Intrinsically Safe PDA – Ecom i.roc Ci70–Ex


  • The unique modular concept of the i.roc Ci70-Ex combines state of the art technology with a flexible, modular head system for all kinds of data acquisition systems: (LF, HF and UHF RFID with 1D Barcode Laser Scanner and 2D Multi-Range Barcode Imager)
  • The world’s only PDA with global explosion protection approval for ATEX / IECEx Zone 1 and NEC Class I, Division 1, combined in a single device
  • The world’s first Zone 1 and Class 1, Division 1 certified PDA with wide-area network (WWAN 3G UMTS or CDMA)
  • The world’s first Zone 1 and Class 1, Division 1 certified handheld computer with complete WLAN standard (IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n)
  • A large selection of peripherals and accessories make the i.roc Ci70-Ex a comprehensive solution.

The innovative modular concept of the i.roc Ci70 -Ex provides multiple configuration options with state of the art technology for virtually every application in hazardous environments. In addition to ecom‘s unparalleled worldwide service support, customers benefit from the global certifications of this superior product solution.

  • state-of-the-art technology with a flexible, modular head system
  • The world‘s only PDA with global explosion protection & mining approval
  • The world’s first Zone 1 and Class 1, Division 1 certified PDA with wide-area network (WWAN 3G UMTS or CDMA)
  • long service life due to ruggedness and wear-resistance
  • for the Oil- & Gas-, chemical and pharmaceutical industry as well as other sectors
  • freely configurable and adaptable to your requirements
  • a wide range of accessories

The i.roc Ci70 -Ex is the latest development in ecom‘s successful i.roc product range and the first PDA to have been jointly developed in conjunction with Intermec. This makes it a great mobile computer – not least because of its many features that are unique to mobile computing in explosive environments.

It also comes with the highest number of global approvals for use in such areas – from ATEX through IECEx to NEC & Mining (MSHA) – and it is also entirely compatible with all applications developed for the Intermec 70 series, which means that it can be incorporated into existing systems.

Mobile computers for use in explosive environments often constitute a compromise due to the fact that they cannot employ the latest technologies. But ecom and Intermec have combined their development competence to create an intrinsically-safe handheld computer solution that delivers state-of-the-art for use in explosive environments.
