Electrochem Achieves Certification of Wireless Sensors for Use in Hazardous Environments


Electrochem announced today that its line of Wireless Pressure, Temperature and Flow Sensors have attained certification for use in hazardous environments from CSA International. The certification applies to US (Class I; Division 1; Groups A, B, C, D; T4) and Canada (Ex/AEx ia IIC T4).

Specifically designed for rough and harsh environments, Electrochem's Wireless Sensor products are constructed with 316L stainless-steel housing and a stainless-steel wetted surface pressure diaphram with a proprietary sputtered thin-film full-bridge strain gauge circuit offering superior long-term stability and higher temperature capability over other strain gauge technologies. Additionally, the sensors utilize aerospace-quality sensing elements and are assembled in a sealed housing.

"Electrochem's Wireless Sensor construction provides a detector in which stability, interchangeability, and accuracy are the highest available for industrial process, manufacturing and automation applications, including the oil and gas industry," commented Linda Collette, Director of Business Development and Marketing for Electrochem. "This certification will allow us to better service a range of applications in the energy market, both onshore to offshore, with this ground-breaking technology."

Electrochem's Wireless Sensing Systems offer a complete solution, including the sensor, gateway and customized software, allowing users to remotely manage their resources more effectively and ensure real-time decision making from their desks. By saving time, space and money, Wireless Sensing enables users to do more with their resources and work with confidence, even in the most dirty, hazardous, and harsh operating conditions.
