Pepperl+Fuchs has launched the Pad-Ex 01 P12, a new tablet for professional use in hazardous areas in Zone 2/22, Division 2

The tablet is equipped with the Windows 11 Pro 64-bit operating system and 12th generation Intel Core i5 processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics, offering maximum efficiency for demanding tasks. With its robust, compact and lightweight design, the device is ideal for outdoor use.

The Pad-Ex 01 P12 is certified to protection class IP64, thereby protected against the ingress of dust and splash water on all sides. It offers battery life of up to 14 hours. Featuring a capacitive 11.6-inch FHD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and DynaVue technology as well as a brightness of up to 1,000 cd/m², it offers exceptional readability even in direct sunlight. In addition, the model offers four modern touch modes – glove, pen, water, and finger, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

The tablet has an optional desktop docking interface, so it can be quickly and easily transformed into a PC and seamlessly integrated into office and corporate networks.

Designed for demanding and hazardous environments

The Pad-Ex 01 P12 is ideal for use in highly demanding sectors such as warehousing, field service and logistics, as well as in particularly hazardous areas and sectors such as hydrogen production, the chemical, oil and gas industries and for the mobile management of large-scale facilities, including inspection, maintenance and operation.

“With the Pad-Ex 01 P12, we are providing the world's first fully ruggedised 11.6-inch ATEX/IECEx tablet with a 12th generation Intel processor. It is characterised by its slim and compact design for the modern mobile workforce. The combination of durability, outstanding performance and a large display makes the device an ideal complement to desktop PCs, laptops or wall-mounted displays and can even replace them completely. This makes the Pad-Ex® 01 P12 a solid, reliable, and indispensable companion for mobile, computer-supported work in hazardous areas,” explained Joerg Hartleb, head of Product Management at Pepperl+Fuchs subsidiary ECOM Instruments.
