Ex e / Ex t Temperature sensors
Ex e – increased safety, for gas zones 1 or 2
Ex t – dust-protected enclosure, for dust areas.
- The sensor is an ATEX and/or IECEx-certified, Ex e-type, Pt100 or TC sensor, which can also be used for dust areas, thanks to its dust-protected Ex t enclosure.
- The measuring circuit can be cabled to a safe area and to a standard device (no ATEX/IECEx requirements).
- The SKS Group has been granted an ATEX Quality Assurance Notification (VTT 02 ATEX Q001) as required under EU directive 94/9/EC. The notification, issued by VTT Expert Services Ltd., gives the right to manufacture Ex e and Ex t temperature sensors and to assemble Ex d temperature sensors for use in explosive atmospheres. Please find a copy of the notification below.
- When ATEX certified sensor types are needed, we will manufacture e.g. Ex II 2 GD Ex e II T1-T6 Ex tD A21 IP66 approved sensors. Please find copies of the product certificates below.
- Our currently certified products are presented below.
- We can manufacture and apply for authorization also for different kind of Ex e-designs, which are to be individually agreed. Please contact our Ex experts.
