In industries with hazardous operating environments, such as oil and gas or chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, implementing mobility solutions has proven challenging. In the presence of flammable gases, vapors and airborne dusts, mobile devices need to be specially designed and tested to adapt to these volatile environments and ensure employee safety.

With the introduction of Pepperl+Fuchs’ Tab-Ex® 02 ruggedized tablet, based on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2, equipping workers in harsh environments with mobile devices is now possible. The ruggedized tablet can be used in Zone 2 and DIV 2 applications and allows workers to complete a variety of tasks efficiently and effectively with added mobility — and added safety.

Whether filling out forms, capturing photos and other critical information via the mobile device’s camera or using the S Pen, businesses can record accurate data in real time and improve decision making. Video streaming is also available anytime and anywhere, so employees can access training and maintenance “how to” videos without having to leave the manufacturing environment.

Make mobility a part of your operating environment by learning how easy the Tab-Ex® 02 is to use in this short SBTV video.

Distinguish your factory through a mobile-first digital transformation.
