The CHALLENGER range of remote PC terminals are designed for use in extreme hazardous areas such as those encountered in Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Biotech and Oil and Gas industries. CHALLENGER Terminals can be configured in a modular manner to meet with the plant installation requirements. All the components including the display, touch screen, keyboard, pointing devices, etc. – are certified for use in hazardous areas as control panel-mounted modules and can be mounted independently into various enclosures / walls or into our CHALLENGER FHP standard enclosure which provides environmental protection.

CHALLENGER components are modular thus allowing for individual configuration in the most diverse of production plants. All electronic components such as displays, keyboards, pointing devices, etc. are designed as panel-mount modules and can be mounted in our enclosures as well as in existing cabinets. The metal and plastic materials used are based on long-term experience in hazardous and industrial areas, and resist the strongest of impacts. Specially tested materials for sealings ensure the IP66 / NEMA 4X protection, which is often required.
