IMI Sensors Receive GOST-R Certification for Accelerometers


Predictive Maintenance Line Qualified for Hazardous Use

Depew, NY - IMI Sensors, the industrial monitoring division of PCB Piezotronics, announced today that GOST-R certification has been obtained for its predictive maintenance line of ICP® accelerometers as well as 4-20 mA vibration transmitters and vibration switches. GOST-R certification is required of instrumentation that will be used in Russia in potentially hazardous or explosive areas.

The certification covers IMI's popular low-cost industrial ICP® accelerometer series designed for permanent mount applications. Series 602, 603, 606, 607 and 608 accelerometers have gained approval. Precision accelerometer models in Series 622, 623 and 628 are also certified. All vibration transmitters in IMI's growing 4-20 mA product offering are also approved. This includes all 64X series models and the 649 series Reciprocating Machinery Protector. All three of IMI's vibration switch offerings have been approved including the innovative 686B programmable switch. Select models in the electronic vibration switch series 685B are approved as well as the mechanical switch 685A08.

A proper GOST-R Certificate of Conformity is required for customs clearance, distribution and sales in Russia and often is requested at the time of shipment. PCB's products are sold in Russia exclusively through authorized distributors only. For more information go to www.imi-sensors.com or contact Mike Scott (800) 959-4464 or mscott@pcb.com
