VarTech System's Hazardous Area C1D2 LCD 10.4 Panel PC Now Available With Intel I Core Processors

Resistive Touch Screen, Class 1 Division 2 Certified, 10.4 Inch, NEMA 4X (IP66), All-In-One, LCD Panel PC Now Available With Intel's i3, i5 and i7 Core Processors

VarTech Systems Inc. has announced that their ToughStation Hazardous Area, Non-Purged, C1D2, 10.4 inch panel PC computer is now available with the latest, powerful Intel i3, i5 and i7 Core processing technology. VarTech's hazardous area LCD workstations are engineered for Class 1 Division 2 environments such as oil rig drilling, underground and surface mining, chemical processing, pharmaceutical and food processing. These industries can now benefit from the latest in computing technology by incorporating the fastest and most powerful processors into their industrial and hazardous area applications.


VarTech's ToughStation VTPC100PS C1D2 certified, hazardous area, 10.4 inch panel PC computer features class 1 division 2 hazardous area testing and certification by an independent agency. The bright active matrix TFT flat panel display boasts 400 nits high brightness illumination. It is equipped with a powerful Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz Processor with optional Intel T4500 2.30 GHz 800MHz FSB Intel Dual Core Processors or the latest Intel i3, i5 or i7 core processing technologies. The VTPC100PS is constructed with a NEMA 4X (IP66), stainless steel front bezel helping to make the IPC resistive to corrosive liquids / materials and suitable for wash down applications. An impressively wide operational temperature range, -10°C to +60°C (14°F to +140°F), is standard on the VTPC100PS.

VarTech's ToughStation Hazardous Area fully enclosed LCD workstations and panel PC computers are applicable as rig floor computers withstanding the harsh environments presented by oil drill rigs in situations such as hydraulic fracturing or fracking, directional drilling, hydrocarbon well logging or mud logging, catalytic cracking and crude oil / petroleum refinery. They are also designed for the extreme conditions of underground mining including but not limited to distribution mining, tunnel boring and production mining. These non-incendive LCD workstations and panel PCs ensure explosion proof protection in underground mining environments where coal dust and other combustible materials are present in an enclosed atmosphere. They are built to resist the rugged conditions and shock and vibrations inherent in strip mining, surface mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal applications. These units can also serve in both chemical engineering and processing industry areas involving vapor recovery, corrosive chemical solvents, plastic or polymer production and fixed bed reactors. They are certified for Class 1 Division 2 areas where gas, ignitable vapors or flammable dust may be present. The Non-incendive construction of this line of hazardous area LCD workstations makes them appropriate for use in food processing applications where grain dust is present and corrosive cleaning elements and wash-down computing is necessary.

VarTech Systems Inc. is an ISO 9001 registered company specializing in the manufacturing of military, marine and industrial grade displays and computer workstations.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
