Telit GE864-QUAD Atex modules, available through GLYN High-Tech Distribution , are the extra-rugged addition to the GE864 product family incorporating quad-band functionality, RoHS compliance, as well as featuring low power consumption.
THe GE864-QUAD Atex module had been designed for critical applications working in explosive environments and its architectural and engineering specifications follow the strict requirements of the ATEX directive. For example, this means that every critical component in the whole production cycle of the module is traceable and features specific ATEX rates.
The highest level of intrinsic safety (ia) for these modules makes their use suitable in the most critical environments (Group II, Category 1), and allows its integration into equipment to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres and/or in apparatus electrically connected to others located in such atmospheres.
The Ball-Grid-Array (BGA) package provides for a very low profile in the integrated solution while at the same time enhancing the performance of mechanical resistance to shock and vibration increasing the safety of these applications. Since cost is a key element for all the applications, the elimination of connectors afforded by the BGA concept also brings down the solution cost compared to conventional mounting methods.
With a low profile design, extended temperature range, ESD and EMC compliance, GE864-QUAD Atex modules are the ideal and complete hardware platform for all atex m2m markets, both OEM and aftermarket.
All Telit modules support Over-the-Air firmware update by means Premium FOTA Management. By embedding RedBend's vCurrent® agent, a proven and battle-tested technology powering hundreds of millions of cellular handsets world-wide Telit is able to update its products by transmitting only a delta file, which represents the difference between one firmware version and another.
As a part of Telit's corporate policy of environmental protection, all products comply to the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive of the European Union (EU Directive 2002/95/EG).
