Triton Z2 is the latest addition to family of computing displays that deliver maximum hazardous-classified area protection
CALGARY, ALBERTA (JUNE 13, 2006) Continuing its commitment to develop the fullest line of industry-leading hazardous classified area displays, Kontron today announced the Kontron Triton Z2 workstation display. The Kontron Triton Z2 offers a powerful, cost-effective solution for the oil and gas industry and carries the ATEX Zone 2 / CI D2 certification. Offering superior protection with a IP56 rating, it offers enhanced processing power, strong safe area protection enhancements and rugged features designed to deliver optimum, reliable performance in hazardous environments. The Kontron Triton Z2 along with Kontrons full line up of rugged and extreme mobile computing products will be featured at the Global Petroleum Conference in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, June 13 15 at booth #7001.
For maximum computing performance, the Kontron Triton Z2 features Centrino-based Intel Pentium M processor technology. It also offers a 15-inch full sunlight viewable display with EnhancedInfrared touch-screen technology that features false-trigger intelligence for increased productivity. Kontron is the only manufacturer to offer this unique touch-screen design that allows decoupling of the touch-screen from the LCD. The unique modular design also has easily serviceable subassembly units that greatly shorten repair time resulting in excellent reliability and the highest average uptime in the industry.
Kontrons Triton product line has made a positive impact on the oil and gas service industry and the Z2 workstation is no exception with hundreds of units operating in a very tough, hazardous environment while offering value, reliability and performance in the field, said Michael Kadri, vice president of sales Kontron America. The Z2 workstation is the result of three years of engineering efforts and represents a paradigm shift in the oil and gas exploration and drilling services industry.
The Kontron Triton Z2 continues the companys leadership legacy for the offshore and land-based oil and gas well logging, rig floor instrumentation and mud logging applications. Last month, the company introduced the Kontron Triton D1 display, which is the industrys first explosion proof computing display targeted specifically to the oil and gas industry.
The Kontron Triton Z2 is now available. Pricing for the Triton family of products starts at $6000.
