Power supply manufacturer PULS UK has enhanced the specification of a number of its units enabling them to obtain international IECEx approval.

IECEx approval allows the power supplies to be used in Class 1 Div 2 atmospheres in many territories across the globe. These units already comply with the European ATEX standard and the Class 1 Div 2 HazLoc scheme covering the US.

The IECEx Scheme was created to facilitate international trade in electrical equipment intended for use in hazardous atmospheres by eliminating the need for multiple national certification. The 26 countries covered by the scheme include the US, Australia, Canada, China, Brazil, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and, South Africa.
