Tab-Ex® 03 DZ2 Combines Ease of Use, Advanced Data and Device Security in One Tablet

MC PepperlFuchs Built on Experience 3 400

The Tab-Ex® 03 DZ2 8" multi-touch display can be operated with gloves as well as with an included S Pen—thanks to the wet touch function, even outdoors in rain and snow. The tablet also incorporates a freely programmable red (emergency call) button, e.g. for alarms or push-to-talk (PTT). With 4 GB RAM and 64 GB ROM, it offers the ideal conditions for even faster data transfer due to additional data storage. Both data transfer and easy charging of the 4,900 mAh battery take place via the pogo pin connector. In addition to a battery life of up to 11 hours, the Tab-Ex® 03 DZ2 is equipped with a powerful 64-Bit Octa-Core processor and the latest Android 10 version. Furthermore, the Android tablet features Google ARCore for augmented reality applications. This allows the device to be used for remote support, training, and individual enterprise tools ranging from asset management to device inspection as well as predictive maintenance.

Biometric authentication and the KNOX security solution integrated into Samsung mobile devices provide users with advanced data and device security. The Samsung KNOX security system ensures that IT administrators can easily and reliably secure, deploy, and manage corporate-owned mobile devices. In this way, all corporate requirements are met throughout the entire device lifecycle and confidential data is consistently protected against malware or phishing attacks. Therefore, only authorized individuals can access corporate information, keeping data protected in the event that a device is lost.

MC PepperlFuchs Monitoring Condition of Plants w Vibration Sensors 3a 400

To enable long-term monitoring of vibrations, Pepperl+Fuchs recently launched a new portfolio of vibration sensors. You can find out what distinguishes these products in the following blog article. Using a wind turbine as an application example, we will also show you how you can use vibration and acceleration sensors in combination to keep an eye on both long-term and short-term changes in vibration.

The portfolio of vibration sensors

Pepperl+Fuchs has recently started offering a range of vibration sensors to perform reliable measurements of vibration velocity and acceleration in low or high frequency ranges. Compared to similar products, Pepperl+Fuchs’ vibration sensors have approvals up to SIL 2, a large measuring range of up to 128 mm/s, and automatic condition detection for ball bearings. Due to their robust housing and encapsulated electronics, the sensors impress with maintenance-free operation and a particularly long service life.

The three designs in the portfolio are available with different certifications and approvals. In this way, you can find the right vibration sensor for every application:

  • VIM3 series: The compact VIM3 series is suitable for applications up to SIL 1/PL c, and has output options for analog or IO-Link.
  • VIM6 series: The VIM6 series is approved for hazardous areas up to Zone 1/21. With an extended temperature operating range of -40°C … +125 °C, the sensors are ideal for high-temperature areas.
  • VIM8 series: Due to a particularly robust housing made of duplex steel, the vibration sensors of the VIM8 series are designed for use in offshore applications as well as in harsh and hazardous areas of Zone 1/21. Moreover, the sensors have an approval up to SIL 2/PL d.


Vibration sensors vs. acceleration sensors

Not only vibration sensors, but also acceleration sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are used to measure changes in vibration: Both record the vibration acceleration in g. Nevertheless, the sensors differ in their technical operating principle and are therefore each suitable for different applications.
