Hazardous Area Vibration Sensors
Wilcoxon Research introduces a range of sensors rated for operation in hazardous areas and in machinery health monitoring applications. With the Intrinsic Safety (IS) certification, they can be used where flammable or explosive materials are present without causing electrical sparks or “hot spots” strong enough to cause ignition of gases or dusts in the air. The sensors meet the standards for IS and explosion-proof certification that are established by the NFPA in the U.S., the CSA in Canada and CENELEC in the European Union. Hazardous area uses include oil and gas applications; chemical, paint and plastic plants; pharmaceutical manufacturing; steel processing; mining; food and beverage processing; tire and rubber plants; and aircraft and ship board monitoring.
