Explosion Proof Devices from MOBILE

Explosion-proof, mobile communication devices from MOBILE enable you to exchange information safely under critical conditions. With their robust mobile phones, smartphones and tablets, you are on the safe side both in potentially explosive atmospheres and in harsh outdoor environments. All devices are certified to IP68 and are therefore dust and water resistant. Furthermore, they comply with the military standard MIL-STD 810G. The high temperature resistance enables reliable operation even in extreme situations.

Safety Level

High-quality Ex mobile phones, Ex smartphones or Ex tablets are available for explosive atmospheres of zone 1/21 and zone 2/22.

For mining, they have Ex devices of category M1 ready for you. The mobile, robust communication devices of the RG division without Ex classification can cope with rough everyday industrial use.

International Certifications

The ATEX product directive applies in the European Union and the IECEx standard internationally. The approvals of MOBILE’s Ex devices are based on these standards and they are the basis for further country-specific approvals.

In addition, you will find Ex devices that meet the worldwide regulations of American and Asian countries as well as Russia and are approved according to the standards applicable there.

Comfortable Operation

All MOBILE devices are based on the Android operating system, are equipped with technical standards such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and offer a wide range of additional functions.

These include individually assignable buttons, the SOS button, preparation for Push-to-Talk and Loneworker Protection (LWP), amplified loudspeakers, Near Field Communication (NFC) or displays that can be operated with gloves.

Products Zone 1/21

For areas with a high risk of explosions and/or with a high incidence of combustible dust

In potentially explosive atmospheres, Ex-protected communication devices are mandatory. MOBILE phones, smartphones and tablets are, among other things, certified according to ATEX and approved for Zone 1 for gases and Zone 21 for dust. In addition, the devices provide other internationally relevant explosion protection approvals such as IECEX, CSA, EAC, etc. The intrinsically safe devices can therefore be used in areas where an explosive atmosphere is likely to occur during normal operation.
