EADS Defence & Security launched the new THR9 Ex TETRA Radio which combines certification for operation in explosion-prone areas with user friendliness, a robust design and advanced features to enhance user safety.
With IP65 classification and ATEX/IEC certification both for gas and dust, the THR9 Ex has the best protection against physical and environmental exposure, providing safe and reliable communication in circumstances when intrinsically safe products are mandatory. It is suitable for use in explosion prone areas and in places where inflammable substances are produced, processed, transported or stored: oil and gas platforms, petrochemical and steel industries, refineries, rigs, and harbors. The THR9 Ex also meets the requirements of fire brigades for ATEX/IEC certified equipment when working in hazardous circumstances.
The first frequency band to be supported is 380 - 430 MHz, and could be followed by other frequency bands based on market demand. The THR9 Ex offers a choice of more than 20 user interface languages. A large range of ATEX/IEC certified accessories are available.
