Are PTP670 and PTP670 ATEX/HAZLOC compatible over the air?

Can I use a PTP670 ATEX/HAZLOC radio in one end of the link having a non certified PTP670 in the opposite site?

Will not be over-the-air or traffic problems? Are they compatible

Thanks in advanced

The PTP 670 ATEX/HAZLOC radio won’t establish a link with a standard PTP 670 radio. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to use ATEX/HAZLOC at both ends of the link, even if only one end is in a hazardous environment.


Thanks a lot Mark, you have saved my day.

Could you please help me to clarify the following two related questions?

  • Is it necessary to use some type of special coaxial cable and N connectors for the connection between the connectorized PTP670 ATEX/HAZLOC radio and an external antenna? Or maybe I can use the typicall coax cable generated by LINKPlanner? RDN5785 - 3M (9.8FT) SUPERFLEX RF LOW LOSS JUMPER CABLE

  • The connectorized PTP670 ATEX/HAZLOC radio must used ATEX certified antennas as well? or typical antennas can be used?

Thanks in advanced

Hi Jorge. There are no special ATEX/HAZLOC restrictions on RF cables and external antennas. You can use the typical cables and antennas recommended by LINKPlanner.
