Gas utility operations are not confined to residential and commercial customer sites for equipment installations and service connect and disconnect orders. Gas Utilities technicians often cover much broader geographic areas than electric and/or water utilities, and operate and manage urban, remote, and rural assets that enable end-to-end generation and transmission of gas utility services. Field teams benefit from having the entire map base on their field-ready rugged tablets so they don’t have to rely on communications to get important data when faced with an emergency leak. Xplore rugged tablets have the features available to deliver these requirements.
Whether your utility field technicians are assigned to gas pipeline inspections, gas leak repairs, or scheduled maintenance tasks, they are likely working while on their feet in extreme environments. They require a rugged mobile computer that will deliver the same critical workflows as a desktop or rugged laptop, but that is lightweight enough to go where they go with the I/O ports they need – and work as hard as they do in the field, without compromising task completion capabilities.
That's why Xplore ATEX and C1D2/C1Z2 compliant rugged tablets are ideal for gas utility companies responsible for building, maintaining, and repairing infrastructure assets that require unique safety consideration. Natural gas has an inherent risk of explosion if exposed to certain dust, high heat, and chemical elements. Xplore rugged tablets provide the right level of protection for gas utility field technicians to safely complete all of their mobile workflows in any environment.
