ATEX Surge Arrestors
OPTIMAL CONNECTIVITY offers Ex-proof products which are compliant with ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU and Compliant to IEC 61643-21 for use in potentially explosive atmospheres or hazardous locations and are in accordance with IEC/EN 60079 series of explosive atmosphere standards.
Certification in accordance with standards other than ATEX and IECEx are available on request. These devices serve the specific needs off radio equipment and wireless infrastructure in potentially explosive environment in various industries, including Oil&Gas, On/Offshore Facilities, Mining and Chemical Industry.
Ex-proof Surge Arrestorss are approved for use in potentially explosive atmosphere or hazardous locations and areas of Zone 2 (gas) and Zone 22 (dust) and provide reliable prevention against dangerous overvoltage surges on coaxial lines. This includes all kinds of interference, e.g. resistive, magnetic field and electric field coupling, caused by lightning strikes, switching,man-made electrostatic or electro-dynamic effects. This way, the operator of active equipment is not only protected from financial losses caused by the need of replacing the equipment, but also avoids downtime of the system after a possible event. This is specifically important in environment where access to equipment is difficult, dangerous and expensive, as e.g. on an Oil platform.
