Next-Gen ATEX Wi-Fi Access Point
The Wireless X is nothing but a revolution within Wi-Fi in hazardous areas. Based on 15 years of experience with Wi-Fi and hazardous areas, BARTEC PIXAVI has re-designed Wi-Fi offering by creating the smallest, lightest and highest performing Wi-Fi access point for zone 1 ever created. Based on both clever engineering, material science and state of the art wireless infrastructure, we are now eliminating the need for bulky and heavy enclosures and antennas. Introducing the smart, user friendly, lightweight and circular Wireless X!
The new, compact design, with a new and smart combination of metal and plastic material technology has a several benefits. You do not need external antennas. This means you can save cost of the antenna, cable and glands. By using the latest and greatest Wi-Fi access points from industry leaders such as Cisco, we were able to both offer the newest and best Wi-Fi technology, in a more compact form factor. Having the latest Wireless technology ensures reliable operation as well as coverage, security and network speed. The Wireless X can be used for both Wi-Fi, WirelessHART, Bluetooth, ISA 100 as well as 2G/3G/4G mobile networks. The Wireless X is available in both POE and Fiber with integrated Dual Band antennas and MIMO technology, depending on the technology you choose inside the device.
Based on the new Cisco 3700 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual band access point, the Wireless X noes not need any external antennas, glands or cables. By using the internal antennas, combined with years of experience creating miniature EX products, we have managed to create a smarter solution. The Wireless X has clever use of highest grade polycarbonates in order to remove the need for external antennas. The new and smart circular design ensures that the product is well within the requirements for the EX certification. With a rigid stainless steel or aluminum base, the Wireless X is IP68 and IECEx and ATEX Zone 1 compliant. The result is a staggering reduction of 1/2 installation time, 1/8th of the weight and 1/4th of the size compared to a EX-d based enclosure solution with external antennas. This allows the users to create Wi-Fi in any hazardous location at a fraction of the cost compared with legacy solutions. The software is Ciscos own, making it plug and play for most networks. The Cisco Wi-Fi portfolio is industry leading and known amongst most IT management organizations.

Smart mounting bracket
The innovative mounting bracket makes it easy to install the access point by just one person. The bracket can be mounted at the installation location prior to the arrival of the access point, and when you have the connections terminated (POE or Fiber with local power) in the EX-e chamber, you can easily install the Wireless X without any additional tools. The standard dimensions, and “turn and click” lockable fastening mechanism makes sure the device can be fitted to any flat surface. This makes the bi-annual inspection of EX-e chamber easy, saving as much as 50 % of the time and effort needed for inspections. Mounting options for pole mounting also available on request. The mounting kit includes smart dome stand box and safety wires.
