FAQ on TxBR - v2.1
April 2015 – Page 1 of 12
Applicable to Beijer Electronics iX TxBR and PPC TxBR Products
General Availability:
iX T15BR – April 2014 / PPC T15BR – July 2014
iX T7BR – April 2015 / PPC T7BR – April 2015
Note: the TxBR is a general reference to the entire product family. It includes the T7BR and the T15BR. For iX specific
references, iX TxBR may be used; for panel PC specific references, PPC TxBR may be used.
1. How would you describe the iX TxBR and PPC TxBR?
“R” is for rugged and reliable. The TxBR line has been designed to survive in extreme environments -- extreme temperature,
shock, vibration, direct sun, or hazardous locations. The products are approved by major classification agencies for hazardous
environments (UL Class I Division 2, ATEX Zone 2, IECEx Zone 2) as well as to maritime societies (ABS, DNV, GL, LR,
KR) for use on vessels and off -shore installations. The units are designed to IP66, NEMA-4X and UL 50E Type 4X
(outdoor) specifications for dusty and wet elements. The iX models have comprehensive HMI functionality including
advanced alarm, trend, tag, audit and event management, state of the art graphics and object library, intuitive design
environment, and universal connectivity including a complete line of drivers for communications with all major automation
brands.
2. What are the main differences between the T7BR and the T15BR?
The T7BR has a 7” display, the T15BR has a 15” display (screen size is measured diagonally). Standard iX TxBR models come
with a 1 GHz Atom CPU but only the iX T15BR can be ordered with a higher performing 1.6 GHz CPU. Other than size and
performance options, the units are very similar.

3. How are the iX TxBR models different than the PPC TxBR models?
The PPC TxBR models (7” and 15”) are rugged panel PCs loaded with Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) operating
system. The iX TxBR models (7” and 15”) are rugged HMIs based on Windows CE 6.0 operating system. The PPC versions
do not include the iX runtime software; the iX versions do. The PPC TxBR has more memory and storage than the iX TxBR
(2 GB RAM versus 1 GB and 16 GB Flash versus 4 GB). The PPC units can be used for some SCADA and other Windows
applications where the hardware will be installed in harsh, rugged and direct sun environments. The iX units are used in the
same environments as the PPC version but do not support Windows PC applications as the PPC versions do. iX is the Beijer
programming application used to design the screen layout and controller communications; it comes standard on the iX TxBR.
This is what defines it as an HMI (vs a Panel PC).
4. How does the iX T7BR related or compare to the iX T7B?
The units share similar housing, dimensions, appearance and connectivity options but many of the internal are different due to
the rugged requirements of the T7BR.

6. How does the PPC T15BR relate or compare to the PPC T15C
The PPC T15C is a 15” panel PC with Windows 7 Ultimate or WES7. The PPC T15BR is also a 15” panel PC that comes with
WES7. The units share similar housing, dimensions, appearance and connectivity options but many of the internals are
different due to the rugged requirements of the T15BR. The PPC T15BR has many hazardous and marine certifications, a
wider temperature rating, extreme dust/water protection, broader input power rating and brighter display; that the PPC T15C
models do not. (There is no PPC T7C (7”) model to compare against the PPC T7BR (7”).)

11. What branding options are available for the TxBR?
There are branding options for the iX TxBR and PPC TxBR. They can be ordered without Beijer’s logo on the front or they
can be branded with a custom logo or product identifier. There are minimum order quantities (MOQ) and may require a onetime set-up fee. A Beijer sales representative will be able to provide this information.
12. What industries and applications will find the TxBR units attractive?
Electronics deployed in rugged environments vary. Typically, this includes outdoor deployments as well as dusty, wet, hot,
cold and/or hazardous settings. Beijer customers vary but the typical industries that seem to need electronics designed for
rugged environments include:

