Monnit Launches Intrinsically Safe IECEx-Certified Wireless Sensors for Industrial Operations
SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IECEx–Monnit announced the availability of its intrinsically safe ALTA-ISX® Long-Range Wireless Sensors today to protect workers and facilities in industrial environments with explosive atmospheres.
Monnit is releasing its first three sensors that are IECEx-certified—the ALTA-ISX Temperature and Dry Contact Sensors and the 300 PSIG Pressure Meter. By the end of 2022, Monnit will add three to six more sensors to its ALTA-ISX product line. IECEx is the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres.
Monnit ALTA-ISX Sensors are intrinsically safe for use in hazardous industrial areas within potentially explosive atmospheres. Petrochemical, manufacturing, power generation, construction, and other industries can be susceptible to combustible gas, vapor, or mist igniting or exploding.
These ALTA-ISX Sensors are not only certified as intrinsically safe in explosive atmospheres of group IIA and hazardous Zone 1 environments, but they’re also:
- Incapable of causing a spark or reaching a temperature (class T3) that could ignite an explosive atmosphere comprising a range of group IIA gases or dust
- Able to be used in many industrial applications worldwide where combustible gases (group IIA) may be present in Zone 1 areas
Like all ALTA Sensors and Meters, the ALTA-ISX product line runs on an IoT sensor platform that features an outdoor line-of-sight, long-range data transmission of up to one mile, and an indoor non-line-of-sight of up to 1,200+ feet through 12+ walls.
“Industrial environments continually evolve with new technologies,” said Monnit Founder and CEO Brad Walters. “But operational safety precautions must remain at the forefront. With ALTA-ISX Sensors, you can confidently keep safety the priority.”
