Intrinsically Safe Cell Phones, PDAs and Laptops for Work in Explosion-Hazardous Areas by ecom instruments Inc., a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 31, 2011) - Industrial Info will host special guest ecom instruments Inc. (Houston, Texas) as part of this week's "Industry Today" webcast. Ecom is a certified manufacturer of intrinsically safe communications and mobile devices for use in explosion-protected areas. Mobile products such as laptops, PDAs, cell phones, radios, measuring and calibration equipment, and flashlights have become an integral part of daily operations for almost every industrial plant. Through the development of intrinsically safe equipment for use in Ex-classified areas, ecom instruments has dramatically shaped this sector for the past 25 years. The company's devices are designed and engineered to meet the most stringent demands of the oil & gas and petrochemical industries, where environmental and safety requirements and specialized certifications are the most critical.

Ecom just launched its first intrinsically safe Class I, Division 1 and ATEX Zone 1-certified GSM cell phone. The core model of this OEM solution offered by ecom on which its Ex-Handy 07 is based was recently recognized as achieving the Guinness World Record, after surviving a 25-meter drop onto concrete, after which it still functioned perfectly. These phones are also certified to IP 67 standard, which means that the unit can be fully submerged in water depths up to one meter for 30 minutes with no impact to performance.

Within ecom's intrinsically safe product range, you will find almost every mobile device for your daily work in hazardous areas in ecom's four core product groups: Mobile Computing, Communication, Measurement and Calibration, and Portable Lighting. These products ensure worldwide certifications, ranging from global IECEx, European ATEX to the North American NEC approvals.

Join Gerald D'Entramont, sales manager of North America for ecom instruments Inc., along with the host of "Industry Today," to learn more about the products made specifically for hazardous environments, allowing you to work safely and effectively in extreme and harsh conditions.
