BD|SENSORS now has products which are certified to the IECEx standard. The approval was granted by the notified body of TÜV NORD CERT GmbH, Hanover, and applies to electronic pressure transmitters, screw-in transmitters and hydrostatic level probes. The internationally valid IECEx certification supplements the existing ATEX version (EU) and regulates the global use of equipment in explosive areas. The aim of the IECEx certification is to close the gap in the statutory regulations with regard to explosion protection in many countries and to ensure that the safety of plant and personnel in potentially explosive areas is guaranteed. The IECEx certificate is recognised in many countries, which makes it easier to gain access to international markets and to market the products.
