Pepperl+Fuchs Inc. — an industrial automation company that develops, manufactures and provides industrial sensor technology, intrinsic safety and explosion protection products globally — announced the inclusion of several HMIs into Rockwell Automation’s Encompass Program. The Encompass Partner Program is part of the PartnerNetwork. Joining several other of Pepperl+Fuchs’ products in this Program are the Div 1 Edge Series HMI and the Zone 1/21 VisuNet GXP System.
The VisuNet Edge is an all-weather workstation optimized for washdown areas up to Div 1. Edge workstations feature an adaptable indoor/outdoor, all-weather watershed housing that is especially suited for washdown areas.
The VisuNet GXP is a modular, field maintainable HMI system for life science applications. It offers a compact design with easy setup and maintenance. GXP systems consist of three main components that can be replaced in the field: display unit, power supply and computing unit (PC or ThinManager Compatible Thin Client). With a stainless steel housing, VisuNet GXP components are resistant to all chemicals and detergents commonly found in the life sciences sector — and the VisuNet GXP is the industry’s lightest Thin Client for Zone 1/21 life science applications.
