In Industrial IoT, plant and/or field areas that are exposed to ignitable concentrations of flammable gas, vapor and/or dust where an electrical spark could cause a hazardous explosion are classified as “hazardous” areas. Today’s industrial enterprises are looking to keep their assets protected and ensure workers are operating in safe conditions.


To keep worksites operating safely in hazardous areas, today’s industrial IoT manufacturers are looking for ways to increase efficiency, productivity and still keep workers safe.

Cassia Networks works with Smart IIoT equipment manufacturers to help them overcome these challenges and to provide the competitive edge they need to reach their business goals. Cassia’s ATX2000 Bluetooth Gateway for hazardous areas provides companies in various IIoT sectors with a product uniquely designed for hazardous area to enable smart IIoT solutions such as Condition Monitoring, Predictive Maintenance as well as Personnel & Asset Tracking solutions.


Cassia’s ATX2000 Bluetooth gateway is IP66 and NEMA 4 rated and fully certified for Zone 2, 22 and Division 2 hazardous areas. With a ruggedized enclosure and marine grade copper-free aluminum alloy material, the ATX2000 is designed to withstand the harshest outdoor environments.

Cassia’s ATX2000 extends Bluetooth connectivity up to 1 km with Bluetooth 5.0 (in open space) and provides enables remote control of up to 40 Bluetooth Low Energy devices (and hundreds in broadcast mode) without requiring any changes to end devices. Solution providers benefit from lower deployment and equipment costs allowing for a greater ROI.

And, in conjunction with Cassia’s IoT Access Controller (AC), a powerful management software tool, end-users can easily manage hundreds of gateways from one centralized interface.
