Wifi AP suggestion for classified area

Hello, I am looking for a Wifi repeater for the oil and gas industry, it must be in an outdoor area with the potential presence of flammable gases, so it must be intrinsically safe, what options does cambium have?

We have implemented an onpremise CnMaestro version 3.0.0-r34, if it can be linked it would be a plus.

Are you looking for ATEX certified APs? or non ATEX certified APs?
if you can share me your region/country, I’ll arrange the Regional Technical Manager to talk more about our Enterprise Wi-Fi and FWA solutions.

Certified APs, I am located in Colombia

please look at our XE3-4TN:

it is not ATEX certified but it is IP67, metal enclosure, connectorized, -40 to 65C operating temperature. It also has three radios. The 6GHz band is not allowed yet outdoors in FCC and IC regions so currently you would have one 2x2 2.4G radio + one 2x2 5G radio and a third radio that is 4x4 5G radio.

Intrinsically safe WiFi APs are very rare in the market.

To meet the ATEX requirement, you may house the WiFi AP inside a ATEX certified enclosure.

I suggest you may contact Extronics as this company provides ATEX certified enclosures with antennas to house the WiFi APs.
