hes april 18 22Wireless X IECEx & ATEX Zone 1 Access Point

BARTEC PIXAVI has been the leader within wireless technology for hazardous areas for the last 18 years.

Now are introducing the Wireless X – the worlds smartest, smallest and lightest IECEx and ATEX Zone 1 wireless access point ever made. Based on both clever engineering, cutting edge material science and state of the art wireless infrastructure, we are now eliminating the need for bulky and heavy enclosures and external antennas.

Introducing the smart, user friendly, lightweight and circular
Wireless X!

The Wireless X has both IECEx and ATEX Zone 1 and Zone 2 certification. The Wireless X can incorporate the latest technology from industry leaders such as Cisco, Aruba and others. The flexible design allows for POE, Fiber, daisy chain, beamforming antennas and other novel configurations. It will also be the only hazardous area access point to offer 802.11ac and 802.11ad. You can fit access points with internal antennas as well as external antennas. The clever EXde design allows for all components to be in one, neatly
designed package.

BARTEC PIXAVI was the first to introduce a Wi-Fi product for hazardous areas when we introduced the Cisco Aironet access point to the ConocoPhillips operated Ekofisk field in the North Sea in 1998. Since then, we have had various wireless products on the market, and created thousands of WiFi networks in hazardous areas. We have created some of the world’s largest Wi-Fi networks, and many of these are still in use, 18 years later. Our antennas and enclosures have also been used for creating WirelessHART, Bluetooth, ISA 100, 2G/3G/4G as well as Wi-Fi networks.

The combination of smart design, developed in cooperation with some of our key customers, allows for cost reduction when it comes to installation, commissioning, inspection and maintenance. Firstly, the low weight and size means reduced time spent on designing and installing the access points. Secondly, having only one Exe compartment to inspect reduces time. Some customers expect that they can reduce the inspection cost and time by at least 50 %. Smart design allow for quick and easy access to Ex-e compartment for inspection. Customers can choose to send access points to us free-issue or we can provide a complete solution, which is ready for deployment in Zone 1. The device is manufactured in Norway.
