MINNETONKA, Minn., Dec. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Electro-Sensors, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELSE) today announced it has successfully achieved Intrinsically Safe Class II Div. 1 certification for the HazardPRO wireless hazard monitoring nodes and sensors. This certification allows the installation of HazardPRO's sensors and nodes in locations where combustible dust is or may be in suspension in the air under normal operating conditions, in quantities sufficient to produce explosive or ignitable mixtures. Class II Div. 1 is the highest rating for combustible dusts as defined by OSHA and can exist in facilities across many markets Electro-Sensors serves. In addition to its demonstrated industrial wireless technology and ease-of-installation, HazardPRO is quickly changing the way organizations protect their people, products, and facilities.
Working closely with a third-party certification lab, Electro-Sensors was able to leverage experience gained through previous certification projects along with engineering expertise with intrinsically safe circuit design to achieve approval in a timely and efficient manner. "The Class II Div. 1 certification of our nodes combined with a broad portfolio of certified intrinsically safe sensors sets HazardPRO apart from other hazard monitoring systems," said Rick Eller, Electro-Sensors' Sales and Business Development Manager.
As a truly integrated hazard monitoring system, HazardPRO captures and displays key information via an interactive touchscreen interface, allowing users to quickly and comprehensively understand the status of their plant. The combination of this simple yet powerful interface, real-time charting capabilities and comprehensive historical data archiving provides users keen insights into the wellness of their facility, leading to more effective maintenance scheduling and greater facility uptime.
