Heavy duty ATEX/IECEx certified sensors
For zone 1 hazardous environments
ATEX is an EU directive applicable for electrical equipment that is used in potentially explosive atmospheres. When the atmosphere contains flammable or combustible gases, vapor, mists or dust, an electric spark can lead to hazardous explosions.
Our ATEX sensors are designed, tested, and certified according to European safety standards. This ensures that the sensors are suitable for its intended purpose and can be used safely in hazardous environments, such as oil rigs, mining, and chemical plants.
Where an ATEX certification is only valid in EU countries, IECEx certification is internationally adopted. IECEx sensors can be installed in hazardous environments all over the world.
