ATEX 4-20mA Load Cell Amplifier

Pre-release evaluation units are now available for a high performance ATEX amplifier for use in Hazardous Zones 0,1 & 2. Intrinsically safe to EN60079-11.

The high performance amplifier provides 2-wire 4-20mA current loop output and connects in-line for a range of signal conditioning for strain gauges, load cells, pressure and torque transducers. Intrinsically safe to EN60079-11 (previously EN 50020) standards.

The device can be connected to ATEX approved equipment within the hazardous zone or to non-approved ATEX equipment outside the hazardous zone provided that a suitable barrier is used.

Designed for fitting in-line to strain gauge sensors such as load cells, the amplifier is housed within a stainless steel IP67 NEMA 4 EMC protected enclosure and is supplied with 1m strain gauge cable and 5m output cable.

An OEM option is available for customers wishing to embed the ATEX amplifier within the sensor. Please note: the ICA5ATEX is approved for incorporation into load cells and other enclosures. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
