UK-based AnTech has announced a new ‘intrinsically safe’ data transmitter for use in hazardous environments. AnTech’s RED-I Data Logging System uses an infra-red ‘eye’ to transmit data in hazardous zones without external wiring for power or data transmission.
The autonomous battery powered unit is ATEX certified for Zone 1 & 2 Hazardous areas. The RED-I data logging system allows operators to collect stored data using a handheld computer without the need to physically connect to the RED-I unit. This is achieved by accessing and transmitting data via an infrared communications port housed in an intrinsically safe handheld computer. Data can be reviewed and then transferred to a spreadsheet using either an infra-red link or a serial cable.
