AIS Introduces UL Class I Division 2, ATEX Zone 2 Industrial Monitors and Multi Touch Displays for Hazardous Locations in Petroleum Industry


Intrinsically Safe, 15” Stainless Steel Monitor for Hazardous Zone 2 Areas without the Need for Expensive Safety Measures or Additional Certifications

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA  - American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS) expands its Intrinsically Safe Technology offering of HMI, control and monitoring solutions designed specifically for Oil & Gas, Refineries, Chemical Processing and Industrial Plants with the introduction of its new Stainless Steel Monitors and Industrial Multi-Touch Displays. The new 15” flat panel industrial monitor from AIS is Non-Incendive (NI), Intrinsically Safe (IS) and Explosion Proof, and meets NEC/CEC Class/Division, ATEX Directive 94/9/EC Zone for safety in Division 2 and Zone 2 Operator Control and Monitoring Applications.

Intrinsically Safe Rugged Monitors Help Refineries Meet Increasing Regulatory Compliance
The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) and Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) are concerned with protection against risks from fire, explosion and similar events arising from dangerous substances used or present in the workplace. They set minimum requirements for the protection of workers from fire and explosion risks related to dangerous substances and potentially explosive atmospheres and require employers to control the risks to the safety of employees and others from fire and explosions. Complying with new and existing government regulations consume resources. Efficiency and productivity are the keys to success for refineries. Advances in digital control and monitoring and intrinsically safe technology from AIS are enabling the Oil & Gas Offshore or Onshore Massive, Drilling Rigs and Platforms, Refiners and Pipeline Transportation to proactively manage these efforts and eliminate expensive measures for additional certifications or environmental approvals.

A Safer Work Environment and Less Controller Fatigue Leads To Higher Operational Productivity
Approved for ISA12.12.01/CSA 213: Non-incendive, Non-sparking, and Hermetical-sealed, IEC/UL/CSA 60079-11: Intrinsic Safety ”ic” (Gc), IEC/UL/CSA 60079-15, including many other certifications for fire and explosion protection, AIS hazardous areas industrial monitors and displays ensure the ultimate in safety for transportation of hazardous liquids and gases.  AIS Stainless Steel Monitors and Displays with UL and ATEX certifications for hazardous areas (Class 1 Div 2, Zone 2), with either a local console or a standard remote HMI near the pipeline include these additional key benefits:
• Improved controller/operator safety from remote control and detection of equipment failure
• Minimized exposure of personnel to  potentially hazardous areas through remote monitoring
• Increased productivity and less fatigue resulting from a safer, more efficient work flow

Lowering Total Cost of Ownership and Shortening Time to Market
AIS Rugged Stainless Steel Monitors and Multi Touch Screen Displays for Hazardous Areas are constructed completely with sealed stainless steel type 4/4X, IP 65/66, NEMA 4/4X enclosure with environmental ratings (UL 50 or IEC 529) on the entire monitor including fully sealed I/O ports.
