Posted by Jean Femia on Jun 8, 2016 4:52:14 PM

ATEX logoATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres in workplaces.

Several Opto 22 products are now approved for both standards and offer you options for applications in potentially explosive areas.

The two standards are:

  • EN60079-0, issue date 2012 +A11:2013
    "Electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres. Part 0: General Requirements"
  • EN60079-15, issue date 2013
    "Explosive atmospheres Part 15: Equipment protection by type of protection 'n' "

The following Opto 22 products meet the ATEX standards:

SNAP I/O modules
SNAP-AIMA-4 — Analog current input module, 4 points, -20 mA to +20 mA
SNAP-AIV-4 — Analog voltage input module, 4 points, -10 VDC to +10 VDC
