The ROSEN Group has developed a new generation of ATEX certified instruments for tool localization in the ROSEN Technology & Research Center in Lingen, Germany.
The ROSEN Group has developed a new generation of ATEX certified instruments for tool localization in the ROSEN Technology & Research Center in Lingen, Germany. To localize and track inspection or cleaning tools during their run, they are usually either equipped with an ITX Transmitter or with strong magnets, whose fields penetrate the pipe wall or magnetize it. The signals of the ITX Transmitter or the magnetic fields can be received by a receiver outside the pipeline.
Today ATEX certification is an essential requirement if a product is to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres. The certification must be provided by a recognized certification body. These bodies check and verify on the one hand, whether the design is in compliance with current standards. On the other hand, statutory tests are performed. The ROSEN ATEX EPD (EPD - Electronic Tool Detector) has this assessment and all tests were successfully completed and documented by a EC-Certificate of Conformity.
The new ATEX EPD combines essential features of previous receivers. In addition, the partially very weak electromagnetic fields can be displayed on an LCD display with the ATEX EPD, improving the readability of the received signals significantly. The new ATEX EPD is a completely revised and expanded device.
The following list summarizes the key features of the new ATEX EPD:
• ITX Transmitter Locating
• ITX and MFL Tracking
• Yoke Detection
• ATEX and IEC Ex Compliance
• Graphic LCD Display, GPS, Bluetooth
The first devices were already successfully used in Mexico and Colombia and customers are showing great interest.
