Ex products

A large number of Meggitt Vibro-Meter® products are Ex certified so that they can be used in hazardous areas (also known as potentially explosive atmospheres, hazardous locations or Ex zones).

  • Sensors and signal conditioners:
    • Vibration sensors (CA, CE, CV and PV)
    • Dynamic pressure sensors (CP)
    • Proximity sensors (TQ)
    • Cables
    • Signal conditioners (IPC and IQS)

    • Industrial housings (ABA)
    • Junction boxes (JB)
    • Power supplies (APF).
  • Monitoring and protection systems:
    • VibroSmart® distributed monitoring system devices.

On individual product pages in the Product catalogue, applicable certificates for the product are provided under Downloads. This includes the Ex certificates that should be referred to for important hazardous area related information, such as the type of protection and any special conditions for safe use.

In addition, the Meggitt Vibro-Meter® Ex products register document lists all products that are Ex certified by product name, part number (PNR) and hazardous area certifications such as ATEX (Europe), IECEx (International), cCSAus (North America), NEPSI (China), TIIS (Japan), KGS (Korea (South)) and RU (Russian Federation):

In addition to being listed in the Meggitt Vibro-Meter® Ex products register document, products that are Ex certified can be identified from markings on the product itself. For example, in accordance with the ATEX directive (directive 2014/34/EU of the European Parliament), the product marking must include the specific markings of explosion protection, notably the hexagonal “epsilon x” explosion-proof symbol, followed by the symbols denoting equipment group, category (zone), gas/dust, type of protection, together with other additional markings and information.
