Ventev, the manufacturing unit of TESSCO Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TESS), recently announced a partnership with Rajant Corporation, a pioneer of Kinetic Mesh® wireless networks, to offer customers fast and efficient real-time data monitoring with plug-and-play solutions for harsh or hazardous environments, the company said.
Monitoring equipment, people, and processes is paramount to ensure safety, regulatory compliance, and efficiency for oil refineries, fracking sites, and offshore drilling. These environments create a host of challenges to monitoring, including hazardous conditions, harsh weather, and remote locations.
Ventev partnered with Rajant to offer customers two all-in-one solutions, the ES1-IS-2450 and KM3-ES-2450, to solve these challenges. Each solution features a Rajant mesh network radio and power converter housed within a Ventev enclosure along with four external antennas.
The ES1-IS-2450 is a Global C1D1 explosion-proof solution that includes a Rajant ES1 BreadCrumb®. It is intended to provide connectivity for IIoT applications and light-duty vehicles in hazardous environments. The second solution, the KM3-ES-2450, integrates a KM3 Kinetic Mesh radio within a NEMA 4X enclosure aimed to provide connectivity to sensors, input/output devices, and CCTV while protecting against harsh environments (non-hazardous).
Ventev, a unit of TESSCO Technologies Inc., engineers and manufactures industry-leading Wi-Fi and wireless infrastructure products, to ensure reliable network performance and simplify installation of Wi-Fi, IoT, LTE, DAS and two-way networks.
