Since 2003, all hazardous location products to be sold in the European market must be certified to the ATEX directive (ATEX 94/9/EC). The objective of ATEX is to allow goods to be traded throughout the European Union under one harmonized set of standards. ATEX product certification (or EC Type Examination) involves a detailed process of examination, testing and assessment of equipment intended for use in potentially hazardous areas. Once this process has been completed, an ATEX certificate and report is issued by a Notified Body.
In collaboration with certified bodies we can engineer and build certified enclosures for UL, ATEX, IECEx, CE. These certified enclosures may be populated with terminals, pushbuttons, selector switches, indicator lamps, cable glands, conduit hubs and breather drains.
