On the one hand, the new certificates were supposed to reflect the current state-of-the-art GL 2014/34/EU as well as the standards EN/IEC 60079. On the other hand, with the new certificate we have extended the temperature range to what is technically possible. As a result, cameras of the ExCam series can safely be operated in a range of -60°C and +150°C.
In addition, certification can be extended at any time to cover different markets. For South Africa, for example, this has already been achieved with the MASC (Mining and Surface Certification).
Besides the European regulations (ATEX), the ExCam series is also certified according to international regulations (IECEx) as well as the Russian custom-union (EAC-Ex). The housings’ certification comprises ATEX group I (mining) with a low risk of mechanical threat and ATEX group II (Gas and Dust) for zone 1, 2 as well as 21 and 22 including the explosion groups IIC / IIIC with a high risk of mechanical threat. In accordance with the requirements of the impact and free-fall tests (DIN EN 60079: 0 2012), the housings are suitable for fixed as well as mobile applications!
