HMI for harsh environments

Harsh conditions in processing plants are hard on visualization systems. Control room HMI that can take the heat and whatever else hazardous locations offer on the process floor is now available.


Harsh conditions in processing plants are hard on visualization systems. Control room HMI that can take the heat and whatever else hazardous locations offer on the process floor is now available with VisuNet operator workstations. And no additional software licensing is needed.

The KM915 and KM919 (15 in. and 19 in. monitors) from Pepperl+Fuchs, a manufacturer of process automation in Twinsburg, Ohio, are encased in a thin, but rugged NEMA 4/4x stainless or painted steel housing that will weather washdown environments.

Continuously welded seams are ground smooth to mitigate heat without venting or cooling fans.

One of the three internal KVM extenders allow operators to work safely up to 400 m from the server. Small transmitter and receiver pairs send keyboard, video and touchscreen or mouse signals while maintaining high quality video resolution.