13. What other display sizes are available with these rugged characteristics?
The TxBR can be order with 7” and 15” display sizes. Beijer will release a 12” (T12BR) model in 2016. The QTERM-A7 (7”)
and QTERM-A12 (12”) are available with many of the same rugged design features, but in a slightly different form factor. See
these rugged touch panels on Beijer Web sites: www.beijerinc.com or www.beijerelectronics.com.
14. Does Beijer have other electronic products designed for rugged environments?
Yes. Many of the Westermo and Korenix networking products – switches, routers, industrial networking computers, I/O,
media converters – operate in extreme temperatures. Westermo and Korenix have a number of independently certified Class I
Division 2, ATEX, IECEx and maritime products. Both Westermo and Korenix are part of the Beijer Electronics Group.
15. When Beijer refers to rugged design, what testing is done to insure the design criteria are met?
Beijer performs extensive testing to ensure the line of rugged terminals meet high environmental standards and to guarantee
reliable operation in most environments. We use three main phases of testing to ensure the quality of our products:
qualification testing, acceptance testing and sustaining testing.






Temperature, Humidity, Thermal Shock - A typical qualification test will be a 24-hour test, with the temperature
cycled between the high and low limits every four hours. Humidity testing is typically a five day test with the unit
soaking at the rated temperature and humidity for the entire period. Thermal shock subjects the unit to a rapid coldto-hot or hot-to-cold thermal shock.
Sealing - There are a numerous sealing specifications, such as NEMA-4X, UL 50E Type 4X (outdoor), IP66, SAE
J1455. In some tests, an independent laboratory uses high pressure water jets to certify that no water penetrates the
unit or housing.
Vibration / Shock / Drop - All rugged terminals undergo some level of vibration testing (sinusoidal sweep, random
and PSD). A typical test will be two hours of vibration to specified levels on each of three axes. An independent
laboratory uses a “drop tester” – a machine designed to drop the unit to ensure the most rigorous impact.
Key / Touch Screen Durability - All touch screen designs are rated to two million actuations. These parameters are
logged and provide a clear picture of touch screen durability.
Power Line Transients - All terminals must meet a level of resistance to power line transients (e.g., load dumps,
reverse polarities, positive and negative spikes) and must have power supplies that can operate properly under “dirty
power” conditions.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) - Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the understanding of interference
between electrical equipment including HMIs due to electromagnetic disturbances generated and received by the
equipment. HMIs must be immune from a certain level of electromagnetic interference (EMI) in order to operate

properly. They also must not emit electromagnetic disturbance that will impact the operation of nearby electrical
equipment. There are mandatory immunity and emissions standards which HMIs must comply. Products are EMC
verified either by the manufacturers where self-declaration is allowed or certified by independent laboratories.
Rugged HMIs are often designed to broader EMC specifications than standard HMIs. For example, the T15BR will
withstand a higher electrostatic discharge (ESD). This helps minimize problems of ungrounded personnel coming in
contact with the HMI, important in hazardous locations. Rugged HMIs will also be designed (or hardened) to tolerate
higher radiation emissions from adjacent machinery or sources. Rugged HMIs will have low electromagnetic
susceptibility and high immunity.
16. Can you explain the differences between IP Code and NEMA?
The IP Code and the NEMA are two similar though independent rating systems against particles and water intrusion into
mechanical casings and electrical enclosures, such as an HMI.
The IP Code originates from IEC 60529:


the first digit (IP x _) represents the degree of protection against solid particles
the second number (IP_ y) is for liquid protection.

