MILFORD, MA – Comark is pleased to announce that its Nematron branded line of ATEX Approved industrial computers and monitors will be IECEx certified by mid-2016. By implementing this certification, products certified under IECEx will be deemed to have been manufactured under processes that are monitored and audited by IECEx certification bodies. The end result of this process will allow Comark to utilize the IECEx Conformity Mark on its ATEX Approved products, which provides verification of those products as having met the international standards of safety in hazardous areas.
In April 2015, ATEX testing was completed on the Nematron branded iPC-Series and M-Series products which are assembled in the ISO9001 certified manufacturing facility in Milford, Massachusetts. These units bear the Ex mark and are certified for use in areas requiring ATEX Zone 2 and 22 compliance on all products.
“Once IECEx certification is obtained, Comark will have a robust selection of industrial automation panel computers, displays and nodes to choose from that carry multiple compliance approvals,” states Ralph Damato, VP of Product Management. “Adding IECEx certification to our ATEX Approved products greatly improves the global marketability of our certified industrial automation products.”
IECEx is an international standard by which industrial products are verified to be compliant with IEC international standards of safety in hazardous areas. The objective of the IECEx System is to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in explosive atmospheres, while maintaining the required level of safety; reduced testing and certification costs to manufacturer; reduced time to market; and international confidence in the product assessment process.
