Why ATEX Certification is a Requirement
 

ATEX certification for equipment was created to ensure employee safety in explosive atmospheres. Today many countries have made it a requirement for organizations operating in certain industries to use equipment that meets the regulatory compliance. This includes technologies used in potentially explosive atmospheres.

What industries require ATEX-certified equipment?

Regulations apply to any potentially explosive environments including electrical, mechanical, mining, and even flour mills. ATEX-certified equipment is especially imperative in hazardous locations like oil refineries, offshore oil rigs, petrochemical plants, and remote pipeline locales.

When equipment is ATEX certified, it ensures it is safe for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and other hazardous locales. At Winmate, we recently received the certification on our R15ID3S-65FTE/Ex. This panel PC now carries the ATEX and C1D2 dual certification, which means it won’t produce heat or spark sufficient to ignite explosive atmospheres where gases such as acetylene, hydrogen, esters and hydrocarbons may have accidentally entered the atmosphere. It meets regulatory compliance for use in industries such as oil, gas, and petrochemical manufacturing, and others where ignitable gases or vapor may be present.
