The whole petroleum industrial system starts from wellhead and ends with the refine system. Between wellhead and refine factory is the distributed system such as pump station and pipeline. Operating environments of this industry are full of explode-able materials which may cause tremendous damages, no matter at which part of production processes.
A well-functioned monitor and control system is able to manage remotely, reducing the needs of human visits for maintenance. Oil fields are wildly distributed around the world. Since the oil field may be located in the desert, under the sea, or in the polar zone, the Industrial network must cover wide operating temperature to work properly in these harsh environments. The -E models of Lantech products can be used in extreme environments with an operating temperature range of -40°C to 75°C.
Since oil is flammable and easily to explode, network devices must have different standards to meet with all kinds of hazardous condition. The Lantech products have passed UL Class I Division II for Group A, B, C and D hazardous location, which is a safety certification especially suitable for petroleum industries. With UL Class I Division II approval, the Lantech products can be implemented in hazardous or explosive condition without accelerating the damage.
