Ecom – Mobile Phones, Smartphones & Tablets (Hazardous Area Zone 1 & Zone 2 ATEX)
Ecom are world-leading manufacturers of hazardous area mobile communications and computing solutions – the Ecom range includes mobile phones, smartphones, laptops, tablet computers, PDAs and bar-code scanners with ATEX and IECEx certification.
Working in hazardous areas, there are many naturally occurring issues and potentially dangerous environments to work with and around – potentially explosive gas, vapour and dust atmospheres pose significant risk to people and plant working in classified hazardous area locations. Communication is vital not just for improving efficiency but also staying in contact with colleagues and reporting problems remotely.
Regular communications equipment, such as mobile phones, cannot be used within hazardous areas due to the potential for them to cause a spark or ignite any explosive gases that may be present. Ecom hazardous area certified mobile phones, smartphones, and tablets provie safe communications in Zone 1 and Zone 2.
Ecom are responsible for protecting people, places and equipment in the most challenging of workplaces anywhere in the world.
Typical applications and industries for Ecom hazardous area equipment include the global oil and gas industry, petrochemical plants, mining and underground processes.

Mobile Worker Concept
The mobile worker concept from Ecom encapsulates the concept of hazardous are mobile technology by allowing unrestricted communications between workers working inside and out of hazardous areas.
Mobile worker solutions maximise productivity, ensure data quality, minimise costs and time taken as well as improving decision making. Operational efficiency is improved by sharing information and communicating with others in real time.
Communications and data capture in real time would be un-thinkable in a Zone 1 hazardous area within intrinsically safe communications equipment. With Ecom, the mobile worker concept is reality.
Ecom Smart-Ex 01 Hazardous Area Smartphone
Ecom Smart-Ex 01 is an ATEX/ IECEx certified, ultra rugged, LTE / WiFi / Android enabled hazardous area smartphone. The device has a 4.0“ capacitive multi-touch screen and is a leader in the field of hazardous area mobiles phones.
The screen is manufactured from extreme shock and scratch-resistant Gorilla® Glass 2 and the large display size on this ATEX certified mobile phone coupled with glove touch functionality increases productivity.
The ATEX smartphone also comes with a loud speaker, drop protection, water resistance and a powerful battery – key features that are vital for working within hazardous areas and for the mobile worker.
There are a range of accessories available for the Ecom Smart-Ex 01 to improve productivity further including car charger, leather case, stylus and non-IS stereo headset.
