The XTran XTD-2110-A node has officially secured ATEX approval

We are thrilled to announce that our most compact XTran node, the XTD-2110-A, has officially secured ATEX approval! This significant achievement underscores our unwavering commitment to safety, quality and excellence. 

It is important to use ATEX-approved equipment to protect yourself from equipment-related explosions. This equipment must meet the technical requirements for the types of zone you wish to use it in. ATEX standards are regulated by European directives and specific equipment markings. ATEX stands for ATmosphère EXplosive (explosive atmosphere).

The XTD-2110-A is meticulously designed to meet the highest safety and efficiency standards. With its ATEX approval, it is now recognized as safe for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, adhering to the essential health and safety requirements. This accomplishment is more than just a validation of our product's reliability and safety; it opens doors to new possibilities in industries where safety in explosive atmospheres is paramount.

With the help of TXCare, the XTran Network Management System, customers have the ability to oversee their critical network from the safety of the control room, even in hazardous areas. This offers an additional layer of safety for individuals.
