The Smart-Ex 02 will also be the first device certified for Zone 1/21 and Div. 1 to meet Google's Android Enterprise Recommended (AER) validation. The AER validation ensures deployment and management of mobile solutions through hardware, OS support and regular security patches. The worldwide support of Pepperl+Fuchs also ensures safe operations. Users also benefit from the collaboration with ecom's own system engineers and development teams, who can advise and support with changing software requirements. Depending on requirements, the Smart-Ex 02 can be supplemented with numerous additional, coordinated and optimized peripheral devices from ecom such as headsets, microphones, video cameras, scanners or Bluetooth beacons and smartwatches.
With its new product line "Digital Products and Services", ecom offers a solution that combines automated staging, mobile device management and device analytics, and can be used as a full-fledged enterprise mobility management system if desired. The Smart-Ex 02, as well as all other mobile devices from ecom, can leave production at the customer's request with the necessary configuration secured in a container – such as security settings, application or wireless setup.
On request, device diagnostics and device analytics can collect real-time operating data and error analyses of the mobile devices, permanently monitoring their condition and remedying malfunctions preventively or directly. The devices can be managed via the ecom online platform and updated at any time during operation
