World’s first 5G smartphone for hazardous areas

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The IS540.1 (photo) is said to be the world’s first 5G smartphone for ATEX and IECEx zone 1/21. The intrinsically safe mobile device, which was also developed for use in 5G campus networks, offers extensive deployment scenarios ranging from predictive maintenance, augmented reality (AR) applications, control and cooperation of production robots and production lines, management of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), autonomous transport robots, remote monitoring and support to PTT video calls in the system area to prevent plant failures. The high-performance Qualcomm QCM6490 chipset, a large 6-in. display, 48-MP main camera, and standards such as Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC complete the Android 12 smartphone’s extensive feature package. — Mobile GmbH, Lauda-Koenigshofen, Germany
