What is ATEX and why I should choose an Amphenol Procom ATEX antenna?
ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres: 99.92/EC (workplace) and 2014/34/EU (equipment). It has been mandatory to use ATEX approved equipment in environment’s such as the chemical industry, oil refineries, offshore installations, the milling industry, paint industry, mining industry etc. since July 2003. To comply with ATEX standards, Amphenol Procom ATEX antennas have to go through 20 stringent tests and certifications to meet this high exacting standards including impact, thermal endurance and ingress protection tests.
