Digi International introduced a line of wired and wireless device networking solutions designed for hazardous environments.
The product line includes the Digi Connect WAN IA cellular router, XTend radio frequency (RF) modem, PortServer TS Haz serial server and Digi One IAP Haz serial server.
These products are designed to network enable devices in manufacturing and industrial environments where exposure to volatile liquids and gases and severe temperature ranges is common.
The new products are Class 1, Division 2 rated, certifying them for use in environments where volatile flammable liquids, vapors or gases may exist, Digi said.
Industries exhibiting these characteristics include power distribution, oil and gas, water/wastewater, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and agribusiness to name a few.
The products also feature conformal coating, a spray-on treatment applied to the printed circuit assembly (PCA) that provides a protective barrier against moisture and corrosion.
The products are also rated and lab tested to meet extended operating temperatures typically required in industrial environments, Digi added.
