Zone 1 ATEX Wi-Fi Access Point

Unique features and solutions

The Wireless X is nothing but a revolution within Wi-Fi in hazardous areas. BARTEC PIXAVI has created the smallest, lightest and highest performing Wi-Fi access point for zone 1 ever. Based on both clever engineering, material science and state of the art wireless technologies, we are now eliminating the need for bulky and heavy enclosures and antennas. Introducing the smart, user friendly and lightweight Wireless X!

State of the art

The new, compact design, with a new and smart combination of metal and plastic material technology has a several benefits. You do not need external antennas. This means you can save cost of the antenna, cable and glands. By using the latest and greatest Wi-Fi access points from industry leaders such as Cisco, we were able to both offer the newest and best Wi-Fi technology, in a more compact form factor. Having the latest Wireless technology ensures reliable operation as well as coverage, security and network speed. The Wireless X can be used for both Wi-Fi, WirelessHART, Bluetooth, ISA 100 as well as 2G/3G/4G mobile networks. The Wireless X is available in both POE and Fiber with integrated Dual Band antennas and MIMO technology, depending on the technology you choose inside the device.

Smart mounting bracket

The innovative mounting bracket makes it easy to install the access point by just one person. The bracket can be mounted at the installation location prior to the arrival of the access point, and when you have the connections terminated (POE or Fiber with local power) in the EX-e chamber, you can easily install the Wireless X without any additional tools.

The standard dimensions, and “turn and click” lockable fastening mechanism makes sure the device can be fitted to any flat surface. This makes the bi-annual inspection of EX-e chamber easy, saving as much as 50 % of the time and effort needed for inspections. Mounting options for pole mounting also available on request. The mounting kit includes smart dome stand box and safety wires.

Industrial Internet of Things

Wireless X is more than just Wi-Fi. We would describe it as a brand new wireless platform. We believe that the Wireless X will play a key role in the Industrial Internet of Things revolution.
