The BARTEC Pixavi Phone is an intrinsically safe phone with an aluminium enclosure, toughened glass windows and an anti-static coating.

Designed to handle the most challenging environments with rugged durability, the BARTEC Pixavi is also elegant and pocket-sized, measuring in at just 164 x 84 x 14.5 mm and less than 300g in weight.

A 5.5″ AMOLED display supports a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels at 400 ppi, constructed with tough Corning Gorilla Glass.

Supporting touchscreen input via bare or gloved finger, or using a stylus, the BARTEC Pixavi Phone can be used in a variety of settings without removing personal protective equipment.

The specifications of the BARTEC Pixavi are like a shopping list of rugged smartphone materials, constructed into a highly durable and intrinsically safe phone:

  • Anodized aluminium rigid body
  • Rubber reinforced edges for additional protection
  • Shock and scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Optional protective cover
  • Optional wired stylus
  • Optional dropped safety straps
  • Magnetic charging port
  • Programmable button (e.g. for one-touch ‘man down’ alarm)

This all builds to create an intrinsically safe smartphone that can be used with confidence in a wide range of hazardous areas.

What’s inside the BARTEC Pixavi Phone?

At the heart of the BARTEC Pixavi Phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-Core 2.2 GHz with 64 GB of onboard storage and 4 GB of LPDDR4X RAM.

There’s also a slot for an additional MicroSD card to add up to 128 GB SDXC (UHS-1) storage, or to install a second SIM card in place of the SD.

A 3.8V, 3,200 mAh (12.16 Wh) lithium ion battery delivers the power, while a front-facing 8MP 1080p camera and rear 12MP 4K UHD camera both support photo, video and barcode capture capabilities.

There are all the usual sensors packed inside the ultra-slim case: accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, plus GPS, Bluetooth 5.0 and 2.4/5 GHz 802.11a/g/b/n/ac Wi-Fi.


Is the BARTEC Pixavi Phone the best on the market?

The BARTEC Pixavi can certainly lay claim to being one of the most intrinsically safe smartphones on the market, as well as one of the sleekest designs in its class.

In addition to its Zone 1/21 ATEX/IECEx and NEC Class I Div 1 certification, the Pixavi Phone claims to be the lightest and slimmest intrinsically safe phone currently available, with a market-leading screen size.

With its rugged, explosion proof case and list of other safety features, BARTEC says the Pixavi Phone is “purpose engineered for the strictest EX requirements”.
