The digital evolution in hazardous areas

11 June 2024

Approved for use in Zone 1/21 and DIV 1, the Smart-Ex® 03 is the intrinsically safe smartphone for your 360-degree communication in hazardous areas. Communicating with your colleagues, fulfilling tasks or completing paperwork in the office with the desktop mode – the Smart-Ex® 03 is your reliable companion.

Intrinsically safe smartphones offer fully digital processes in the Ex-zone. They help to digitalize mobile workers’ jobs. Specially certified, workers don’t have to think about safety, collaboration and efficient work.

The intrinsically safe 5G smartphone Smart-Ex® 03 from Pepperl+Fuchs has been fully developed in Europe, leveraging the inhouse expertise and know-how of the Pepperl+Fuchs subsidiaries ECOM Instruments and Aava Mobile. Certified for use in Zone 1/21 and DIV 1, the smartphone features the latest technical standards such as 5G, Wi-Fi 6E, and eSIM, making it ideally equipped for flexible worldwide use in public and private networks.

The Smart-Ex® 03 is predestined for a wide range of applications such as communication, digital workflows and work order management, operational safety, scanning, asset management, predictive maintenance, augmented reality applications, or IoT integration. Thanks to the desktop mode and full support of the USB 3.1 Type-C standard, the smartphone can be connected directly to a computer monitor, keyboard and mouse via a multiport adapter or a docking station and thus can serve as a fully-fledged replacement of an office PC. It is also the only intrinsically safe smartphone which features a fingerprint sensor to unlock the smartphone or authorize the use of apps.
