Advanced technologies to drive production

Energy & Utilities Solution

Industry Challenges

The oil & gas industry is one of the most dangerous and challenging work environments. Because the conditions are risky for both personnel and equipment, reliable and accurate monitoring is crucial to maintaining safe operations. Winmate offers Explosion-Proof panel computers for remote data collection, process visualization, and control. Secure technologies help to improve the productivity, safety, and efficiency of oil refineries. Effectively control processes to lower operation costs and gain more profit. Our computing solutions are deployed in refining and petrochemical applications and have helped many companies improve productivity, safety, and efficiency.

Winmate has technology know-how for the production and development of explosion-proof data processors.

  • Extreme operating environment
    Rugged computers should provide advanced system monitoring even in the most challenging conditions: potential explosive atmospheres, varying temperature, explosion to water, and rain.
  • Remote locations
    The HMI or rugged tablet PCs must accurately identify and track assets and communicate data from remote sites to enable real-time data monitoring and communications.
  • Environmental regulations
    All the workstations for oil & gas applications must pass the highest scrutiny of certification and inspection.

Overview

It is required by law and legislation by countries worldwide that electrical equipment must be designed and manufactured for safe use in environments or atmospheres that may be potentially flammable or explosive. These hazardous areas are flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings. At oil and gas production operations and facilities, these hazards and dangers are commonplace. Flammable or explosive substances may be present in varying quantities at all times, so fire and explosion protection and safety certifications for all electrical equipment used in these operations are mandatory.

Winmate explosion-proof solutions include:

  • 12.1"~23.8" ATEX/C1D2 M series modular design panel pcs.
  • 15" and 19" Panel Brightness1000nits ATEX Panel PC with Intel i5-1135G7, features the EX-type of brass cable glands M16/ M12 ports.
  • Full IP65 Box PC with Intel® Core™ i7-3517UE, 1.7 GHz equipped with M12 connectors.
  • Intel® Tiger Lake UP3 Core rugged Box PC series, optional with Modular front Display as a Panel PC.
  • ATEX/C1D2 DIN rail box series with wide array of I/O support, wide operation temperature range for hazardous area application.
  • 7" Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 660, ATEX Zone 2 rugged android PDA.

Winmate's rugged mobile computers are built to last, reducing the total cost of ownership over time. Retailers, manufacturers, logistics companies, and field service organizations choose Winmate portable computers daily to improve daily operations.

What're ATEX Grade Rugged Computers

Oil rigs and remote pipeline locations are some of the most dangerous and challenging work environments anywhere. Winmate rugged computers are designed for the environments of an oil refiner or a drilling rig and come with ATEX Zone2 and Class1 Division2 (C1D2) certifications. Winmate offers ATEX Zone 2 and Class 1 Division 2 (C1D2) certified panel computers, embedded processors, and industrial displays for remote data collection, process visualization, and control. Safe technologies help to improve the productivity, safety, and efficiency of oil refineries. Effectively control processes to lower operation costs and gain more profit. Our computing solutions are deployed in refining and petrochemical applications and have helped many companies improve productivity, safety, and efficiency.

Core Capabilities / Advantages

Intrinsic Safety Schematic Design

  • The electronic system's schematic design must ensure that the temperature under all fault conditions can never rise to a value that may cause the ignition of explosive gasses. Our engineers design the intrinsic safety schematics for the explosion-proof product line.

Intrinsic Safety Schematic Design

Non-Sparking Device

  • Intrinsically safe design means igniting a hazardous atmosphere (explosive gas or dust) cannot occur. This is achieved by ensuring that only low voltages and currents enter the dangerous area and that no significant energy storage is possible. Tout thermal design also prevents devices from overheating.

Non-Sparking Device<

High Processing Power and Fanless Thermal System

  • High-performance computing from Intel® Core™ i5/i7 CPU for the most demanding tasks. The thermal system is fanless, featuring a streamlined enclosure for highly efficient heat dissipation.

High Processing Power and Fanless Thermal System

Suitable for Operations in Extreme Working Conditions

  • With the built-in intelligent heater that ranges from -40°C to 70°C, the ATEX panel PC is suitable for operating in outdoor or hazardous environments blistering hot or cold temperatures.

Suitable for Operations in Extreme Working Conditions

No-Air Potting Process

  • Potting is the process of filling a complete electronic assembly with a solid or gelatinous compound for resistance to shock, vibration, thus excluding moisture and corrosive agents. Winmate performs no-air potting of electronic components in-house. Potting prevents the substrate from failing in harsh environments or from vibrations or other potentially-damaging uses.

Safety and Standards

Quality Management System

Winmate factory is UL and CSA certified with Quality Management System.

Product Testing & Certifications

To meet the safety qualification, Winmate offers ATEX and Class 1 Division 2 (C1D2) certified solutions for maintaining safe operations and collecting detailed, sensitive data in the remote rig and pipeline locations.

Winmate generally uses both the North American National Electric Code (NEC) and the European ATEX directive for the equipment classification.

Product Testing & Certifications

NEC (National Electric Code)

According to OSHA, NEC defines hazardous locations as those areas where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings. NEC classified hazardous locations in three ways; type, condition, and nature.

IEC (International Electrochemical Commission)

IEC defines the flammable gases and vapors, and then combustible dust, each of these types is assigned into three different zones, and each zone then requires equipment built for category I, II, or III.
