Pepperl+Fuchs, a global manufacturer of mobile devices for hazardous areas, introduced the Ex-Cover 6 Pro D2. This solution is for workers in Class I, Division 2 areas. The Ex-Cover 6 Pro D2 was built on the strengths of the Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro and is certified for use in potentially volatile settings. It’s designed to help those in industries such as oil and gas and chemical to work faster and more efficiently, while also staying safe, it says. The product offers the durability that frontline workers need, with integrated features such as Samsung Knox customization and management capabilities, push-to-talk, barcode scanning and more, to assist in a streamlined workflow. The company says the Ex-Cover 6 Pro D2 is durable and challenges the status quo of what a smartphone built for industry needs to be. “It’s specifically designed for hazardous work environments where collaboration, productivity, data security and employee safety are paramount,” it notes. The device’s degree of production ensures it can handle dust, dirt, sand and water, as well as withstand a drop of up to 1.5 meters. It’s reliable in humidity, extreme altitudes and other severe environmental conditions.
