In addition to its portfolio for intrinsically safe mobile devices, the Pepperl+Fuchs brand ecom is launching three new peripherals that facilitate and expand communication in harsh industrial environments and hazardous areas. The world’s first intrinsically safe smart watch, Smart-Ex® Watch 01, the world’s first Ex-certified portable infrared and HD camera, Ex-Camera CUBE 800, and the rugged RSM 01 and RSM-Ex 01 remote speaker microphones expand the range of solutions for the connected mobile worker.
Certified for use in Zone 2/22 and Div. 2, the Smart-Ex Watch 01 from the Pepperl+Fuchs brand ecom can be connected with mobile devices like the Smart-Ex® 02 smartphone and the Ex-Handy 10 feature phone. The high-performance smart watch features a five-day battery life and a rugged design that withstands both shock and vibration. The rotating bezel allows mobile workers to quickly and intuitively scroll through apps and instructions, even when wearing gloves. Advanced voice control and wrist gestures create a new form of hands-free communication and navigation that increases employee protection and operational efficiency by improving process coordination.
The CUBE 800 dual camera system withstands temperatures from -20 °C to +55 °C and is made for use in harsh industrial environments and Zone 1/21 and Div. 1 hazardous areas. Users can choose between or combine two different modes: an optical camera captures both HD videos and high-resolution images, while a thermal camera mode delivers information for indicating hot spots. Using the augmented reality platform Onsight Connect, recordings can be encrypted and shared in real time or controlled remotely. A magnetic auto-latch is an easy and secure way to attach the Ex-Camera CUBE 800 to hard hats and headbands. The intrinsically safe camera system can also be attached to a monopod for recording in hard-to-reach areas, which allows hands-free and, above all, safe working conditions in the field.
The RSM 01 remote speaker microphone for harsh industrial environments and the RSM-Ex 01 for use in hazardous areas feature a rugged, IP65/67-rated design. Both devices deliver a clear audio signal, have an integrated noise reduction function, and feature multipurpose buttons that can be individually configured and operated with gloves. A 2200 mAh lithium ion battery ensures operating times of up to 78 hours.
