The Solexy BAF intrinsically safe Ethernet  couplers  are an integrated protection device that  facilitates Ethernet cabling installation in hazardous areas making the signal intrinsically safe. The patented (7,507,105) BAF coupler features a barrier circuit which protects the field cabling  spark ignition. The BAF circuit is encapsulated and housed in an aluminum or stainless steel housing and is designed to operate as an intrinsically safe barrier located in a safe area.  

The  BAF intrinsically  safe  Ethernet coupler  can be used   with   most   PC’s,   Switches,  Gateways   and other Ethernet devices to ensure intrinsic safety for communicating into a hazardous area.


  1. The Solexy BAF is an associated apparatus and shall only be installed in a non-hazardous location.
  2. This device will not work with POE, using it with PO could result in equipment damage.
  3. This device is intended for 10/100 Mbps Ethernet.
  4. Length of cable that it is permitted at the output of the unit is dependent on the Lo and Co values assigned, see EN/IEC 60079-14, clause
  5. The user should not repair this equipment.
  6. The user should not modify the unit.
  7. The user should not modify the unit.
  8. The unit should not painted by the user.

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.

  1. Offshore RigMan88

    Pays to Read Precautions when Handling with this Metal

    Offshore RigMan88

    SOLEXY BAF3A0101XN040 is an industry-grade Intrinsically Safe Ethernet Barrier. It pays to go over the manual to learn and do’s and dont’s of this model as I learned that this type of barrier can never be around aggressive substances including acids and gases that can affect metals.
