Intrinsically Safe Force Sensors

Our high-quality Intrinsically Safe Force Sensors are for force measurement in areas subject to explosion hazards. Our sensors are certified according to IECEx or Atex.

Intrinsically Safe Force Sensors

Most of our Force Sensors and Weighing & Load Cells offered on our website are intrinsically safe for use in hazardous areas.

To find the ATEX/IECEx approved Force Sensors and Load Cells suited to your needs, please select a subcategory (e.g. Single Point Load Cells) and use the filter on top of the page.

A wide selection of intrinsically safe and ATEX approved sensors are available.

What are ATEX/IECEx sensors?

ATEX is a European certification, that determines that our sensors are allowed to be used within an explosive or hazardous environment. ATEX itself means: ATmosphere EXplosibles. Explosive atmospheres in the workplace can be caused by flammable gases, mists or vapours or by combustible dusts. When these are combined with an ignition source, they can become explosive.

Our ATEX/IECEx sensors can be used in industries like: gas and oil platforms, mines, flour mills, shipping yards and refineries.
