Pepperl+Fuchs presents the intrinsically safe Smart-Ex 03, a new and future-proof 5G and Wi-Fi 6-capable smartphone that was developed entirely in-house in Europe. The 6-inch device combines all the expertise and know-how of Pepperl+Fuchs subsidiaries Ecom Instruments as a pioneer in intrinsically safe mobile devices and Aava Mobile as an expert in industrial tablets and wireless technologies.
The smartphone with the cutting-edge AndroidTM 13 operating system fulfils the latest technical standards such as 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and eSIM and is therefore ideally equipped for flexible use in public and private networks of mobile service providers or companies worldwide. Thanks to the fast and secure transmission of large amounts of data, users benefit from state-of-the-art functions for communication and collaboration such as remote support, video conferencing or push-to-talk.
The Smart-Ex 03 is predestined for a wide range of applications such as communication, digital workflows and work order management, operational safety, scanning, asset management, predictive maintenance, augmented reality applications and IoT integration. Employees along the entire value chain of the process industry, the hydrogen industry, the energy industry or battery production thus benefit from end-to-end digital processes right into the Ex zones.
Thanks to the 5G wireless standard, the Smart-Ex® 03 offers outstanding connectivity. The technology enables the fail-safe transmission of high data rates of up to 10 Gbit per second with a latency of less than 5 milliseconds.
