Introducing a new and unique modular design concept, the MTL Gecma Work Station is a new generation of remote operating terminals for Ex Zone 1/2/21/22.
The new modular workstation range addresses the need for visualisation in hazardous areas. But that is not all; packed full of features and state-of-the-art technology, users can also optimise their productivity and reduce plant costs while increasing plant safety.
The units have been designed to address the environmental challenges of obtaining visualisation within harsh and hazardous areas. Building upon decades of experience and expertise and the significantly large installed base of its predecessor, the MTL Gecma Work Station range includes Remote Terminal (RT), Thin Client (TC) and a personal computer (PC) to meet a wide variety of applications. Suitable for the strictest of hygienic conditions and aggressive production environments, its slim, flexible modular construction also includes individually certified modules to allow safe maintenance even in hazardous areas.

As wireless devices such as mobile phones and laptop computers become more reliable and cost effective, there is growing interest amongst the process industry as to the benefits to be found from enabling such devices to be used in hazardous areas. However, unlike most industries this is not a simple task. Installing wireless networks in hazardous areas requires careful, expert planning and execucution. John Hartley, Managing Director of Extronics, explains the hazards posed by radio frequency sources and the issues involved when installing wireless networks in hazardous areas, and how to minimise the potential risk.
Beka’s new third generation timer/clock’s applications as a timer include simply displaying the time interval between two events detected by a hazardous area sensor. As a clock, local time can be displayed in various 12 or 24 hour formats and the display may be synchronised to a pre-set time via the external reset input. Optional control outputs may be configured to switch loads on or off at pre-set times each day. (more…)
