Can I use AP iw3702 on ATEX Ex Zone 1 or 2 classifed areas? if not, which one is recommended?
@warusso37 : I dont think that is recommend ( AP iw3702 ) . I would recommend Cisco Aironet 1552 Series.
Thank you, inderseeps, but Cisco has announce in 22 jan 2020 the end-of-life of Aironet 1552 (see https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/aironet-1550-series/eos-eol-notice-c51-742532.html).
I found iw6300, which certainly is a solution, but too expensive. iw 3702 is 1/3 the price, but not sure if it is ATEX ex.
IW6300 is the best in the class and Wave 2, if not you can consider any Cisco AP hosted inside a ATEX certified enclosure. I highly recommend extronics.
APs for ATEX environment is not something to be taken lightly.
Contact Cisco Sales team and get it down in writing, with Cisco logo and Cisco email reply to boot, as proof. If things go wrong, there is an official email to back you up.
The https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/wireless/industrial-wireless-6300-series/index.html is the successor to the 1552H and has per the data sheet also "EN 60079-0, -15 ATEX certificate (Class l, Zone 2, Gc/IIC)" certification:
