Companies in oil and gas, mining, pharmaceuticals, marine, food processing, battery manufacturing, and others operate in hazardous environments that require the use of ATEX (ATmosphere EXplosible) certified equipment. ATEX certification ensures that the equipment is safe to use in explosive environments and maintains a secure working environment.
At GroupTalk, we have extensive experience providing our group communication solution with Push to Talk, Personal Alarms, GPS positioning, Dispatch, Text messaging, and more to companies requiring ATEX certified equipment. By collaborating with world-leading suppliers of ATEX certified smartphones and accessories, such as Pepperl+Fuchs, we can assist these companies in leveraging a modern solution in a digitized world without compromising safety.
Pepperl+Fuchs has now launched a new robust and modern Smart-Ex 03 smartphone certified for ATEX use in hazardous environments. Smart-Ex 03 is Pepperl+Fuchs' most innovative smartphone, operating on networks such as 5G / 4G / 3G / 2G and WiFi. The smartphone features programmable buttons for Push to Talk, alarm, and multifunction. The multifunction button can be configured for desired GroupTalk features, such as send a Ticket to Dispatcher (see video here), Repeat Last Message, or Mute, and more.
As Smart-Ex 03 operates on both public and private 5G and 4G mobile networks, it enables efficient work, large data transfer, and minimal latency (delay) for Push to Talk calls during collaboration. Smart-Ex 03 can be used worldwide in workplaces with an increased risk of explosion within Zone 1/21 & DIV 1, Zone 2/22 & DIV 2.
With Smart-Ex 03, mobile workers, such as those in the oil and gas industry, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, or energy companies, receive the market's most advanced rugged ATEX smartphone, following the concept of corporate mobility from Pepperl+Fuchs. A complete range of professional accessories is available for Smart-Ex 03, and together with the GroupTalk service, an optimal user experience for group collaboration is ensured.
Watch the video below where Smart-Ex 03 and the accessory RSM-Ex 01 (Remote Speaker Microphone) with ATEX certification from Pepperl+Fuchs are used in conjunction with the GroupTalk service.
