With intrinsically safe smartphones with android operating system, will allow workers to stay in constant communication while working in a hazardous environment. This will offering explosion proof protection to ensure that tasks are completed on time. This will allow you to make phone calls, capture photos and check information while in a hazardous environment. Our intrinsically safe mobile phones with lone worker protections functionality have been specifically designed for the safety of people working alone. The focus is centred on fusing modern technology and personal emergency response devices to create a device that provides the upmost levels of safety. This phone is able to help locate anyone who has suffered an accident and immediately initiate the necessary measures.

Gas Explosion

   
Zone 0 Zone 1 Zone 2
Area in which explosive atmosphere with a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is present, either constantly or in the long term. Area in which it must be assumed that an explosive atmosphere with a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist arises during normal operation. Area in which it must be not assumed that an explosive atmosphere with a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist arises during normal operations and if so, then only rarely and for a short time.

Flammable Dust

   
Zone 20 Zone 21 Zone 22
Area on which there is an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of flammable dust in the air, constantly, in the long term or frequently.

Area in which is must be assumed that an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of flammable dust in air sometimes occurs during normal operation.

Area in which is must not be assumed that an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of flammable dust in air sometimes occurs during normal operations, and if this happens, then only for a short time.

 

One global platform enabling Mobile Workforce paradigm shift

The launch of ecom’s new hazardous area tablet computer solution Tab-Ex® series triggers a paradigm shift in the way mobile workers work and interact with each other, their remote experts, and the backend systems. This way of working brings with it the opportunity for improved decision making, improved mobile worker collaboration, increased efficiency and collected data quality related to work tasks performed in hazardous areas.

ecom´s development of the Tab-Ex® includes numerous new patents and is built on the Samsung GALAXY Tab Active (GTA) platform. This way hazardous and harsh environment users are enabled to leverage ecom´s expertise in conjunction with Samsung´s benefits.

ecom ATEX tabletThis solution provides compatibility and a wide range of preloaded applications for a safer work environment with unparalleled security functions like device encryption, MDM, VPN and secure connectivity (Samsung KNOX). Being able to offer the same internal tablet, Samsung GALAXY Tab Active, ecom provides a key benefit of consistency in product use - whether Rugged, Zone 2 / Div. 2, Div. 1 or Zone 1.
