The Mesa 2 Hazloc Rugged Tablet is the ultimate tool for data collection in extreme environments, and is now available in South Africa through Osiris Technical Systems.

Dubbed the "Hazloc", this tablet was designed to boost productivity throughout every stage of the data collection process, while ensuring safe operation.

This version of the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet by Juniper Systems has a full Windows 10 operating system, and is Class I, II and III, and Division 2 certified. This means this tablet is certified to perform safely even in hazardous locations where explosive gases, liquids, vapours, dusts or fibres and particles may be present.

Ideal for mining, industry, oil and gas

Ideal for mining, industrial and petrochemical applications such as leak detection and repair, refuelling and preventative maintenance and repair, the Mesa 2 Hazloc includes:

* Full Windows 10 operating system;
* Large, 7-inch, IllumiView display for enhanced visibility;
* All-day battery life;
* Outstanding ruggedness with IP68-rated protection against dust and water, even when port covers are removed;
* 1D/2D bar code scanner;
* UHF RFID reader;
* Class I, II, III and Division 2 nonincendive certification; and
* Ergonomically designed hand strap for easy data entry.

Designed for safety, productivity and comfort

"The Mesa 2 Hazloc is designed to not only improve productivity and efficiency when collecting data, but also to do its job safely in potentially explosive environments," said Tom Francom, Industrial Market Manager at Juniper Systems. "Juniper Systems prides itself on providing products with top-notch quality, and the Mesa 2 Hazloc is no different. The tablet performs reliably in any environment, and users can feel confident using it in hazardous locations."

With a full Windows 10 operating system, the Mesa 2 Hazloc provides users with access to an even broader range of software options to meet their data collection needs and is powerful enough to use in place of a desktop computer when in the office. The Mesa 2's 7-inch display strikes a perfect balance between providing ample viewing area for collected data and reducing overall weight for minimal fatigue and superior, all-day comfort.

"The ergonomically designed hand strap allows the tablet to rest comfortably on your fingers, which means that you don't have to hold onto the tablet when entering data," said Stef du Plessis, Managing Director of Osiris Technical Systems. "It is attention to detail and design excellence, combined with excellent value, that sets the Mesa 2 products apart from similar products on the market. The IP68 rating is upheld even when the port covers are removed."
