i.safe MOBILE presents the IS540.1 explosion-proof 5G smartphone for highly complex industrial scenarios


i.safe MOBILE has introduced the IS540.1 smartphone. The IS540.1 is claimed by the company to be the world's first ATEX and IECEx Zone 1/21 approved smartphone with widely supported 5G frequency bands and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity.

The Qualcomm QCM6490 gives IS540.1 users a future-proof mobile device with robust 5G and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, advanced camera quality and multimedia capabilities. The high-performance chipset has powerful AI and compute capabilities that can process demanding applications without compromising power efficiency.

Further special features in the technical equipment are the 48 MP main camera for highest image quality. The amplified loudspeaker is claimed to guarantee clear and secure communication even in noisy industrial environments – not only in PoC/PTT applications. 

The updatable, up-to-date operating system Android 12 guarantees – in conjunction with the high-quality processor –  fast data processing for the most demanding requirements in the industrial environment (predictive maintenance, communication, security). The IS540.1 scores with its 16-pin ISM interface, which offers connection to accessories such as the IS-TH2xx.1 (barcode scanner) or the IS-HS2.1 (audio accessories) and also with standards such as NFC, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6. 
5G smartphone for use in potentially explosive hazardous atmospheres

The new IS540.1 from i.safe MOBILE supports the 5G standard, which is used, for example, in company-internal campus networks (stand-alone networks). Among other things, the 5G standard facilitates the integration and consolidation of complex workflows, communication and networking between employees, machines and processes.

Maintenance, remote monitoring and the evaluation of process data are playing an increasingly important role in the industrial environment and require prompt, fast data transmission and processing. In the 5G network, these can be transmitted multiple times faster than what was previously available on 4G networks. The IS540.1 fully supports this technological advance.

Technical highlights 

The IS540.1 meets the highest technical requirements for potentially hazardous industrial areas.

The technical highlights of the IS540.1 include:

  • The powerful Qualcomm QCM6490 8-core processor 
  • A 6-inch Full HD display (1080 x 2160 pixels) with Gorilla Glass/6th generation 
  • The 48 MP Camera / 5 MP front camera
  • Android 12 
  • Amplified speakers 
  • Extensive frequency bands
  • 4400 mAh battery (replaceable)
  • 16-pin ISM interface (e.g. for PoC/PTT)
  • Programmable side button (e.g. for PoC/PTT)
  • Programmable red button (e.g. for lone worker protection/SOS)

The IS540.1 will be available soon.
