VarTech System’s Hazardous Area Class 1 Division 2 Certified LCD Monitors


VarTech Systems Inc. has announced the release of our Hazardous Area C1D2 LCD monitor line available in fully sealed & panel mount configurations, in multiple sizes. VarTech’s hazardous area LCD Displays are certified for Class 1 Division 2 environments such as oil and gas drilling platforms, underground and surface mining, chemical processing, pharmaceutical and food processing, and outdoor HMI. These industries can now greatly benefit from the latest hazardous area technology by incorporating Vartech’s industrial and hazardous area certified LCD displays in to their data acquisition and workflow monitoring systems.

VarTech’s ToughStation Hazardous Area fully enclosed and panel mount LCD video monitors are applicable for use with rig floor computers withstanding the harsh environments presented by oil drill rigs in situations such as hydraulic fracturing or fracking, directional drilling, hydrocarbon well logging or mud logging, catalytic cracking and crude oil / petroleum refining. They are also designed for the extreme conditions of underground mining including but not limited to distribution mining, tunnel boring and production mining. These non-purged LCDs ensure explosion proof protection in underground mining environments where coal dust and other combustible materials are present in an enclosed atmosphere. They are built to resist rugged conditions and shock and vibration inherent in strip mining, surface mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal applications. These units can also serve in both chemical engineering and processing industry areas involving vapor recovery, corrosive chemical solvents, plastic or polymer production and fixed bed reactors. They are certified for Class 1 Division 2 areas where gas, ignitable vapors or flammable dust may be present. The non-incendive construction makes them appropriate for use in food processing applications where grain dust is present and corrosive cleaning elements and wash-down computing is necessary.

VarTech Systems Inc. is an ISO 9001 registered company specializing in the manufacturing of military, marine and industrial grade displays and computer workstations.

Washdown Demo Video for Vartech’s Hazardous Area, C1D2, Fully Sealed, NEMA 4X, Touch Screen Computers

VarTech Systems has produced a new video demonstration showcasing the wash down capabilities of their line of industrial grade, fully enclosed computers. Created in-house and on-location at the sales and marketing headquarters in Baton Rouge, La., this presentation depicts a hazardous area, C1D2, fully sealed, NEMA 4X, touch screen computer receiving a 2400 psi, hose-directed, total wash down. One of VarTech’s own sales personnel, Mark Frakes, gives the viewer an up close look at this rugged touch screen computer by demoing its touch interface capabilities and its fully sealed water proof construction. Boasting a NEMA 4X (IP66), gasket sealed enclosure with glandular, sealed cable connections, Frakes tests the limits of this IPC with a prolonged, high pressure wash down. The computer has a wide operational temperature of -10 to 60C assisted by the rear dissipation heat sink.

The unit is equipped with the Intel Atom fan less processor with dual core Intel processors optional. The touch screen functions and overall PC operations remain unaffected by the direct, high-pressure wash down giving testimony to the unrelenting nature of this industrial computer. With no external vents, the fully enclosed NEMA 4X and NEMA 4 IPCs allow no opportunities for the intrusion of water or foreign air born particles such as dust, dirt, etc. “This demonstration will really give viewers a firsthand account of the rugged characteristics and construction of the products we manufacture here at VarTech Systems,” Frakes says.

Retrofit Your Old Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Display with NEW LCD Technology from Vartech Systems Inc.

retrofit_graphicMany industrial/medical/military applications have CRT monitors embedded in their associated control equipment, which makes upgrading difficult and sometimes impossible. Their unique shape, screen size, mechanical format and communication interface can be vastly different than current LCD technology models. More often than not, substantial modifications to the customer’s host equipment are needed which can be costly, inefficient or even impossible. Another distinct problem lies in communication between the much older host equipment and the new LCD display. Typically, current LCD communication protocol will not interface with the host equipment which might be 10-30 years old.

A Cost Effective Solution
By special development of our own Signal Recognition and Scaling software, and access to an extensive library of older signal timings gained from 25 plus years of CRT monitor manufacturing, VarTech has created Multiscan “Universal” LCD technology with unique 15kHz to 64kHz display capabilities. We have the unique ability to “Retrofit” all new VarTech electronics as well as a new Flat Panel LCD into your existing chassis. This eliminates any concerns regarding mounting into your operator equipment and as well provides reliable communication between the new LCD and your older video format.

Vartech’s Retrofit Program:

  • VarTech Supports ALL Legacy CRT and LCD Monitors
  • We can Retrofit most CRTs with Current LCD Technology
  • Our LCD Retrofit Technology Supports ALL older video signals: CGA, EGA, BNC’s, RS170
  • Retrofitting your old CRT with Vartech’s LCD technology is an energy efficient and cost saving solution to replacing all your original host equipment
