A new weighing terminal from METTLER TOLEDO is specially designed for safe and accurate weighing in potentially explosive classified IECEX hazardous areas of Zone 1 / 21, Division 1. The ICS466x weighing terminal minimises risks of explosion and keeps inspection and maintenance costs as low as possible without sacrificing performance. July 2014, Melbourne, Australia – To ensure optimum safety in potentially explosive environments, weighing systems and their components must have an appropriate level of protection. The new ICS466x weighing terminal from METTLER TOLEDO is intrinsically safe, which means it limits power output and prevents sparks or high temperatures in the electrical circuit that can ignite the surrounding atmosphere. The ICS466x weighing terminal meets compliance regulations and provides ignition protection for hazardous-area applications. It is a cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for operating in areas with flammable gas, dust or fibers that may be present in hazardous areas. It is built to withstand tough industrial environments with a stainless-steel housing that prevents corrosion. The ICS466x also offers uncompromised performance and is designed to increase productivity in every production step. An intuitive operation menu offers users the flexibility to meet complex application requirements in hazardous areas. One of the greatest benefits is that intrinsic safety enables easy equipment maintenance within hazardous areas. There is no need to interrupt the power supply or obtain a gas-clearance certificate. The ICS466x is available globally and complies with the latest IECEX hazardous-area regulations and standards as well as ATEX and FMus+c. “Compliance with the latest regulations is critical,” says Chris Paassens , a hazardous area equipment expert with METTLER TOLEDO. “With the ICS466x terminal, operators are guaranteed many communications options in a compact design that easily integrates into existing production processes.” Visit www.au.mt.com/ind-ICS466x for more information on staying safe and compliant in hazardous areas.
