Hazardous Areas

Where We Work

Hazardous Areas

Hazardous locations and electronics are a dangerous mixture. We supply systems rated and approved to standards required in these areas.

ATEX Directives and Certifications

Explosions can cause significant damage, severe injury, or worse, loss of life. To prevent explosions from happening in harsh environments, where flammable gases or combustible dust are present, directives and guidelines are put in place to protect the public, workforce, and environment.

The USA and the European Union have their certifications and guidelines to control the risks of igniting dangerous substances. This article defines explosive atmospheres, summarises the regulations in the USA and the European Union, and demonstrates Industrial Computers, Panel PCs and Data Acquisition hardware certified for installation in explosive atmospheres.

Systems for Hazardous Locations

The Oil and Gas markets are always looking to push the boundaries of technology to explore the depths of the earth for much-needed energy resources. To achieve this, they must employ the latest computer technology, often requiring systems to work in the harshest environments, making our products ideal for these applications.

Assured Systems has over a decade of experience selling industrial and embedded solutions to customers involved in oil and gas exploration, extraction, petrochemical processing, supply, maintenance, and other associated applications. Whether it's a touchscreen HMI running SCADA software, a rackmount computer measuring digital and analogue I/O, a rugged tablet PC for field maintenance, or an embedded computer system for controlling a drill head, we have the solution.
