5G Android™ and Windows tablet with charging option for hazardous areas
i.safe MOBILE, innovation and world market leader for explosion-proof mobile devices and solutions, will be presenting its latest tablet developments to the trade public at the SPS trade fair in Nuremberg from November 14th to 16th 2023: In addition to the Android based IS940.1, the company has also developed a Windows tablet IS945.1 as a debut. The first 5G tablet for Zone 1/21, together with the 5G smartphone IS540.1, is the ideal addition to the equipment programme for knowledge workers in the field of predictive maintenance management in the process industry.
With two alternative operating systems (Android and Windows), the user has a tablet for data communication in the Zone 1/21 hazardous area that can be ideally integrated into the existing system landscape and infrastructure with 4G/5G campus networks or Wi-Fi 6. The two energy-efficient tablet versions are equipped with the powerful QCM6490 chipset from Qualcomm® Technologies, Inc. optimised for IIoT, a clear 10.1-inch full HD display and a 16-pin ISM interface for secure connection of approved accessories. The world's first charging option for devices within the hazardous area offers the user a wide range of deployment options. Despite its robust design, the tablet is very light and easy to handle, supports Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC and has customisable buttons. The feature package is rounded off by a powerful, replaceable battery, a main and front camera.
Innovation potential of 5G technology
A world first, which i.safe MOBILE is presenting for the first time at the SPS trade fair, is the charging option for tablets in hazardous areas. For example, a connection to the Ethernet network can be realised via a special interface. In the automation sector, the tablet is charged in the Ex-safe docking station directly within Zone 1/21 but can also be used as an operating station for process control systems or for MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems). This provides the user with almost unlimited application options for potentially explosive environments.
The IS940.1 / IS945.1 will be available from mid-2024.
