Solexy’s patented (7,507,105) Explosion-Proof/ intrinsically Safe Ethernet Coupler allows for the transmissions of Ethernet into hazardous areas with a standard RJ45 connector. With the Solexy Ethernet coupler it’s possible to connect any standard Ethernet devices located in a hazardous or safe area.

The BXF explosion proof and intrinsically safe barrier is certified for installation in hazardous areas and BAF intrinsically safe barrier is suitable for installation in safe areas and purged systems. The BXF is designed to be used with any USA and Canada, ATEX or IECEx listed explosion proof housing without the need of a seal fitting taking up no internal space.

The BAF is designed to be used in safe areas directly with any CAT5 or CAT5e cable system. The BAF is also designed to be used with air purge panel systems. A BXF and/or BAF coupler is required on each end of a cable installation for full protection of both the RX and TX lines.



All required circuitry is recessed into fitting and encapsulated against harsh environments; this is impossible with conventional sealing methods.


Ethernet cables can be Hot Connected or Disconnected without powering down the system. This is critical for temporary connections such as PLC or VFD programming


With this secure weather proof industrial connection, cable installation and removal can be accomplished without removing power.
