical and solvent tolerant material, the DI-225-IS is a highly specified computer carefully designed to maximize battery life. Weighing less than 700grams, and with a hand-strap, stylus, and belt clip, the unit is robust yet compact.
The 1/4 VGA touchscreen allows for quick and easy data entry via the display or using the keypad. Fast action and function keys can be user-defined to enhance and expedite data entry. Linking back to the traditional desktop-computing world couldn't be easier. The unit provides an RS232 connector and cable, as well as IrDA connectivity for remote data transfer.
All of this power and functionality is housed in an enclosure that is drop-tested to 2 meters (6.6 ft) and sealed to IP65, making it dust and waterproof. This combination makes the DI-225-IS a robust device that cannot only match the rigors of the
environment, but can be used in areas outside the scope of alternative instruments.
