What is ATEX radio?
ATEX radios are designed to protect employees in potentially dangerous oil, gas, mining and chemical environments where atmospheric explosions may occur. The ATEX certification is an EU standard (Appareils destinés à être utilisés en ATmosphères EXplosibles) designed to ensure that electrical equipment including radios and accessories do not provide an ignition source such as a spark that might cause an explosion. These are known as intrinsically safe radios as they meet stringent health and safety rules to protect workers, the facilities, the surrounding population and the wider general environment.
ATEX radios have particular properties to set them apart from standard waterproof and rugged radios. They do not release sufficient electrical or thermal energy under normal conditions to ignite hazardous material such as fuel, fibres, dust and gas.
Each element of the radio including batteries, circuit boards, casing and antennae are designed to be as safe as possible, with shielded connections and anti-static shells.
Hytera's E-pack200 Dual-channel DMR Ad-hoc Portable Repeater
Offering the latest cutting-edge technology in TETRA and DMR forms, the two radios are engineered to operate where safety and reliability are of vital importance.
Hytera offers both DMR and TETRA intrinsically safe two way radios which meet ATEX standards and also comply with IECEx standards, certifying they are explosion-proof radios. Our ATEX radio range includes models that can operate in Zone 0 (or 20), Zone 1 (or 21) and Zone 2 (or 22).
These provide the perfect robust, reliable and intrinsically safe communication device for firefighters and workers in oil and gas, petrochemical, mining and processing and manufacturing industries; such as flour and powder. They are also ideal for jobs involving the use or storage of hazardous liquids or gases at petrol stations, airports, ports and events.

Why Choose Us?
Authoritative IS Certifications
Through the rigorous testing of the globally recognized certification organizations, our radios obtain the IECEx/ATEX certificates, to reduce the risk of accidents, and ensure the safety of users and operators.
Clear and Loud Voice
With a 2W high-power speaker, the audio is louder. Integrated with AI intelligent noise reduction algorithm, automatic gain control (AGC), and other multiple audio technologies, PT890Ex and HP799Ex isolate kinds of noisy backgrounds and address weak sound issues, to make critical voice information clearer and more reliable.
Wider range of operation temperature (in Ex area)
Thanks to new explosion-proof materials and advanced mechanical design, the radios are built to work under temperatures from –25°C to 60°C in explosion-prone areas. With stable and even heat dissipation, the radios are engineered to work in extreme conditions, bringing extra safety and efficiency to everyday work.
Rocksolid & Longlasting Battery
Designed with a high-grade battery protection board and a novel battery lock , our ATEX radios avoid potential sparks even dropped accidentally, and ensures the safe use of the battery in hazardous circumstances. The standard 2150 mAh battery, together with the cutting-edge low power consumption technology, can outlast the shift.
The radios feature Class 3L transmitting power and industry-leading receiving sensitivity (–120 dBm), providing more smooth communications even at a distance or in the edge area, further enhancing personal safety and work efficiency.
Easy to Use
User-friendly UI design, upgraded 2.4-inch screen, and multifunctional buttons, along with large LED indicator lights, providing a comfortable viewing experience, convenient operation, and doubled efficiency.
