Rajant offers safe kinetic mesh wireless radio

Rajant, the pioneer of mobile wireless mesh network technology, now offers a C1D2 intrinsically safe wireless radio option for industries operating in hazardous environments, the company said.

The new ME4-2450R-C1D2 creates opportunities for a variety of industries — including petrochemical, manufacturing, utilities, aboveground mining, and oil and gas — to implement Rajant´s Kinetic Mesh® wireless network as a single streamlined communications platform, providing mobile connectivity from anywhere on the operations site and enabling automation.

To meet stringent hazardous location requirements, the ME4-2450R-C1D2 junction box and cable assembly provide a convenient method for field-terminating power and Ethernet connections.

While networking and communications technologies advance at a rapid pace and now incorporate Internet of Things (IoT) devices and autonomous applications, this progress often could not be leveraged in hazardous locations because of the risk associated with operating in areas like offshore drilling rigs, refineries and chemical plants.

As a result, companies were forced to use a combination of different technologies or networks for different environments or locations, adding cost and complexity, and reducing efficiency. The new ME4-2450R-C1D2 radio allows companies in all industries and environments to simplify their communications process with a single mobile networking technology that supports Kinetic Mesh® wireless backhaul and Wi-Fi access concurrently.
