The HazPAC® R9-8.4 is a Class I, Division 2; ATEX Zone 2 touchscreen computer for hazardous areas.
The HazPAC R9-8.4 combines a powerful RISC-based computer, bright, 8.4″ widescreen LCD display, and resistive touchscreen to create a flat panel computer perfect for a wide variety of HMI and control applications. The system provides intuitive operator input using a resistive touchscreen interface that is perfect for a wide variety of industrial applications and environments.
For increased durability, the touchscreen features a glass surface that is waterproof, abrasion/scratch resistant, and impervious to flames, chemicals, solvents, and stylus use. Featuring an industrial, LED backlight that gives the LCD extended life over CCFT-backlit models, the system offers an amazing -30°C to 60°C operating temperature range with no heaters or cooling fans required.
Powered by a 400 MHz ARM9 microprocessor, the system includes 128 MB RAM and 256 MB Flash memory for maximum performance in embedded systems. Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, and digital interfaces. The system is powered from your 9-30VDC source or select from a variety of Sealevel power supply options.
The HazPAC R9-8.4 is intended for panel mount applications and provides an aluminum front bezel that maintains NEMA 4/IP65 protection from sprayed liquids. The system carries the ETL electrical safety mark and is tested and certified for use in hazardous locations classified as Class 1, Division 2 (Groups A, B, C, D T5). Additionally, the system is certified in accordance with the European ATEX directive and IECEx scheme requirements for use in Zone 2 classified areas.
Local or remote I/O expansion is available using Sealevel SeaI/O modules. Choose from a variety of I/O configurations including optically isolated inputs, Reed and Form C relay outputs, TTL interfaces, A/D, and D/A. The HazPAC R9-8.4 connects to SeaI/O modules via the RS-485 expansion port and communicates using Modbus RTU.
Microsoft Windows CE 6.0 R3 and low-level hardware drivers for system I/O are factory-installed to provide the fastest time to market. Additionally, the HazPAC R9 software package is equipped with the Sealevel Talos I/O framework, which offers a high-level object-oriented .NET Compact Framework (CF) device interface. This interface provides an I/O point abstraction layer with built-in support for easily interfacing the system’s I/O.
