X20 system from B&R receives ATEX and HazLoc certification
Control for Zone 2
Modules from B&R's X20 controller system are now certified for ATEX Zone 2 and HazLoc Division 2 environments. These modules can now be used in locations where explosive atmospheres may temporarily occur in the event of an error.
This certification is required, for example, in bottling plants for high-proof alcohol, spirits and cleaning agents. Heating and air conditioning equipment may also fall under the ATEX directive in the European Union or the ANSI/ISA 12.12.01-2007 standard in the USA. The same applies to a wide variety of other applications in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
