CSE-Semaphore Announces Hazardous Area Approval for RTU Product Line

LAKE MARY, FL - CSE-Semaphore, a CSE Global company, announces that the TBox Wireless Monitor has passed all third-party testing criteria for operation in Class I, division 2 hazardous areas. Approved products are now shipping from the factory. This approval applies to configurations with integral displays; other Wireless Monitor configurations have previously been approved for operation in Class I, division 1 hazardous areas.

The ultra low-power, battery-operated TBox Wireless Monitor (WM) is ideal for installation in remote areas in which it supervises assets in the chemical, environmental, oil & gas, transportation, utility, and water / wastewater industries. The new ratings significantly expand the applications for the compact, IP68-rated, TBox WM integrated package.

Class I, division 1 and division 2 approvals allow TBox WM to operate in hazardous atmospheres such as those in natural gas installations as well as at digesters or sewer lines in the wastewater treatment industry.

TBox employs an innovative, decentralized architecture that enables the complete integration of programmable automation, alarm management, data logging and IP telemetry in a single, rugged package. Simple yet powerful platforms leverage web technologies and push messaging via e-mail, SMS text, and FTP. TBox systems are easy to configure and offer dramatically reduced costs versus traditional PLC and SCADA architectures.

CSE-Semaphore's RTU products are ideal for a broad range of monitoring and control applications in the asset management, broadcast / telecom, oil & gas, power, transportation and water / wastewater industries.
