Know-how alliance for mobile solutions in Ex-protection zones

ICS Group and Mobile establish solution partnership

Kelsterbach, September 15, 2021: Supply chain digitizer ICS Group and MOBILE, the specialist for mobile, explosion-proof communication devices, are bundling their know-how in order to provide efficient mobile data management for customers across all sectors.
Along the supply chain there are many areas at risk of explosion (Ex-zones), in which flammable substances, oxygen and ignition sources come together, creating an explosive atmosphere. Explosion hazards exist not only in the chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, coal and steel industry, but can also occur in many other sectors. In these hazardous environments, explosion protection (Ex-protection) is held of the utmost importance when it comes to technical safety. The use of explosion-proof mobile communication devices is a key aspect here.

The German manufacturer MOBILE offers mobile phones, smartphones and tablets for a wide range of requirements in the various hazardous zones. The mobile devices used worldwide comply with national and international standards; and have, among other things, ATEX certification and approval according to IECEX, CSA and EAC. For the various Ex-zones, MOBILE devices guarantee secure communication in potentially explosive environments, where explosive atmospheres consisting of air and flammable substances in the form of gases, vapors, mists or dusts can occur. In addition, MOBILE develops device series for the non-Ex area and thus offers users a universal hardware portfolio for mobile communication.

For the ICS Group (ICS) who automates and digitizes business processes along the supply chain, MOBILE is another important manufacturing partner to serve growing, specific customer requirements. ICS intends to bring its know-how as an internationally experienced system integrator, with its own software development and global full-service expertise, to the newly established partnership.

To complement the real-time data management service, customers receive individual expert consulting, IoT technologies, software applications and labeling solutions from a single source. In addition, the user receives freely scalable managed services over the entire lifecycle of the solution –according to ICS information. These services range from staging & deployment of IT infrastructures, global service desk and remote management to field service and in-house repair.

Rainer Preißendörfer, sales manager at ICS, is looking forward to the added value that the new partnership with MOBILE will bring: “ICS customers have been relying on our hardware, software and services for many years, with which we guarantee highly available processes. The MOBILE end devices complement our product portfolio for highly sensitive industrial environments and, depending on customer needs, are the perfect alternative for mobile, ergonomic work.
