Energy site perimeter detection systems

Intrinsically safe security equipment (ATEX)

What is ATEX? 

ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling gases/vapours and dust explosive atmospheres:

1) Directive 99/92/EC (also known as ‘ATEX 137’ or the ‘ATEX Workplace Directive’) on the minimum requirements for improving the health and safety protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres. 

2) Directive 94/9/EC (also known as ‘ATEX 95’ or ‘the ATEX Equipment Directive’) on the approximation of the laws of Members States concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. 

Security systems within these high-risk locations has always been a difficult and specialised area. 

Our combined research & development team is able to design and install intrinsically safe systems for ATEX level protection with dedicated in-house unique sensor systems that are safe to use in highly volatile environments, around combustible materials and in hazardous areas, typically found in the core of critical energy sites, such as gas valves, fuel farms, chemical plants and more. 

Our systems utilize specialised protective barriers on all wiring points to prevent sparks, electric surges and limit voltage level. 

The perimeter sensor systems are certified under and comply with EN 60079-25:2010 & IEC 60079-25:2010 Ed.2 for safe application in such volatile hazardous areas.
