Low Power High Safety: Unveiling ATEX, IECEx & HAZLOC LoRaWAN Trackers and Beacons for High-Risk Environments

Press Release – Paris, France – 18th September 2023

In the demanding world of industries that grapple with volatile substances, there’s no compromise on safety and operational proficiency. Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Abeeway’s cutting-edge ATEX & IECEx-certified multi-technology trackers and beacons, tailor-made for the high-stakes environments of sectors like mining, oil & gas, chemicals, the military, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.

Why Do These Certifications Matter?

When dealing with hazardous environments,  where every decision can make the difference between routine operations and potential disaster, ATEX & IECEx-certified devices are game-changing for businesses.

Certifications like ATEX   are not mere labels but lifelines, and global safety benchmarks. Knowledge of such certifications is critical for businesses aiming to navigate the challenging waters of compliance and safety standards. They are indicative of a device’s ability to safely operate amidst explosive atmospheres, a commonplace in sectors such as:

  • Oil & Gas: Picture an offshore drilling rig, where flammable gases are the norm. An ATEX-certified tracker ensures that equipment is monitored with precision without becoming an ignition source.
  • Mining: In underground tunnels, the release of methane and other combustible gases can pose significant threats. Our trackers provide vital location information, mitigating risks.
  • Chemical Plants: With the constant handling of volatile substances, knowing the exact location of containers and ensuring safe storage becomes paramount.
  • Cosmetics & Pharmaceuticals: Even in these seemingly benign sectors, the presence of alcohol or other flammable solvents necessitates explosion-proof equipment.

Beyond these, the vast applications in the military and other high-risk sectors underscore the universal need and acceptance of such certifications. 

Abeeway’s Innovative Trackers and Beacons for High-Stakes Industries

Abeeway’s devices aren’t just about compliance; they’re about transformation. They allow precision in tracking: pinpointing monitoring of personnel, machinery, and volatile materials, eliminating guesswork and amplifying safety. They ensure operational mastery: equipped with GPS/WiFi/BLE technology and backed by LoRaWAN connectivity, our IoT devices ensure that workflow optimization isn’t just a buzzword but a tangible reality. Finally, they enable innovation with durability: with an IP67 rating, our devices stand resilient against dust and water, reinforcing trust in the most challenging terrains.

Designed specifically for high-risk scenarios, Abeeway devices are the embodiment of safety, precision, and innovation. Here are Abeeway’s trailblazing offerings:
