The IECEx Scheme, The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) System for global certification to standards for electrical equipment in hazardous locations, plays an important role in the global certification of hazardous location equipment. The Scheme seeks to simplify and advance the export of equipment through its harmonized international standards, facilitating global trade and international growth in hazardous locations like oil and gas sites.
It is a certification system which verifies compliance with IEC international standards relating to safety in hazardous areas. It covers equipment, service facilities and the competency of personnel. IECEx provides an internationally accepted means of proving compliance with these standards and means products can be supplied to the market without the need for additional tests.
All our TX47XX range of products are all certified to IECEx Standards. The TX4799 FPSO Slip Ring was our first IECEx-certified slip ring, which was approved in February 2008.
