Stringent controls for products operating in potentially explosive environments
ATEX is a French abbreviation of Appareils destinés à être utilisés en ATmosphères EXplosibles (Devices for use in explosive atmospheres). Consisting of two European Union (EU) directives, it focuses on:
1. The employees potentially at risk using equipment in explosive atmospheres (Directive 99/92/EC), and;
2. The manufacturing of equipment used in potentially explosive atmospheres (Directive 94/9/EC)
Precision with quality and integrity as standard
As products become more complex with the need for increased data accuracy and connectivity in potentially explosive environments, it is important to choose a manufacturing partner that not only has stringent manufacturing and documentation controls, but also reinforces the quality and integrity required to support your ATEX approved products in safety critical environments.
