ATEX & IECEx certifications


logo atex iec iecex

 STid has developed a certified RFID reader range to meet the two key industry requirements - security and reliability.

Our solutions are compliant with all the international standards of the market: ATEX (EN60079) & IECEx certifications; European Directives (99/92/EC and 94/9/EC). They are well suited for all your people identification applications in explosive and isolated environments.

The T-ATX handled terminal comes with the highest number of global approvals for use in such areas - from ATEX through IECEx to NEC & Mining (MSHA).

Identification high performances

The ATEX terminal is designed for short-range reading and writing applications (up to 10 cm / 3.94’’) for fast, simple and selective secure contactless identification. It is designed for fast, accurate and reliable data collection, whether it is a barcode reading, a short-range RFID reading or an intensive RFID inventory.


Build on mobility

Innovative power management and lithium-ion technology of the batteries ensure extremely long operating times of at least 10 hours - sufficient for a full workday. To eliminate confusion between standard and intrinsically safe batteries, we have ensured by mechanical means, that only intrinsically safe batteries can be used.



  • The world‘s only PDA with global
    explosion protection & mining approval
  • Long service life due to ruggedness
    and wear-resistance
  • State-of-the-art technology with a flexible,
    modular head system

Multi technos

Upgradable configuration 
to meet all your needs

Using a unique modular design, the T-ATX can be specifically configured to the customer‘s requirements by selecting different head modules. 
When requirements change, the head module on the unit can be replaced by another one. In addition to a traditional 1D Barcode Laser Scanner with high motion tolerance as well as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology with the main frequency ranges (LF, HF or UHF), an intrinsically safe version of a 2D Multi-Range Barcode Imager is now available for the first time.

and reliability

Due to its rugged construction, the terminal is ideally suited for mobile applications requiring compact design without compromising on technology. It was developed with consideration for all the adversities of everyday work of its users. Extreme weather conditions or drops from distances of up to 1.2 m (4 ft) are no problem thanks to its special design as well as gas, water and dust certification.
