KNOXVILLE, TENN (February 4, 2016) – Emerson Process Management’s CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer has received ATEX and IECEx, Zone 2 certification, enabling the latest generation portable vibration analyzer to be used in hazardous environments. The CSI 2140 collects all of the data required to assess a machine’s condition in the shortest possible time, so that the user can limit the time they need to be in hazardous environments.
ATEX and IECEx standards cover a range of technologies from power generation to marine energy and involve a detailed process of examination, testing, and assessment of equipment intended for use in potentially hazardous areas.
Emerson’s CSI 2140, which is already CSA approved for use in most industrial hazardous areas in the US and Canada, provides an early indication of bearing and gearbox defects before they can lead to machine outages. Its unique PeakVue™ signal processing methodology cuts through the complexity of machinery analysis to provide a simple, reliable indication of equipment health.
“These approvals certify the CSI 2140 for use in most hazardous areas,” says Tom E. Nelson, Emerson’s CSI 2140 senior technology manager. "But equally important is the speed with which the user can move through the hazardous zone and back to safer areas. Emerson is committed to providing our customers with the products and services that increase safety and uptime."
