Fully certified for hazardous areas
The iWAP XN3 comes complete with all the certification needed for installation in ATEX, IECEx, and North American hazardous areas. You don’t need additional certification, no matter which wireless technology you choose.
Your choice of wireless technology
The iWAP XN3 is a truly universal system – you choose whichever wireless technology you like, from any vendor. That includes Wi-Fi access points, UHF RFID readers, LTE routers, and IoT gateways with technology like LoRa, WiHART, and ISA100.
Use standard, non-certified antennas
iWAP XN3 close up antennasThe iWAP XN3 includes our leading iSOLATE technology, providing intrinsically safe RF outputs with standard N-type connectors. That means you can use non-certified simple apparatus antennas, giving you more choice, optimal performance, and a lower budget spend.
It also means you can easily connect or disconnect antennas by hand, with no need for special tools, and you don’t need to power down the unit or get a hot work permit either.
If you’re not sure what simple apparatus antennas are, we’re happy to assist. Every antenna in our iANT2xx range has already been evaluated by our engineers and meets all the requirements for simple apparatus.
Effective use of space
The iWAP XN3’s internal chassis packs lots of functionality into a compact space. It’s available in four standard sizes to give you the most space-saving solution that meets your technical needs. Our engineers will review the wireless technology you’ve chosen, alongside your operational requirements, to recommend the most effective size for your application.
For OEM customers and particular use cases requiring non-standard sizes, contact us to discuss your requirements.
Easy installation and low maintenance
Weighing in at around 20kg (depending on your chosen internal wireless technology), the iWAP XN3 is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre in a variety of locations. With integrated mounting flanges, it’s simple to install on flat surfaces. A pole mount bracket is also available.
iWAP XN3 junction boxThe iWAP XN3’s external Ex ec junction box puts practicality are the forefront, allowing the use of simple Ex e or NPT glands. It contains all the connectors you’ll need for your required specification, such as Ethernet RJ45 terminals, console ports, mains power, and fibre options.
The iWAP XN3’s enclosure is high integrity, tightly sealed with minimal atmospheric movement. That means you don’t have to carry out routine nR maintenance testing.
The iWAP XN3 has an innovative extruded body with fins that act as heat sinks, reducing the internal temperature of the enclosure, and the white epoxy powder coating also minimises the impact of solar loading when the enclosure is in direct sunlight. These make the iWAP XN3 a suitable way to deploy wireless technologies in high ambient temperatures.iWAP XN3 enclosure design
Made from marine-grade aluminium and finished with a durable epoxy powder coating, the iWAP XN3 is designed for outdoor installation in harsh industrial environments. It’s IP66 and NEMA 4 rated too, able to withstand exposure to the elements.
