i.safe MOBILE presents Android tablet for robust use in hazardous areas

i.safe MOBILE, a developer of mobile communication devices in the hazardous zone 1/21, has announced the IS930.1. The IS930.1 combines the indestructible robustness of an IP-certified tablet with ATEX and IECEx approvals for safe use in hazardous environments.

It can be used in the oil, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food industries as well as in mining, public utilities, municipalities and energy suppliers, among others. The IS930.1 comes with an 8" large, capacitive and low-reflection screen made of RugDisplay glass with a maximum resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, which is easy to read even in direct sunlight.



The tablet is powered by Qualcomm's 2.2 GHz octa-core processor, which is backed up by an 8,400 mAh rechargeable battery that provides ample power even during long periods of use. The device runs on Android 9 and can be updated to the latest Android version without any problems. Support for the LTE band and the current WiFi standards ensures fast internet connections. The robust tablet can also be controlled via Bluetooth 5.0 or NFC. The  IS930.1 can easily connect to Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices of today and tomorrow. The IS930.1 has  4 GB RAM and  64 GB (of which 54 GB are available) internal memory, which can be expanded by a further 128 GB via microSD.

Explosion-proof and rugged

The IS930.1 is IP68-rated and therefore resistant to dust, microparticles, water (up to 1 hour at a depth of 2 metres), shocks and temperatures between -20 °C and +60 °C. The tablet has an extremely robust polycarbonate plastic frame with rounded corners. The LTE module integrated in the new IS930.1 allows circuit diagrams, order forms or spare parts orders to be opened quickly and reliably. In addition, pictures and videos taken with the 13 MP main camera or the 5 MP front camera can be easily sent to the head office or the customer. Various sensors for location, acceleration, gravity, gyroscope, ambient light, humidity, temperature and air pressure as well as the magnetic sensor complete the equipment package.

Despite its robust housing, the IS930.1 offers almost the same dimensions (237 x 156 x 22 mm) as a regular tablet and is easy to use. The weight of 890 grams gives the device the necessary stability. The display of the IS930.1 can also be operated with gloves.

The new tablet can process 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/e/k/r/h on WLAN standards. For data acquisition, the ergonomically placed NFC reader and the rear camera with an additional app (e.g. Mobxscan) are available. GPS (GPS, A-GPS, Glonass, A-Glonass, Beidou, Galileo) is integrated for positioning and smooth route guidance. The IS930.1 is Push-to-Talk (PTT)-Ready and has a sole operator protection function (third party application required).

Scope of delivery and availability

The IS930.1 is supplied with the USB cable i.safe PROTECTOR, charger, magnetic charging cable i.safe PROTECTOR, QuickStart Guide and safety instructions. The IS930.1 is available at leading retailers. The following accessories are available as options: car cradle, desktop charging station, display protection foil headset, hand strap and leather case in black/yellow.
