Many upstream oil and gas operations on the rig floor require fast and easy to install Panel PCs. Our mobile Rig Floor PCs of the SHARK platform (xx8) have been specially designed for use in environments requiring a high level of flexibility. Features such as outstanding resistance to shock and vibration, or the sunlight-readable display with multi-touch technology make the units ideally suited for these operating environments. The standard VESA 200 mount, the handle and the stands allow fast and flexible installation and removal.

The modern, powerful Intel Core i7 or AMD G-Series T56 processors fitted behind the display ensure fast data processing. Fail-safe data communication is realised via redundant Ethernet ports, or an intrinsically safe WiFi module (802.11a/b/g/n). To ensure that only authorised users can operate the HMI, the 21.5" unit is optionally available with an RFID reader mounted behind glass for fast operator identification. To enable video conferencing, both HMI versions can optionally be configured with Bluetooth interface and front camera.
