An integrated blocking circuit prevents hazardous energy reaching the antenna if a radio, modem or access point failure occures. It also allows for antenna removal in hazardous areas.
The coupler’s robust design allows for connection to practically any radio and antenna. It is a highly flexible and cost effective solution to hazardous area radio system deployment. The coupler can also be used as a cable bulkhead.
Fitting is approved for hazardous locations and can be installed with a simple wrench.
SHORT CIRCUIT PROTECTION
Includes integrated blocking circuitry.
All required circutry is recessed into fitting and encapsulated against harsh environments
The RX Series is certified Atex, IECEx and for USA&Canada as an apparatus, and can be installed per the conditions of acceptability, without further assessment. North America approval (USA&Canada) includes class & divisions and zones. IECEx certification is issued from an Australian notified body, therefore RX can be installed in Queensland mines.
NO SEALING FITTING REQUIRED
Permits a wide variety of passive antennas to be installed in hazardous areas. Antennas may be removed and/or installed with power on. Perfect for a cable bulkhead connection.
ISOLATED ANTENNA GROUND
Optional antenna ground isolation (RX1..) from housing ground, combined with a capacitive circuit, solves ground loop issues in case of remote mounted antennas and prevents potential ground noise to interfeare with RF signal (patent pending).
