Aegex Will Offer Intrinsically Safe Tablets for Hazardous Locations in Middle East and Africa
ATLANTA, GA—(Marketwired - August 30, 2015) - Aegex Technologies, LLC, developer of intrinsically safe mobility solutions, has opened an office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to provide Windows 10 universally certified industrial tablets for hazardous locations in the Middle East and Africa.
Aegex 10.1-inch tablets are to be certified intrinsically safe for ATEX Zone 1, IECEx Zone 1 and C1D1, as well as enterprise-class rugged, for global use in the world’s most explosive environments. Oil and gas, petrochemical, public safety and utilities markets are common sites of hazardous location environments, where standard telecommunications equipment cannot be used because it presents an explosion risk. Aegex’s intrinsically safe devices, which are incapable of producing a spark sufficient to ignite an explosion, will be offered through the new Dubai office to HazLoc companies in the region, facilitating full IoT connectivity for improved efficiency and productivity.
“Dubai is an ideal center for Aegex to reach out to its customers who have hazardous location operations in the Middle East and Africa,” said Timothy Cox, Aegex’s MEA regional sales director. “Especially with the concentration of oil and gas industries in this region, Aegex intrinsically safe devices and solutions will undoubtedly become indispensable for companies operating HazLoc environments here.”
The Aegex 10 Intrinsically Safe, Non-Incendive and Enterprise Class tablets are fully synchronisable with a business’s existing IoT and are customisable for use by any team member in a hazardous location operation, from personnel in the most explosive zones to their managers who are off-site. In addition to running enterprise programs such as Microsoft Office and Outlook, customers can select task-specific applications and accessories from the Aegex portfolio to tailor the tablet for their particular workforce needs. The Aegex solution provides seamless, cloud-based connectivity for all facets of a hazardous location operation.
The Dubai office will provide a regional focus point for Aegex in the Middle East and Africa. Mr. Cox, who has 18 years of experience in the mobile workforce industry throughout the MEA region, will head up the new office located at:
Jebel Ali Freezone
Jafza View 18/19
United Arab Emirates
Tel: +971 4 813 7820
Mr. Cox is inviting potential distributors to contact him for demonstration devices and further information.
