The Enrange XLTX and MLTX2 transmitters are now ATEX and IECEx certified for EX Zone 0, Zone 1, and Zone 2 potentially hazardous environments, while the Enrange MLTX is intended for applications requiring non-incendive ratings to comply with North American requirements. “We are pleased to be exhibiting our ATEX and IECEx certified XLTX and MLTX2 transmitters,  as these wireless controls are now certified to control equipment used worldwide in potentially hazardous applications such as petrochemical operations and above ground mining,” said Ben Stoller, director of radio controls. “End user acceptance of the stringent ATEX and IECEx standards is typical in North America and worldwide.”

ATEX compliance, required by the European Union, certifies that Magnetek wireless controls are safe to use in potentially explosive areas with flammable gases or vapors.
