Wireless Technology in ATEX environments
iWAP 107 Universal Wireless Enclosure System
- Designed to accommodate the wireless technology of your choice, from any vendor
- Intrinsically safe RF outputs
- Easy to install and maintain
- ATEX & IECEx Zone 1 and 21 certified
- US & Canada Class I Div 1 / Zone 1 and 21 certified
Use any wireless technology
Choose the latest 802.11AC access points from market leaders like Cisco, Aruba, Siemens and more – make the most of their MIMO functionality for high performance Wi-Fi, even in metallic process environments.
You can also choose from a range of other wireless technologies, such as UHF RFID readers, LTE routers, and IoT gateways including LoRa, WiHART, or ISA100.
Installation and maintenance are simpler and quicker too. You can use standard tools – the internal iSOLATE501 RF isolator and iSOLATE-CT Connector Transits mean there’s no need for barrier glands to install antennas – and what’s more, the antennas can be connected and disconnected live for minimal downtime.
The iWAP107 is designed to withstand the most hazardous of conditions and is extremely rugged, with IP66 ingress protection. However, we understand that just because equipment needs to be durable, doesn’t mean that it should take up too much space or be awkward to install. The iWAP107’s internal design packs lots of functionality into a compact space, giving outer dimensions of just 415 x 315 x 250mm. Weighing in at around 30kg for an aluminium option, the iWAP107 can be easily manoeuvred for installation across a range of locations.
Intrinsically safe outputs
With intrinsically safe RF outputs and explosion proof N-type antenna connections thanks to Extronics’ iSOLATE technology, you can choose from a wide variety of standard simple apparatus antennas. Get better reliability, lower cost, and improved coverage without the need for certification, and still be fully compliant with all hazardous area equipment regulations.
