A hazardous area human machine interface (HMI) provides a safe and convenient way for human personnel to control machinery, without putting human life or valuable infrastructure at risk.
The Bartec Polaris Smart HMI is one example of this intuitive way to bridge the gap between human operator and automated equipment.
Its high-resolution touchscreen display is LED backlit, ensuring good visibility of the screen without removing from the HMI’s ratings for explosive environments.
Inside is a third-generation Intel Atom-powered panel PC with twin 1.46 GHz processors, USB and Ethernet ports, and Windows 7 or Windows 10 software.
The HMI is designed to cater for a variety of challenging environments, including various certifications for explosion protection – full specifications are available on the product page.
It is also available in a gap-free exterior for use in clean rooms and with a choice of capacitive or resistive 7″ full colour screens.
Supported by a comprehensive product datasheet and informative product showcase video, it’s an excellent way to give human operators a safe central point of access to machinery in hazardous areas.
