ECOM Tab-Ex 03

The Pepperl+Fuchs brand ECOM Instruments has launched the third generation of its 8’ Tab-Ex series – the intrinsically safe Tab-Ex03 tablet in the DZ2 (for Zone 2/22 & Division 2) and D2 (for Division 2) variants.

The tablets are based on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3 tablet and is designed to be slim and lightweight. It has state-of-the-art technology for harsh environments and more RAM and external storage than earlier models. It runs on Android 11 with an update guarantee and includes the new Enterprise Edition of Samsung Knox for high data and device security.

Operators can use gloves or the S Pen stylus, which writes like a real pen with high pressure sensitivity. On the large screen with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, construction drawings, for example, can be viewed in detail and greater size than on a smartphone display. There is a 13 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera. The tablets can be connected to a desktop computer via Samsung’s DeX function.

The integrated Google ARCore makes the tablet fit for augmented reality applications in Industry 4.0, such as for plant management or predictive maintenance. An individually programmable button enables, among other things, a quick and effective alarm, emergency calls or push-to-talk (PTT) for maximum employee safety at all times. Solutions from ECOM’s Digital Products & Services division mean the tablet is easy to set up and manage, and can be updated at any time. By analysing historical data, safety-critical processes become visible.

The Tab-Ex 03 is available immediately in the DZ2 and D2 variants, with the DZ1 (for Zone 1/21 and Division 1) variant following in mid-2022.
