RX Antenna Coupler Enhancements
28 May 2019
Solexy’s patented (7,057,577) Explosion-Proof Antenna Coupler permits the installation of Off-the-Shelf non-Ex certified antennas in hazardous areas.
This coupler is designed to be used directly with listed explosion proof housings or conduit fittings.
An integrated blocking circuit prevents hazardous energy reaching the antenna if a radio, modem or access point failure occurs. It also allows for antenna removal, and remote mounting, in hazardous areas.
The coupler’s robust design allows for connection to practically any RF device and antenna. It is a highly flexible and cost effective solution to traditional hazardous area RF system deployment.
The coupler can also be used as a coax cable bulkhead in NEMA/IP Ex rated enclosures.
The RX series coupler is approved for hazardous locations and can be installed with a simple wrench.
Isolated antenna ground
Our (patent pending) isolated ground option (RX1..) provides isolation from the coax ground and housing ground, combined with a capacitive circuit, solves potential ground loop issues sometimes present in remote mount antennas and further isolates ground noise from the RF signal.
New updated Haz Loc approvals
The RX Series is certified ATEX, IECEx and for USA & Canada as an apparatus, and can be installed
per the conditions of acceptability, without further assessment (no inspection required).
North America approval (USA & Canada) includes Class & Divisions, and Zones (AEx).
IECEx certification is issued from an Australian notified body, allowing the RX coupler to be installed in Queensland mines.
