New RX series antenna coupler
February 2016, Industrial Computer Hardware


Solexy Wireless has released the new RX series antenna coupler, which makes it easier to deploy wireless products in hazardous areas. This unique design is the only barrier design that is explosion-proof with an internal IS barrier, and allows the use of a standard passive antenna or a cable run to a remote antenna. No glands and no space inside the housing required. This barrier is mounted into the enclosure wall, providing the flame proof protection.

The Solexy RX series explosion-proof and intrinsically safe RF barrier is an integrated protection device that facilitates passive antenna installation in hazardous areas making the signal intrinsically safe. The patented device features a barrier circuit which protects the antenna connection and field cabling from faults or voltage and current high enough to cause a spark ignition. The RX circuit is encapsulated and housed in an explosion-proof stainless steel body and is designed to be used with a listed enclosure for hazardous areas. The RX offers new advantages over the legacy AX series: an engineered co-planar circuit design, and tuned to tighter frequency ranges reduces in insertion loss as much as 50% or more. The longer housing keeps the antenna radiation pattern away from the case to allow for a more dependable signal. The RX series also has new ratings for IECEx and ATEX. It is now approved as an Apparatus, which will cut down on costly Notified Body evaluations. The new RX series has a list of installation parameters, which when followed allow use without the requirement for additional evaluations.
