We specialise in developing and manufacturing ATEX, IECEx, and North American certified equipment for use in hazardous areas, and rugged industrial products for harsh environments.
Efficiency, productivity, and worker safety are critical aspects to support a wide variety of production activities over a range of facility types seen in the chemicals industry.
Extronics has supported the chemicals industry since we were founded in 1992. Since then, we have developed a range of hazardous area solutions that allow our customers to work Smart, stay Safe and remain Connected.
How we support the chemicals industry
There are many hazardous area use cases found in the chemicals industry. Here are just a few examples of how we can support you with yours.
Chemical sites can vary and often present a varied landscape, making it difficult to navigate in the event of an evacuation. It is critical to have clear oversight of who is mustered safely and who is not. Extronics RTLS (Real Time Location Systems) provides a proven hazardous area automatic mustering solution using the proven Mobileview visibility platform. See exactly who has been mustered and who has not without the need for manual registers or walkie talkies to communicate between muster zones.
Ensuring you know exactly where key assets are and what you have in your inventory saves time and increases operational efficiency. Extronics RTLS solutions can help you find key assets quicker, whilst providing critical information to help manage asset utilisation. Whether it is parts, tools, rented assets, materials or even complete inventory, easily and accurately find what you need to get the job done.
Extronics know how important a robust hazardous area wireless network is to accessing all your IoT sensor data, provide remote worker connectivity, support RTLS use cases and gain critical data to improve operational efficiency. Extronics has been providing hazardous area wireless solutions for over 15 years and specialise in wireless applications. Our purpose built iWAP range of vendor agnostic hazardous area wireless enclosures has been specifically designed to support hazardous area wireless in Zone 1/ Div 1 and Zone 2 Div 2 areas.
Where mains power is not an option, solar can be a viable alternative. Extronics offers solar powered solutions for your wireless connectivity, back-up power, and battery requirements. Fully certified Ex solar panels can be configured to match your requirements.
