Crowcon`s Xgard Gas Detectors Gain New Approvals

Crowcon's ATEX-certified Xgard fixed gas detectors have gained new approvals, making them compliant with the safety requirements of an extensive range of markets. The Xgard range is designed to offer protection from a wide range of flammable and toxic gases and oxygen. They are available in explosion-proof or intrinsically safe forms.

The first of these new approvals, for Xgard explosion-proof detectors, is from Underwriters Laboratories Inc (UL) in the USA. This will allow these detectors to be used for hazardous area applications in countries where UL approval is required, including North and South America and parts of the Middle East.

Xgard's ATEX certification has also been extended to include use in ATEX Zones 21 and 22, for detecting flammable and toxic gases and oxygen where explosive dusts may be present.

Approval to the Marine Equipment Directive (96/98/EC) has been granted to Xgard types 1 and 2 oxygen detectors as part of the Gasmaster oxygen monitoring system. This means Xgard oxygen/Gasmaster systems can now be installed on vessels registered in Europe or other countries recognising the Directive.

Finally, all Xgard models are now certified to the IECEx Standard. IECEx is an international certification scheme created by the International Electrotechnical Commission to eliminate the need for multiple national certifications by providing one international certificate and certification mark accepted by all participating countries.
