i.safe MOBILE GmbH has established itself worldwide as a specialist in explosion proof and extremely resilient mobile communication devices and as an innovation leader. At i.safe MOBILE, we develop and market devices such as mobile phones, smartphones, tablet PCs etc. for safe use in hazardous areas and for robust use in industry and outdoors. Our devices are precisely tailored to the requirements of our customers in the chemical, pharmaceutical, petroleum processing and other demanding branches of industry. Our many years of experience enable us to do this. We provide evidence of the high quality and safety of our products through approval procedures based on European and numerous global standards. The satisfaction of our customers is proof of the reliability and ease of use of our devices in practice day after day.


Since March 2023, i.safe MOBILE has been strategic partner and investor in the Austrian start-up Senseven GmbH. Senseven is the developer of a software and AI-based mobile inspection system for industrial assets.


We develop the products and solutions for communication in potentially explosive and professional industrial areas ourselves. This enables us to implement customer requirements precisely and incorporate all international standards into the development. We provide other companies with support as partners in the context of development consulting on explosion protection.  This contributes to the constant growth of our wealth of experience.

Our practical and theoretical know-how is also in demand among the relevant standardization bodies that we belong to. This cooperation guarantees that we are always up to speed with the legal regulations. It goes without saying that our products meet all the relevant safety and quality requirements.

Our contribution to sustainability, which we make through the longevity of our products, is important to us. We achieve this through the high resistance of the devices to mechanical, thermal and chemical loads, as well as customer-specific and long-term service and detailed maintenance plans.

Users around the world use our high-quality communication technology with the certainty of being up to date with the latest technology.
