In industries such as the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and packaging industries, all equipment must meet strict requirements for hygiene, robustness, and reliability. Featuring all-round IP protection, fanless design, and built with high-quality industrial components , Advantech’s SPC series HMIs are completely dustproof and waterproof to satisfy industry requirements and withstand operation in harsh environments.
Unlike other devices that require a bulky control cabinet for protection, Advantech has designed the housing of its HMIs to serve as a waterproof enclosure. Thus, with the integration of a VESA mount kit or support arm, these HMIs can be installed directly on the machine and reducing the over equipment footprint.
In addition to all-around dust/water protection, these rugged HMIs are built to meet industry-specific requirements (such as the DIN-1672-2 and IEC 61131-2/UL 61010 specifications).
With waterproof housing, these HMIs can be installed directly on the machine with the integration of a VESA mount kit or support arm.
Supporting from various mount options to extension units, the systems are easily deployed in diverse environments for a wide range of applications.
Just over 30 years since its establishment, Advantech has become a leader of the global industrial PC (IPC) market, with an over 30% market share.
This is because Advantech offers a comprehensive range of IPC products that deliver reliable operation in extreme environments.
In the food and beverage industry, all equipment must satisfy the strictest hygiene requirements. Most applications necessitate regular equipment sanitization with high-temperature/pressure water and cleaning with harsh detergents, including acidic and alkaline disinfectants. Thus, systems with an IP66/IP69K rating are essential for providing full protection from water and dust ingress.
Pharmaceutical manufacturing must adhere to strict environment regulations regarding airborne particulate matter. HMIs must be able to withstand operation in hazardous and corrosive environments that involve regular cleaning with disinfectants, high-pressure/temperature oils or emulsions, and even acids and alkalis. To satisfy stringent cleaning requirements, all systems should have an IP rating of at least IP66, ideally IP69K, to ensure complete protection and reliability.
For applications such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical, or electronics packaging, equipment is often exposed to harsh weather, dirt, water, corrosive materials, flooding, and wide temperature ranges. Thus, HMIs used to support such applications must have an IP rating of IP65, IP66, or IP67 to satisfy relevant hygiene and safety standards.
Automobile manufacturing factories are typically dusty and dirty. To monitor and control all processes, as well as communicate with machines, rugged HMIs are employed. However, without an IP rating of at least IP65, such HMIs may accumulate dust, leading to equipment failures. Therefore, to ensure stable operation and minimize production interruptions, HMIs should be equipped with comprehensive protection from dust ingress.
