HTP: Hazardous Panel Enclosure Workstation Specifications

15″ – 21.5″ screen sizes

Rugged monitor and computer panel enclosure workstation for operator interface applications in Div 1 and Div 2 hazardous areas.

The hazardous panel enclosure workstation has a friendly operator interface design and several rugged inset keyboard options to best suit your application and environment. The fully sealed workstation enclosure is available in NEMA 4 black powder-coat aluminum or 316 stainless steel with NEMA 4X protection. Mounting options include pedestal mount, mounting tabs, or swing arm mount for easy installation of the workstation exactly where it’s needed.

The purge system enables safe operations within Div 1 and Div 2 environments by preventing the accumulation of flammable gases and ignitable dust inside the enclosure. Using a purge and pressurization system is standard practice for the explosion protection of energized HMI terminals within a hazardous area.RoHS Compliant

Type X or type Z purge systems available:

Type X and type Z purge systems are available for VarTech’s rugged monitors and panel computers. Type X purge systems reduce the classification of the protected monitor or panel computer enclosure from Div 1/Zone 1 to non-hazardous while type Z purge systems reduce the classification from Div 2/Zone 2 to non-hazardous.

Type X Purge

Type X purge

This purge system reduces the hazard of Division 1/Zone 1 to unclassified within the protected enclosure, enabling use of general purpose, non-hazardous area equipment in a Class I and Class II, Division 1 (or Zone 1) location.

Type Z Purge

Type Z purge

This purge system reduces the hazard of Division 2/Zone 2 to unclassified within the protected enclosure, enabling use of general purpose, non-hazardous area equipment in a Class I, Division 2 (Zone 2) location.
