i.safe MOBILE has announced the release of the IS540.1, which will be marketed as the world’s first explosion-proof 5G smartphone for highly complex industrial scenarios
The new device is an ATEX/IECEx Zone 1/21 industrial smartphone with a high-performance chipset from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
It has a 6-inch display, a 48 MP camera, PTT functionality and an amplified speaker system.
The IS540.1 aims to be the world’s first ATEX and IECEx Zone 1/21 approved smartphone with widely supported 5G frequency bands and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity.
i.safe says that the Qualcomm QCM6490 IS540.1 offers users a future-proof mobile device with robust 5G and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, advanced camera quality and multimedia capabilities.
The high-performance chipset also produces enhanced AI and compute capabilities that can handle demanding applications without sacrificing power efficiency.
Other special features in the technical equipment are the 48 MP main camera for the highest image quality. The amplified loudspeaker should also guarantee clear and secure communication in noisy industrial environments and not only in PoC/PTT applications.
The updatable, current Android 12 operating system, in conjunction with the high-quality processor, enables fast data processing for the highest requirements in the industrial environment. This can extend to predictive maintenance, communication and security situations.
The IS540.1 also features a 16-pin ISM interface that connects to accessories like the IS-TH2xx.1 (barcode scanner) or the IS-HS2.1 (audio accessory) and also to standards like NFC , Bluetooth offers 5.2 and WLAN 6.
Among other things, the 5G standard facilitates the integration and consolidation of complex workflows, communication and networking between employees, machines and processes.
Maintenance, remote monitoring and evaluation of process data play an increasingly important role in the industrial environment and require real-time and fast data transmission and processing.
In the 5G network, these can be transmitted many times faster than previously in 4G networks. The IS540.1 fully supports this technological advance.
The company also emphasizes the 6-inch Full HD display (1080 x 2160 pixels) with Gorilla Glass/6. generation of the product. They say this creates a more versatile and well-rounded product for demanding situations.
