Aegex Technologies has added a mining certificate to its portfolio of global certifications for safe use in the world’s most hazardous industrial operations.
The Aegex10 intrinsically safe Windows 10 tablet is globally certified for the world’s most explosive industrial environments, where high concentrations of flammable gases, vapours, dusts or fibres are likely to occur in normal operation, such as in oil and gas, chemical manufacturing, and other industries. Specifically, the tablet is approved for ATEX and IECEx Class 1 Zone 1, UL913 Class I, II and III Division 1 a-g and CSA 22.2 part 157 areas of hazardous locations. The Aegex10 is intrinsically safe, meaning it is designed to be incapable of generating energy sufficient to ignite a spark.
The Aegex10 has achieved a new certificate for safety in mining, which was granted by a certification body according to IECEx 60079 requirements and the ATEX directive. ATEX is the European Regulatory Framework for Manufacture, Installation and Use of Equipment in Explosive Atmospheres.
This mining certification approves the Aegex10 for use in mining operations where methane and coal dust may be present, specifically for I M2 Ex ib I Mb. Aegex10 tablets are now certified for mining operations throughout Europe, as well as international locations governed by IECEx.
“Mining is an important industry in many parts of the world. This additional certification for the Aegex10 intrinsically safe tablet gives mining operators in Europe, Africa, Asia and elsewhere the ability not only to maintain real-time communications with their crews, but also to access the data they need to make their operations safer and more efficient,” said Endre Surinya, Aegex’s director of product development and engineering.
