Mobexx and Aegex sign European Distribution Agreement

Mobexx, a specialist distributor of rugged, ultra-rugged and ATEX mobile computers and Aegex, a manufacturer of Intrinsically Safe Tablet PCs, have announced a European Distribution Agreement.

Aegex are set to revolutionise the enterprise market for ATEX and IECEx Windows Tablet PCs with the new Zone 1 certified Intrinsically Safe products.

Purpose-built for hazardous location environments such as oil and gas operations, Aegex tablets will be universally certified for UL C1D1, ISA C1D2, ATEX Zone 1, and IECEx Zone 1 HazLoc areas. Unlike traditional communications devices that carry a risk of igniting a spark, the 10.1-inch Aegex tablets can be deployed in multiple zones of hazardous locations in the oil and gas industry, where high concentrations of flammable gases, vapours or dusts are present.

“We are excited about the opportunities that this partnership with Aegex brings to the European market. These new products open up the enterprise where there are Zone 1 requirements, and being Windows 10 enables easy integration into corporate systems” said Mark Dale-Lace, Director of Mobexx. “The hazardous environment industries, including oil and gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and mining, have long awaited the release of an intrinsically safe tablet capable of running enterprise-grade engineering and business applications, as well as fit-for-purpose field operator applications.”

The Aegex 10 Intrinsically Safe tablet is customizable for 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 tablets for their particular workforce needs.

The Aegex 10 Intrinsically Safe tablet is part of a uniform platform that forms an operation-wide mobile communications solution for workforces in hazardous locations.

The rugged 10.1” IS Windows tablets will commence shipping January 2016.
