The company carrys the Aegex10 Intrinsically Safe tablet, a Windows 10 enterprise tablet that is globally certified for use in the most explosive hazardous locations worldwide. The Aegex device is the first of its kind to run the Windows 10 operating system and be certified for use in UL 913 Class 1 Division 1 hazardous locations in the U.S., CSA 22.2 in Canada, and ATEX and IECEx Zone 1 throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.

With cloud connectivity and Microsoft Windows 10 enterprise applications, Aegex tablets allow personnel in hazardous locations to communicate instantaneously with the rest of their organizations, improving efficiency and productivity. Aegex tablets are built on a uniform platform and Intel architecture and are customizable for diverse workforce needs.
