Electronique with IECEx approval.
Jay Electronique follows up the successful release of the Moka handheld

controllers are also approved for use in potentially explosive gas atmospheres
classified zone 0, 1, 2, or dust classified zones 20, 21, 22.
The new Beta handheld controllers incorporate all the existing features
of the SAFIR family including a backlit, anti-reflection LCD display indicating
battery charge level, behaviour of the radio link, name of the equipment being
controlled remotely, and feedback from the equipment such as weight of load,
overload, limit switches, alarms or fault diagnostics.
User-friendly navigation menus on the new handheld controllers also
