Ex-Handy 08: hard-line communications in hazardous areas

28 June 2013

ecom instruments has added the new intrinsically safe and 3G enabled mobile-phone Ex-Handy 08 for Zone 1 to its approved product line of mobile communication solutions. It is ecom´s first
3G-enabled cell-phone, which deals with the fact that service providers, for example in the
USA, have already started to shut down GSM networks. 

The Ex-Handy 08 has high performance capability and guarantees software compatibility as well as network compatibility. Depending on the configuration, the Quadband cell-phone merges the functions of five devices al in one.

Above making and receiving calls, there is also a lone worker protection, a camera with video function, an LED Flashlight and walkietalkie communication (push-to-talk). Thanks to the integrated antenna the intrinsicallysafe-cell-phone shows excellent receiving characteristics and above average network coverage. The Ex-Handy 08 currently is the only Ex-device with worldwide proofed software- and network compatibility.

The high-resolution display is protected by rugged and scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass. To
ensure the smooth functioning of the device, different battery capacities with separate
charging options and spare batteries are available. All connections are designed such
that they remain tight and reduce risk, should the closing tab be unintentionally left

Brief overview of Ex-Handy 08

The new intrinsically safe 3G cell-phone Ex-Handy 08, ecom's top-of-the-range model, is
designed for hazardous areas and suitable for phone calls, sms, mms and emails for

functionality, LED-flashlight and push-to-talk.

Thanks to protection class IP68 and Permissible ambient temperatures between -20 °C and +55 °C the Ex- Handy 08 tackles the hardest conditions in harsh industrial environments.
