the intrinsically safe tablet from Ecom has many attractive features


Typically, most electrical equipment will create small internal arcs (sparks) as they run.  Compact electric devices, such as phones, tablets, and flashlights even generate heat with prolonged use.  During everyday use, these occurrences of heat radiation and small sparks are normal and harmless, but on work sites surrounded with combustible substances, they can easily become an ignition source and a catalyst for an explosion.  When an overheated screen, faulty wiring, or a single spark can devastate a hazardous work environment, compliant product design is imperative for workplace safety.

To be intrinsically safe, an electrical device must be able to operate without outputting too much energy in these types of hazardous areas.  To limit the probability of ignition, intrinsically safe equipment such as a class 1 division tablet runs on simplified, low-current, low-voltage signal and control circuits.

The Tab-Ex® line offers a modern, mobile solution to workers in hazardous locations.  With advanced data collection and an intuitive global platform, your company no longer has to walk the line between safety compliance and efficiency.  The CLASS 1, DIV. 1 tablet from Ecom is the world’s first and only tablet that conforms to the highest standards of intrinsically safe electrical device certification.

Currently, Paragon Data Systems is one of the few system integrators with the experience to work with explosion-proof class 1 division 1 products.  Our hardware is guaranteed compliant.  If your company requires intrinsically safe technology, give our experts a call.
