IECEx and ATEX certified robots

All robots supplied by ExRobotics are certified for use in IECEx and ATEX Zone 1 areas

  • A Zone 1 area is classified as a place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air or flammable substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally.
  • IECEx is an international standard that covers many countries around the World.
  • ATEX is the European equivalent of that standard.
  • In the future we intend to certify our robots for onshore USA (CSA), Russia and Eurasian Economic Union (EAU) and Brazil (INMETRO).
  • They’re currently certified for use in temperatures between -40C and +55C. We plan to increase this range to -40C to +60C.
  • They’re certified for IIB environments (ethylene and similar) and have a temperature class of T4 (maximum surface temperature 135C). We plan to include IIC environments (hydrogen and acetylene) in the future. 
  • Although the robots are rated IP54 (dust protected , splashing water resistant) the individual modules within the robot are water-proof. The robot can be deployed in torrential rain, snow, and very high humidity conditions.
