Westlock Controls is pleased to announce that its AccuTrak™ 2800 series units have achieved further independent certification. Following extensive testing, the AccuTrak™ 2800 linear position monitors are now IECEx certified, as well as meeting the latest ATEX and EN health and safety standards. Internationally recognised, the IECEx certification provides global assurance of the product’s ability to check linear valves, using junction housing and position switches in explosive or flammable atmospheres.
The AccuTrak™ 2800 series of linear position monitors now benefit from a wider certified temperature range, from -30°C to +60 or 85°C, depending on the unit, offering greater flexibility for use in a wide variety of hazardous applications. Factory pre-wired Magnum switches allow position sensing of smaller valves, while easy back wiring of 316 Silver Bullet sensors accommodate observation of larger ones, delivering a cost-effective method of monitoring linear valves in situ.
The aluminium enclosures, with an ultra low copper content, also ensure optimal performance even in corrosive environments. The innovative linear unit now comes with the option of a robust stainless steel enclosure, and the addition of a Falcon solenoid valve if required, thanks to conduit entries and a numbered terminal strip.
Mike Lutolf, Global Product Manager – Controls, comments: “This latest international IECEx approval demonstrates that our AccuTrak™ 2800 series of linear position monitors are both explosion proof and flameproof to achieve great performance when monitoring valves in hazardous applications. We understand that independent third-party certification is important to our customers, as it confirms the reliability and quality of our products. We continuously strive to achieve all applicable accreditation, and will continue to do so to ensure that our systems meet the requirements of the market.
