19 July 2013

Airo Wireless is pleased to announce the new intrinsically safe I-Safe 28, the first and only smartphone to achieve certification under UL 913 Standards for intrinsic safety. 

Available for immediate delivery, the I-Safe 28 is also the only handset on the market that provides cell phone, WiFi, Push-to-Talk (PTT), email, fully independent GPS, and telematics in a ruggedized Windows Embedded Handheld smartphone that also runs ERP, process control, HSSE, compliance and other software from the world’s leading providers.

Certification under the EU preferred ATmosphères EXplosives ATEX Directive, and the IEC System for Certification to Standards relating to Equipment for use in Explosive Atmospheres (IECEx System) will follow in days.

These certifications, and others, taken together will provide Airo’s customers with world-wide certification coverage at the highest levels for global enterprise workers in explosive areas.
