May 19th, 2011

The units have been tested to EN60079–15 and are approved for use in zone 2 hazardous systems category 3G.  PULS have had to make no electrical changes to achieve the approval and that the Standard had been met in essence by dual conformal coating the internal components of the units.

The units which achieved this standard are models QS5.241-A1, QS10.241-A1 and QS20.241-A1 all which are now in stock in large numbers at our premises, for further information please look at the datasheets on our site or contact us now for prices.

ATEX, which derives its name from the French ‘ATmosphère EXplosif’ is the framework for controlling explosive atmospheres and the standards of equipment and protective systems used in them. By achieving EN60079–15 approval PULS is now well placed to become a major supplier of power supplies to this specialised sector of the market.
