Robustness and sleek design

The RFID Handheld resembles a standard smartphone due to its slim dimensions and 5.0″ display. Thanks to the IP67 protection class, it easily withstands falls from a height of 1.2 meters and temperature environments of -20 °C to +60 °C.

Application example: Mining industry

Thanks to the ATEX Class II certification, the C2 ATEX is can withstand high dust concentrations and rockfalls in mining environments without any problems. The additionally integrated IP67 protection class provides double protection against splash water and dust particles.

The RFID handheld can be used underground with the integrated GPS function as a reliable positioning device. Thanks to the integrated 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, rock types and formations can be documented photographically.

The retrievability of rocks can be guaranteed by means of robust transponders. The C2 ATEX can reliably identify and assign these using the RFID HF/NFC function. The communication between the underground workers and the above-ground employees can take place immediately using the 4G LTE and WLAN function.
