ATEX Approval for Optech Level Monitors

Toronto, Canada – Optech Incorporated is pleased to announce that its Sentry series of laser-based continuous non-contact process level monitors has been awarded ATEX certification for hazardous locations.

 Optech’s Sentry model SR is specifically designed to measure precise distances in industrial process applications from ranges up to 25 meters (about 80 feet). It comes complete with an explosion-proof enclosure bearing CSA, FM, CE and now, ATEX approvals. Two models (Clear Path and Dust and Vapour) are available to meet varying environmental requirements. The Sentry is completely non-intrusive and comes available with pre-packaged mounting kits for common flange sizes. Optional dust and contaminant purging hardware is available as well.

 “The new ATEX certification will help to extend our sales in the European Process Control Market,” says Brent Gelhar, Director Lidar Technology Products. “Obtaining ATEX certification is proof of Optech’s ongoing commitment to quality and reliability. As an international company with products used in over 100 countries around the globe, it is critical that Optech continues to set the industry standard for safety and performance,” adds Mr.Gelhar.

 Optech instruments are designed to perform in applications where location, environment or process characteristics can impede conventional technologies from operating reliably. Optech’s popular Sentinel and Watchman models are examples of such laser rangefinding instruments. They use reliable, pulsed time-of-flight laser rangefinders that are housed in rugged, industrial-grade enclosures.