National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has a similar rating system for enclosures involving both hazardous
and non-hazardous locations:
NEMA Type Definition
1
General-purpose. Protects against dust, light, and indirect splashing but is not dust-tight; primarily
prevents contact with live parts; used indoors and under normal atmospheric conditions.
2
Drip-tight. Similar to Type 1 but with addition of drip shields; used where condensation may be
severe (as in cooling and laundry rooms).
3, 3S, 3X
Weather-resistant. Protects against weather hazards such as rain and sleet; used outdoors on ship
docks, in construction work, and in tunnels and subways. 3X includes corrosions.
3R
Intended for outdoor use. Provides a degree of protection against falling rain and ice formation.
Meets rod entry, rain, external icing, and rust-resistance design tests.
4 and 4X
Watertight (weatherproof). Must exclude at least 65 GPM of water from 1-in. nozzle delivered from
a distance not less than 10 feet for 5 minutes. Used outdoors on ship docks, in dairies, and in
breweries. The 4X model has corrosion resistance.
5
Dust-tight. Provided with gaskets or equivalent to exclude dust; used in steel mills and cement
plants.
6 and 6P
Submersible. Design depends on specified conditions of pressure and time; submersible in water or
oil; used in quarries, mines, and manholes.
7
Hazardous. For indoor use in Class I, Groups A, B, C, and D environments as defined in the NEC.
8
Hazardous. For indoor and outdoor use in locations classified as Class I, Groups A, B, C, and D as
defined in the NEC.
9
Hazardous. For indoor and outdoor use in locations classified as Class II, Groups E, F, or G as
defined in the NEC.
10
MSHA. Meets the requirements of the Mine Safety and Health Administration, 30 CFR Part 18
(1978).
11
General-purpose. Protects against the corrosive effects of liquids and gases. Meets drip and
corrosion-resistance tests.
12 and 12K
General-purpose. Intended for indoor use, provides some protection against dust, falling dirt, and
dripping noncorrosive liquids. Meets drip, dust, and rust resistance tests.
13
General-purpose. Primarily used to provide protection against dust, spraying of water and
noncorrosive coolants. Meets oil exclusion and rust resistance design tests.
UL has a NEMA-like similar set of standards. UL 50E standard applies to enclosures for electrical equipment intended to be
installed and used in non-hazardous locations in North America. The UL 50E Types parallel the non-hazardous NEMA Types
as follows:


Enclosures for indoor locations, Types 1, 2, 5, 12, 12K, and 13
Enclosures for indoor or outdoor locations, Types 3, 3R, 3S, 4, 4X, 6, and 6P
IP and NEMA testing and claims can be done by each manufacturer or outsourced to a third party. Self-declaration is
permitted; third-party verification is preferred. The T15BR is IP66 and NEMA-4X verified by a third party; UL 50E Type 4X
verified by UL.

FAQ on TxBR - v2.1
April 2015 – Page 11 of 12
17. Can you explain what hazardous certifications the TxBR products meet?
The TxBR products are certified for use in hazardous locations by various certifying bodies. These certifications allow
terminals to operate in areas where hazardous gases and vapors are occasionally present (Division 2 or Zone 2). These include:



NEC/CEC - A North American intrinsically safe directive organizing hazardous areas into Classes and Divisions.
Hazardous classifications are defined by USA National Electrical Code (NEC) and Canadian Electrical Code (CEC).
The T15BR meets Class I Division 2 requirements (gas/vapors/liquids not normally present but may exist).
ATEX - A European directive that protects employees for explosion risk in zones where there is a potential risk. The
T15BR meets ATEX Zone 2 requirements (an explosive mixture is not likely to occur in normal operation and if it
does exist, it does so only for a short time).
IECEx - A hazardous area certification for products and services recognized and accepted worldwide. It is defined by
IECEx 60079-15. The T15BR meets IECEx Zone 2 requirements (an explosive mixture is not likely to occur in
normal operation and if it does exist, it does so only for a short time).
18. Can you explain what marine certifications the TxBR products meet?
Initially, none, but those certifications are in process. The actual testing is complete. The paperwork often takes months to
complete after the actual testing has been completed. Maritime certifications are established to ensure that ships and off shore
structures are constructed safely. There are dozens of certifying agencies around the world. Beijer primarily focuses on
agencies and certifications that are recognized in our geographic and target markets. These include:





ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) is a North American certification that promotes security of life, property and the
natural environment.
DNV (Det Norske Veritas) is a Norwegian certification that helps manage risk in all phases of the ships life.
GL (Germanischer Lloyd) is a German certifying agency setting standards in technology, safety and quality in the
maritime industry. GL is now part of DNV.
LR (Lloyd’s Register) is a UK-based organization that governs materials used, structures, machinery and control
systems used in marine applications.
KR (Korean Register of Shipping) is a South Korean-based non-profit classification society certifying maritime
structure design, construction and maintenance.
The TxBR can be installed in many locations on a ship like engine room (where conditions can be extreme), not just on the
bridge. The TxBR meets certain locations classes for the DNV, GL, ABS, LR and KR certifications are:





Temperature Class D
Humidity Class B
Vibration Class B
EMC Class B
Enclosure Class C (per IEC 60529)
