Highly explosive atmospheres prevail in may industries around the world. For instance in the chemical industry, in refineries or in ship and aircraft construction. ATEX devices are indispensable in these areas to warn of hazards in the event of an emergency. The explosion proof devices have to comply with strict standards and need to be robust enough to withstand vibrations and extreme temperatures. Precisley for such ATEX rated equipment there is a European ATEX operating directive, which certifies the highest mechanical resistance and robustness. ATEX is derived from the French abbreviation “ATmosphères EXplosibles”.
Visual and audible ex equipment
Auer Signal’s ATEX devices provide safety for all applications where the atmosphere my become explosive. Like conventional signaling devices operating under standard conditions, explosion proof equipment can be divided into two main categories:
Our visual ex equipment is resistant to the risk of explosions, flammable gases, vapors or dusts. The visual ATEX devices are available in LED technology as steady, flashing, strobe or rotating lights and have a protection class of IP66 or IP67. Depending on the model, they are designed for Ex zones 1, 2, 21, 22. The rated voltage of our explosion proof electrical equipment ranges from 24V DC, 48V DC, 110-240V AC to 230V AC.
The audible explosion proof equipment is also designed to withstand gas and dust explosions. With a protection ranging of IP54 to IP66, the ATEX sirens operate at temperatures from -20°C to +75°C and cover the Ex Zones 1, 2, 21, and 22. Auer Signal’s ATEX sounders with explosion protection can be mounted vertically or horizontally and reach a sound level of up to 115 dB.
