InHand Networks, one of the leading pioneers of Internet of Things (IoT), is excited to announce the InGateway502 has been certified by UL and UL - C1D2 (class 1 division 2 hazardous locations). With these two certifications, they assure the InGateway502 is explosion proof and its operation safely can be ensured in potentially hazardous environments, including oil & gas, electric power and chemical industries or areas that any inflammable materials/combustibles may exist.

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is an independent and non-profit organization that tests and certifies components and products for safety in U.S. Its UL certification is based on area classification and explosion protection methods for either Division or Zone installations, which is widely perceived as the non-incentive standard in North America relating to products for use in hazardous locations (HazLocs). In terms of C1D2, it is a part of a safety classification system that defines what type of technology that is permissible and safe to use for all workers.

The InGateway502 (abbreviated as IG502) is a new-generation IoT edge gateway with pre-integrated industrial protocols such as Modbus TCP/RTU. It supports multiple IoT clouds (i.e., MS Azure and AWS), making it easy to collect data from different onsite devices, validate data and upload them to the cloud. Its configuration can be accomplished within a few minutes and customized for users to develop their own applications based on specific business with Python programming supported.
