The revolutionary new tool is the first measuring device to be certified for use in explosive areas, making it ideal for use offshore and in the mining and petrochemical industries.
Securing ATEX, CSA and IECEx Zone 1IIC T4 accreditation means that it complies with stringent health and safety regulations and can be used offshore without obtaining ‘hot work’ permits.
The LaserMETER 3000XP has been expertly built to last, with a rugged industrial-grade construction. Encased in tough aluminium, it can withstand harsh environments and has simple operating functions to cater for workers in hazardous locations wearing protective kit and gloves.
The IP65 design incorporates shock resistant, anti-static over mould with interchangeable battery pack and backlit LCD display. It comes packed with features such as Pythagoras, area and volume calculations and can measure distances of up to 30m with an accuracy of 3mm.
At the HazardEx exhibition, CorDEX Instruments also launched its next generation of explosion proof digital camera – the ToughPIX 2300XP series.
The camera is smaller and lighter than previous models with fully automatic strobe flash, interchangeable lenses, digital zoom and red-eye reduction. It can capture still images in extreme, low light conditions. ToughPIX 2300XP Series is ATEX and American CSA certified to take images within Zone 1 IIC T4 and Class 1 Division I B, C, D hazardous areas.
