Xerafy announces ATEX compliance for RFID tags
07 March 2012
Xerafy Ltd, a global supplier of RFID metal tags, has announced that its RFID tags are now certified to comply with the ATEX regulations for safe use in explosion-prone applications and potentially hazardous areas.
Xerafy’s tags successfully completed a detailed process of examination, testing and assessment for use in potentially hazardous areas by TECTUS, a leading and experienced ATEX specialist for RFID systems. Under the control and authority of TECTUS, the tags have been marked with “CE” and “Ex” symbols.
The certification covers compliance with: EN60079-0:2006 General requirements, EN60079-0:2007 Intrinsic safety, IEC61241-0:2004 Dust explosion protection and IEC61241-11:2005 Intrinsically safe apparatus.
“The advantage of having Xerafy tags ATEX-certified is to facilitate their acceptance within the EU, and also in many other areas worldwide, for adoption within hazardous environments where ATEX compliance is mandatory,” said Udo W. Doege, managing director of TECTUS. “Our industrial customers are now able to procure ATEX-certified Xerafy tags from TECTUS and use these safely and reliably in ATEX Zone 1 or Zone 21."
