Fanless design and certified for use in hazardous areas

May 27, 2021

ARISTA, a global provider of the computing platform and KPI visualization for production automation in numerous industries, offers a variety of production solutions for use in Tank Farm and Loading Rack operations. In North America, the tank farm serves as the primary distribution point for petroleum products that, ultimately, arrive at gas stations. These petroleum products typically arrive at the Tank Farm by pipeline or by rail car and are then delivered to the tanks operated by various companies and agencies. Large quantities of products, primarily flammable and combustible liquids, are stored at this location and are then distributed to service stations and other facilities by tank truck.
With their robust, fanless design, ARISTA’s ARP-2200AP Series panel mount PCs are certified for use in Class 1 Division 2, Class 2 Division 2, Class 3 Divisions 1 & 2 hazardous areas and are routinely deployed as HMI workstation in Tank Farm and Loading Rack automated operations.
In addition to their Intel i7 CPU, the ARISA ARP-2200AP series panel mount PCs are available with up to 16GB of memory, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and are compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 10. The ARP-2200AP series computers are equipped with a 5-wire resistive touch screen for flawless HMI (Human-Machine Interface) operation—even when operators are wearing heavy duty industrial gloves. The ARP-2215AP is designed with a 4:3 aspect ratio and includes a 15-inch LCD display with 1024 x 768 resolution. The ARP-2217AP (17-inch LCD display) and ARP-2219AP (19-inch LCD display) both use a 5:4 aspect ratio and have a 1280 x 1024 resolution. The ARP-2221AP (21-inch LCD display) employs a 16:9 wide screen aspect ratio and has a 1920 x 1080 resolution.
Paul Shu, President of ARISTA Corporation, commented on the company’s ARP-2200AP Series panel mount PCs, “The ARISTA ARP-2200AP Series computers are totally fanless, rugged systems that are available in sizes to accommodate most any work environment. Equally important, they are compatible with multiple versions of the Windows operating system to ensure seamless integration. These panel mount PCs deliver outstanding performance—even when the operator is wearing gloves—and their fanless design eliminates operation interruptions due to inevitable cooling fan failure. I have every confidence that these PC systems will prove to be invaluable in the most rugged environments.”
