New iWAP107 - Releasing Wi-FI efficiency in hazardous areas
08 July 2014
Extronics has recently launched the iWAP107 - an ATEX & IECEx certified Zone 1 access point enclosure system that delivers dramatic performance improvements and cost benefits compared to basic Ex d box solutions. The new iWAP107 system allows the latest MIMO Access Points from market leaders such as Cisco and Aruba to be easily deployed in Zone 1 hazardous areas, improving wireless performance and reliability.
The system employs Extronics unique iSOLATE500 RF galvanic isolators which makes all RF outputs intrinsically safe. This allows standard non-certified antennas to be used; greatly reducing cost whilst providing significant performance gains. The iSOLATE500 also allows conventional wiring of RF connections which dramatically reduces both install and maintenance times.
Key features are:
* Simple & cost - effective Wi-Fi deployment
* Allows use of powerful standard antennas
* Improved coverage - fewer access points
* Vastly reduced install & maintenance
* Future proof - no re-certification necessary
* Zone 1 ATEX & IECEx certified
Designed for use in ATEX and IECEx Zone 1 hazardous areas, the iWAP107 is the perfect system to allow data to be unlocked from process areas such as oil rigs and heavy petro-chemical sites.

The iWAP107 is designed & built by Extronics - a company with over 20 years of experience in the hazardous area market.
