SCAIME ensures compliance with legal requirements of health and safety at work...

SCAIME has decided to carry out the ATEX and IECEx certifications of its optical fiber measurement solutions in order to meet the growing demand for monitoring of structures in hazardous areas. These certifications allow the use of SCAIME Bragg grating sensors in the presence of flammable liquids, vapors, gases or combustible dusts.

Optical fiber measurement is particularly suited to hazardous environments where our customers are under significant pressure to minimize the risks when deploying measurement technologies:

  • Absence of electric currents
  • Extremely low optical radiation power that cannot cause flame ignition
  • Possibility of deporting the FBG acquisition units in a safe area over several kilometers

With this certification, SCAIME ensures compliance with legal requirements of health and safety at work, opening up the benefits of fiber optic measurement technology to a wider range of industrial applications.

The MDX series of interrogators are certified as "Associated Apparatus", meeting the requirements for intrinsically safe optical radiation. Associated with the interrogator located in a safe zone, our sensors are also certified and can be installed in hazardous areas for mining, gas or dust applications (Ex I M1 - Ex op is I Ma and Ex II 1 GD - Ex op is IIC T4 Ga - Ex op is IIIC T135 ° C Da).

SCAIME now offers the latest and most advanced optical measuring instruments for continuous and long-term use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
