Emerson Process Management has expanded the application of its CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter with intrinsic safety ratings to the US, Canadian, and European standards. With the Class I, Div 1 and ATEX Zone 0 ratings, the CSI 9420 can now be installed directly in hazardous areas such as chemical, petrochemical, and off-shore facilities as well as other explosion-classified environments.
The CSI 9420 connects quickly, easily, and economically to any machine. The safety ratings, which are in addition to existing hazardous area ratings to the Brazilian and IECEx standards, further extend the benefit of wireless technology to new areas of the plant. The CSI 9420 provides key insights into the condition of pumps, fans and other assets located in hazardous areas without the expense of running cables.
