The iWAP107 Zone 1 Hazardous Area Wireless Enclosure System from Extronics Ltd.

The iWAP107 system from Extronics is not just an enclosure but a completely certified system that includes the our innovative iSOLATE intellectual property.

The iWAP107 allows economical wireless networking in hazardous locations.

  • Simple to install and maintain
  • Developed to house the wireless technology of users’ choice, from any vendor
  • Intrinsically safe RF outputs
  • U.S. and Canada Class I Div 1or Zone 1 and 21 certified
  • ATEX and IECEx Zone 1 and 21 certified

Use Any Wireless Technology

Users can select the new 802.11AC access points from market leaders, such as Siemens, Aruba, Cisco, and more—and leverage their MIMO functionality for high-performance Wi-Fi, even in metallic process surroundings.

Users can also select from an array of other wireless technologies, like LTE routers, UHF RFID readers, and IoT gateways, such as WiHART, LoRa, or ISA100.

Easy Installation

Installation and maintenance can be done easily and more quickly as well. Users can make use of standard tools—the iSOLATE-CT Connector Transits and internal iSOLATE501 RF isolator prevent the requirement for barrier glands to install antennas. In addition, the antennas can be disconnected and connected live with minimal downtime.

The iWAP107 has been developed to withstand the most hazardous conditions and is highly robust, with IP66 ingress protection. While it is important that equipment is long-lasting, that does not mean it should take up excess space or be it difficult to install. The internal design of the iWAP107 packs plenty of functionality into a small space, with external outer dimensions of just 415 x 315 x 250 mm. The iWAP107 weighs in at around 30 kg for an aluminum option, and it can be easily maneuvered for installation throughout a range of locations.

Support and Advice

The Extronics team is available to help users on every step of their wireless journey. They have sales engineers ready to advise users prior to making a purchase, an experienced team to construct users’ iWAP107 according to their needed specification, and a team of after-sales technical support to answer any doubts that users might have.

The iWAP107 is backed up by the normal Extronics warranty. Extronics also provides an extended warranty option, for up to 5 years’ coverage of users’ iWAP107.

Intrinsically Safe Outputs

With the help of intrinsically safe RF outputs and explosion-proof N-type antenna connections from Extronics’ iSOLATE technology, users can select from an extensive range of normal easy apparatus antennas.

Users can get better reliability, enhanced coverage, and lower cost without the requirement for certification, and still fully conform to all hazardous area equipment regulations.

Check Out the iWAP107 On Site at Texmark Chemicals

The access point enclosures of Extronics’ iWAP107 have been deployed on site at Texmark Chemicals, Inc. as part of a wireless infrastructure with Aruba access points as well as HPE Edgeline edge computing devices linked to I/O.

Extronics is thrilled to know that the technology is allowing Texmark to make the Refinery of the Future and simplify their processes.
