Explosion-Proof RFID Tag


The ATEX Directive/IECEx Scheme and related standards like EN (IEC) 60079 and ISO 80079 define the mandatory lifetime tracking, for the total lifetime of one installation being installed in a possible hazardous area is EX proof. Ex proof means each installation has to be identified.

ExRFID SA1 tag makes it happen in a cost effective way for longterm operation.

  • Passive RFID tag
  • Simple apparatus according to IEC 60079-14
  • Applicable hazardous area classification
    Zone 1 IIC T6 / Zone 21 IIIC 85°C an ambient temperature Tamb 40°C
    Zone 1 IIC T5 / Zone 21 IIIC 100°C at an ambient temperature Tamb 60°C


The ExRFID SA1 has to be installed on each device operated in possible hazardous areas, you need to read it out and then in a database (sheets of maintainance, repair and inspections) it has to managed. Possible solution: tablet, smart phone, RFID reader, and EPDS software
