Eaton's MTL GECMA RT remote operating terminals are approved for hazardous environments
Eaton has launched a new MTL GECMA RT remote operating terminal. The MTL GECMA RT has a modular design and is a next generation remote terminal which features use in hazardous EX zone areas in chemical, pharmaceutical, refinery and oil and gas industries worldwide.
The MTL GECMA RT consists of five electronic modules: the display unit, power supply, communications modules, keyboard and mouse. The terminal’s modularity means upgrades to existing installations are quick and easy, which can save time, and minimise costly maintenance and downtime. Traditionally, the whole unit would have to be dismantled off site, but now with MTL GECMA RT, individual parts can be replaced simply on site, increasing plant availability.
The modules are individually approved to global hazardous certification for Zone 1 environments.
