The POLARIS Control is the ideal solution for all simple applications requiring texts and small-scale graphics. For the display, an extremely conveniently readable daylight blue-colour display is utilised. With the Control, process visualisation can be directly connected in explosive areas without the need for additional intrinsically safe isolation cards. There is no need to lay blues lines for intrinsically safe circuits. A separate wiring of the data line is not necessary. The POLARIS Control can be directly connected to the PROFIBUS-DP or the communication interface of the control station. RS422/RS485 or PROFIBUS-DP are available, for example. An intrinsically safe USB interface for a USB Ex i memory stick enables the device configuration to be transferred easily. On request, the devices are also available as turn-key system solutions in a Stainless-steel enclosure for wall or floor mounting. The visualisation is created with the “BMS-Graf- pro“ programming package (Version 6.xxx), which has been specially developed and optimised for this purpose.
