ATEX devices certified
for
VerticalMan®

VerticalMan® works on any Android smartphone, and does not require a specific phone, but we have certified its operation on some ATEX devices to help customers who have these needs.

All the considerations made in our deepening to choose a rugged smartphone remain valid also for ATEX devices.
 
Obviously here the only technical feature to be kept in particular evidence is the type of ATEX area. Below is the classification of areas according to Wikipedia:

ATEX - Zone classification

The ATEX Directive covers explosions from flammable gas/vapors and combustible dust/fibers (which, contrary to common belief, can lead to hazardous explosions).

The following are classifications for zones that can produce explosive atmospheres.

Gas/Vapor/Mist:

The following zones are each defined as a place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture of air or dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapor, or mist.

  • Zone 0 – …is present continuously or for long periods or frequently.
  • Zone 1 – …is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally.
  • Zone 2 – …is not likely to occur in normal operation, and if it does occur, will persist for a short period only.

Dust/Fibers:

These are defined as a place in which an explosive atmosphere is in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in the air…

  • Zone 20 – …is present continuously, or for long periods or frequently.
  • Zone 21 – …is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally.
  • Zone 22 – …is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for a short period only.
