Industry 4.0 – Intelligence and Communication in Hazardous Environments

ecom Instruments GmbH Presents a New Mobile Computer for Explosive Environments

ASSAMSTADT, GERMANY–(Marketwired – April 11, 2013) – Industry currently stands before its fourth technical revolution. After mechanization, mass production and the use of electronics for automation, the age of Industry 4.0 has now begun: wireless communication and digital networks form the basis of the new technological era in modern industry. ecom instruments distinguishes itself with the new and future-oriented PDA i.roc® Ci70 -Ex as pioneer for digital communication in explosive environments.

The use of modern communication systems in industry already connects products and manufacturing processes wirelessly with digital networks. At the same time, increasing digital communication also means a higher demand that terminal devices be equipped with RFID technology, WWAN or WLAN and should be able to communicate online. With innovative developments in mobile communication and identification systems, as well as mobile computers in explosive environments, ecom instruments GmbH responds to the latest requirements of the chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and oil and gas industries. The result is embodied by the i.roc® Ci70 -Ex, a mobile computer that in many aspects points to an industrial revolution for ex-protected handheld computers.

The i.roc® Ci70 -Ex works with Windows Embedded 6.5.3 based on the Intermec CN70e platform and is certified not only for ATEX and IEC zones 1/21, but also for NEC Class I, Division 1. With its modular design, the PDA can be flexibly equipped with different heads ranging from barcode scanners to RFID in low, high and ultra-high frequencies. Even retro-fitting or exchange is possible. As a result, customers have a high degree of investment security if, for instance, they wish to switch from 1D barcodes to RFID HF.

Along with all the important WLAN standards (802.11 a/b/g/n), the i.roc® Ci70 -Ex offers a UMTS module for the first time in mobile computers certified for zone 1. An Internet connection is now also possible without the previously required WLAN infrastructure.

“We’re facing a critical change in industry, for which the virtual world, decentralised process intelligence and the creation of highly flexible and efficient production sites will reach a completely new level. ecom instruments GmbH provides innovative mobile technology for explosive areas in response to the needs of the Smart Factory of tomorrow. This is revolutionary in the segment of explosion-protected systems, which usually trail behind the actual technological standard”, commented Carl Henderson, Managing Director of ecom instruments ltd. in the United Kingdom.

میکس تھون نے اباؤٹ ڈاٹ کام 2013ء ریڈرز چوائس ایوارڈز میں تین اول انعام حاصل کر لیے

– میکس تھون کلاؤڈ براؤزر نے ڈیسک ٹاپ، اینڈرائیڈ اور آئی پیڈ زمروں میں سرفہرست اعزاز اپنے نام کیے

سان فرانسسکو، 2 اپریل 2013ء/پی آرنیوزوائر–

عالمی اور کراس پلیٹ فارم براؤزر میکس تھون نے آج اعلان کیا ہے کہ اس نے 2013ء اباؤٹ ڈاٹ کام (About.com) ریڈرز چوائس ایوارڈز برائے “چھوٹی مارکیٹ کے لیے بہترین ڈیسک ٹاپ براؤزر”، “بہترین اینڈرائیڈ براؤزر” اور “بہترین آئی پیڈ براؤزر” کے لیے تین اول اعزازات جیت لیے ہیں۔

مسلسل تیسرے سال میکس تھون کلاؤڈ براؤزر نے “چھوٹی مارکیٹ کے لیے بہترین ڈیسک ٹاپ براؤزر” کا اعزاز اپنے نام کیا، رواں سال اسے 63 فیصد ووٹ ملے۔ دیگر دو زمرے، جن میں میکس تھون نے اعزاز جیتا، حال ہی میں تخلیق کیے گئے اور دونوں میں میکس تھون نے واضح برتری حاصل کی: “بہترین اینڈرائیڈ براؤزر” میں میکس تھون نے 67 فیصد رائے دہندگان کو متاثر کیا اور دوسرے زمرے میں 78 فیصد رائے دینے والوں نے میکس تھون کو “بہترین آئی پیڈ براؤزر” قرار دیا۔

میکس تھون کے انٹرنیشنل ایفرٹس کے وی پی کارل میٹ سن نے کہا کہ “اس طرح کے اعزاز کا جیتنا دو چیزوں کو ظاہر کرتا ہے، ایک، انہوں نے ظاہر کیا کہ صارفین اپنے براؤزر سے مزید حاصل کرنا چاہتے ہیں۔ وہ اس پر مطمئن ہو کر نہیں بیٹھے کہ ماضی میں کیا چیز کام کرتی تھی بلکہ یہ اہم ہے کہ اب کیا کام کرتا ہے اور مستقبل میں کیا چیز کرے گی – میکس تھون نے اس کام کو خوبصورتی سے انجام دیا ہے۔ اور جب صارفین وہ چیز حاصل کرتے ہیں جو وہ چاہتے ہیں، تو اپنی دریافت کے بارے میں دوسروں کو بتانے میں بالکل نہیں شرماتے۔ اور دوسری بات، یہ جیت دنیا بھر کی مارکیٹوں میں ہمیں ملنے والی شاندار ترقی کا ایک اور اشارہ ہے۔”

جیسا کہ صارفین موبائل اور کلاؤڈ-بیسڈ طرز زندگی کو اپنا رہے ہیں، اینڈرائیڈ اور آئی پیڈ پلیٹ فارم پر میکس تھون کو تسلیم کرنا اس کے دور اندیشی، تجربے اور ایسے براؤزر کی تخلیق میں شہرت کے بارے میں بتا رہا ہے جو صارفین کی ضروریات کو پورا کرتا ہے۔ صارفین زیادہ تر میکس تھون کی رفتار، اس کی مفت کلاؤڈ سروسز اور ہمیشہ تبدیل ہوتے ایچ ٹی ایم ایل 5 کے لیے صنعت کی رہنما سپورٹ کا ذکر کرتے ہیں۔ آپ میکس تھون کی مکمل خصوصیات کی فہرست یہاں دیکھ سکتے ہیں www.maxthon.com

اباؤٹ ڈاٹ کام کا قارئین کے ذریعے چلنے والا ایوارڈ پروگرام 2008ء میں سائٹ کے ٹیکنالوجی چینل پر شروع ہوا اور وسیع تر موضوعات میں بہترین مصنوعات، خصوصیات اور سروسزکو نمایاں کرنے تک پھیل گیا۔ ویب بھر میں، ریویوز، فین بلاگز اور دیگر براؤزرز کے ساتھ تقابل میں میکس تھون دنیا بھر میں صارفین کی جانب سے مستقل سراہا جاتا ہے۔
