Intrinsically Safe Wireless Transceiver

Billed as an entirely new way to collect analog, digital and temperature information in hazardous areas, the DX99 Battery-Powered Node combines three technologies in a single housing: battery-based power supply, robust wireless technology, and intrinsically safe operation.

By moving the intrinsically safe power supply from the control room to the wireless transceiver, the DX99 is designed to reduce the cost and complexity associated with traditional explosion-proof and intrinsically safe methods of sensing within hazardous areas. The unit uses a liquid lithium battery to produce an intrinsically safe power source for the transceiver and an external third-party sensor. When combined with low-power consumption sampling electronics, the standalone unit can operate for up to 10 years on a single battery, says the vendor. The DX99 wireless technology was designed to transmit and receive at up to 3 miles.
