What is an Intrinsically Safe (I.S.) Device?
Intrinsic Safety (I.S.) is a safety standard established for the safe operation of electrical equipment in hazardous areas by limiting the energy (electrical and thermal) available for ignition. Areas with dangerous concentrations of flammable gases or dust such as petrochemical refineries are required to operate using Intrinsically Safe electronic devices. All the radios, audio accessories and third party sensors that integrate with Expert Mobile Communications and the oil and gas industry are I.S. certified to meet the safety requirements of a working environment.

Oil and Gas Segments Communications Solutions in our Portfolio
Oil exploration sites are often located in large, open areas and, consequently, have poor infrastructure for network coverage. Voice and data communications rely on satellites, two-way radios, or radio stations to function. For workers to be safe and efficient, this industry requires a temporary, yet reliable and resilient communications network.
Expert Mobile Communications delivers solutions designed to support voice and video communications, whilst ensuring operational efficiencies and safety at exploration sites.
Our equipment are portable, and can be deployed with features that are flexible in their controls. Communications range can be expanded quickly, so that workers in all locations can stay connected and work in a unified manner, maximizing their efficiencies.
With our integrated command and control systems, videos can be transmitted to the command center, ensuring teams remain in contact at all times.
In the oil field, companies often deploy their private wired networks for day-to-day operations, because public networks are not reliably available. However, construction of these type of private networks requires a lot of time and resources, including manpower and a large number of expensive bulky network equipment.
Utilizing the customer's existing wired networks, Expert Mobile's narrowband network can transmit equipment data from the oil well and offshore platforms straight to to the Control Centre. Additionally, we offer a complete solutions coverage for video surveillance, daily inspections, unified dispatch, work orders, data management and remote equipment monitoring that helps to improve safety and productivity.
Flexible Setup of Terminals
Paired with either a repeater or a base station, we are able to provide terminals that can be used in hazardous environments, with various applicable explosion-proof standards.
Equipment maintenance is crucial to detect anomalies and optimize productivity in the oilfield. Our Work Order features offers an easy way to streamline and automate your operations.
Oil and gas companies usually establish fiber optics communications networks for data transmissions. However, fiber optic networks may not be available in certain environments. Our broadband video surveillance solutions allows the command center to view real-time photos and videos from the field, improving on-site inspection capabilities, and emergency response times.
Whether your personnel are in the field or at the control center, they can be setup with a unified voice communications ecosystem for enhanced collaborations. Expert Mobile provides location-based convergence solutions that keep your workforce connected. They are able to communicate instantly via narrowband private network, public network, or both.
With fluctuations in oil prices, on-demand production has become one of the most preferred operating methods for oil and gas companies. Our intelligent systems help operators in the command center to view oil production in real time, whilst remotely controlling equipment, improving production efficiency and reducing loss.
Talk To A Wireless Expert
Pipelines exist as the most preferred form of transporting oil and gas products, as they are able to carry the largest volumes efficiently. However, oil and gas pipelines could traverse remote areas with harsh environments and poor networking infrastructure, leading to high maintenance costs, and sometimes theft or damage could occur.
Expert Mobile offers digital pipeline solutions that enable oil and gas companies to tackle their pipeline monitoring challenges. our solutions apply advanced ICT technology to provide a digital communications platform, and intelligent security surveillance systems, guaranteeing efficient communications and better monitoring along pipeline routes.
Inspection and Maintenance
With our devices, you can deploy DMR and TETRA networks along pipelines to provide 24 / 7 voice communication services, which support the work of your maintenance personnel.
Workers along pipelines can also use our quality LTE supported two way radio devices to deal with work order, electronic inspection, and other mobile office services to monitor remotely.
Blind Spot Coverage
By using self-managed networks, or Expert Mobile equipment such as miniaturized base stations and portable repeaters, workers in pipeline environments can quickly and efficiently establish temporary communications networks.
Our SCADA systems support end-to-end encryption, data monitoring and retransmissions, load balancing and other technologies, effectively securing your data transmissions along oil and gas pipelines.
In refineries or petrochemical plants, production facilities consist of a variety of reaction units, pipelines, storage tanks, and shielded rooms. This kind of environment may block wireless communication signals. In addition, only communication equipment that comply with explosion-proof standards can be used in the production area. These issues pose great challenges to the communications.
Expert Mobile offers integrated solutions, including voice, data, positioning, network interconnectivity, and industrial park security. Our solutions enhance monitoring capabilities and improve communications efficiencies.
