DT362 Purpose-built Tablet Proven Safe to Use in Areas where Flammable Gases, Vapors, and Liquids Could Exist
DT Research announced that its DT362 Rugged Handheld Tablet has been tested and Class 1 Division 2 Certified to operate safely in hazardous areas where flammable gases, vapors, or liquids may be present within sufficient quantities to be explosive or ignitable. The C1D2 certification is recognized as the most widely accepted non-incendive standard in North America for products used in hazardous environments.
As mobile electronic devices become ubiquitous in workplaces across industries, C1D2 certification has become increasingly important to ensure the safety of all workers. Many work environments have both hazardous and non-hazardous areas. In these situations, despite policy and warning signs, there is a high potential that workers may accidentally carry a non-compliant mobile electronic device into a hazardous environment.
With the C1D2 certification, companies in many industries can be confident that the DT362 Rugged Tablet can be used safely in environments where ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, vapors, or liquids might exist, such as aircraft hangers, military environments, chemical and gas handling areas, petroleum and gas processing plants, food processing, paint manufacturing and spraying facilities, dry cleaning facilities, and textile mills.
“As a company specializing in reliable purpose-built solutions for many vertical markets, we strive to adhere to the tough high standards required in a broad set of industries,” said Daw Tsai Sc.D., president of DT Research. “We are proud to add the C1D2 certification to the robust features of the DT362 rugged tablet, making it a viable solution in many more environments.”
As part of the certification, tests and evaluations were performed on the DT362 tablet where hazardous material not normally present in an explosive concentration may accidentally exist through rupture, breakage, or unusual faulty operation.
