Trade fair news: SPS (Smart Production Solutions)
ECOM Instruments to display explosion-proof solutions for smart production

Pepperl+Fuchs brand and developer of explosion protection for mobile devices, ECOM Instruments, has announced it will be presenting intelligent solutions for industrial communication in rough environments at the SPS – Smart Production Solutions trade fair to be held in Nuremberg, Germany from 23 to 25 November 2021. The company will exhibit in Hall 7A at Booth 330. “With the use of intelligent mobile devices, hazardous areas can be integrated into the Smart Factory with little effort,” the company said.

“On the Industry 4.0 map, hazardous areas still appear as white spots in many manufacturing operations. The requirements for robustness and explosion protection are high, the terrain extensive, and connectivity often limited. But even in hazardous areas, the intrinsically safe smart devices from the Pepperl+Fuchs brand ECOM Instruments ensure a paradigm shift.”

The company says highlights will include Visor-Ex 01, which it says are “the lightest intrinsically safe smart glasses on the market”, and Tab-Ex 03 DZ2, “the latest model in the Tab-Ex range of intrinsically safe tablets for rough industrial environments”. Fair visitors will also learn how the company’s Digital Products & Services product division’s solution not only facilitate device management, but also “provide new insights into processes with the help of data analysis. After all, smart production thrives on networked information.”

Smart glasses for industrial use

!High camera quality and reliable communication features combined in an ergonomic design: With the Visor-Ex 01 smart glasses from ECOM Instruments, mobile workers get a powerful companion for all tasks that require hands-free use as well as continuous communication. The system utilises the ECOM Smart-Ex 02 smartphone for hazardous areas as a computing unit and a pocket unit for power supply, an intelligent ecosystem is created for a wide range of application scenarios in the industrial sector. A total of three integrated cameras transform the smart wearable into a kind of bionic eye. Two 16-megapixel cameras are centrally positioned to map the wearer‘s natural field of vision – so remote support, for example, sees what is happening from the same angle and perspective as the mobile worker. A secondary camera offers a 6x optical zoom for zooming without loss of quality and scanning of barcodes and QR codes.”

Tablet for rough environments

“The intrinsically safe Tab-Ex 03 DZ2 tablet offers Android 11, a large display and as well as larger RAM and external storage than previous models,” the company said. “The enterprise edition of Samsung Knox ensures high data and device security. The tablet, which is based on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3, is easy to operate with gloves or the S Pen stylus. A 13-megapixel camera is installed for taking photos and videos, and the front camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels. The integrated Google ARCore makes the tablet fit for augmented reality applications in Industry 4.0, for example for plant management or predictive maintenance. Meanwhile, an individually programmable button enables, among other things, a quick and effective alarm, emergency calls or push-to-talk (PTT) for maximum safety and accessibility of employees at any time.”
