EX Certified

The RADius 600X high gain transponder is an intrinsically ATEX safe product (category 2) suitable to be installed in hazardous locations where there may be an explosive mixture of flammable gases belonging to gas groups IIB and/or IIA. The transponder can be used in hazardous zones 1 and 2. Temperature class is T4.

Fixed Power

The RADius 600X is powered from a power supply located in a safe (non-hazardous) location and an EX type approved zener barrier is used to limit the delivered energy to the hazardous location to a safe level. The barrier - located in a safe area - will prevent any hazardous voltage or excessive current from reaching the hazardous zone. For long cable runs an alternative approved power solution can be delivered.

Unique ID

The transponders are coded with unique IDs ensuring reliable identification and tracking of vessels in demanding environments. Several interrogators can approach the same transponders, ensuring multi-user capabilities. Up to five transponders can be tracked simultaneously by the interrogator.
