Softstart UK addresses hazardous area system design with new video
14 October 2014
Softstart UK has produced a new video exploring the complexities of system design for hazardous area applications where there is a risk of explosion. The video explains how certified equipment and techniques can be used to minimise risk.
Giving viewers a greater appreciation of the hazards involved, the video focuses on the key international standards. These include not only the ATEX Directive safety guidelines in Europe, but also the National Electrical Code in North America, and the IEC-Ex certification scheme, which is increasingly recognised worldwide.
In particular, the video focuses on the importance of certified housings, cabinets and control panels that might house inverters, PLCs, softstarters, sensors, switches, transformers and relays. It explains the requirements, and outlines how Softstart UK can help with system design.
