Industrial Certification for Hazardous and Offshore Sites

Oil & gas facilities are faced with the constant risk of explosion and leakage that not only jeopardizes business operations, but also puts human lives in danger. For this reason, equipment and systems used in these settings must be held to rigid standards to guarantee the highest level of security and reliability.

Moxa’s industrial products are designed in strict accordance with globally accepted standards for explosion protection in hazardous locations. Approved certifications include UL/cUL Class I Division 2, ATEX Zone 2, IECEx, and DNV/GL/ABS/LR/NK.

Environmental Hazards
and Ratings

Class I Division 2 / ATEX Zone 2
Equipment in a hazardous location where ignitable concentrations of gases, vapors, or liquids are located (such as a pipeline) must be specially designed and tested to meet  Class I Division 2 / ATEX Zone 2 standards to avoid explosions. Moxa products have been tested for safe and reliable operation in hazardous locations in accordance with strict, internationally recognized UL/cUL Class 1 Division 2, and ATEX Zone 2 standards.

ATEX Zone 2 standards industrial certification

IECEx Certification

IECEx, the IEC system for certification to international standards related to equipment used in explosive atmospheres, is a new global compliance of industrial certification for the oil & gas industry. Moxa’s industrial serial device servers, media converters, and Ethernet gateways have obtained certifications to meet the required level of safety and quality for use in hazardous areas. All of these products must pass a rigorous battery of tests and quality assessment regimens before they can be awarded a certificate of conformity.

IECEx industrial certification

Maritime Certification

Offshore oil rigs and drilling platforms place high demands on their equipment since they are more likely to be exposed to a wide variety of environmental damage, such as salt mist and humidity. For this reason, equipment used in these settings must conform to maritime standards to provide the highest level of onsite security. The maritime standards, which include DNV, GL, ABS, LR, and NK for individual regions, confirm a device’s ability to withstand temperature, humidity, vibration, EMC, and other stresses, as well as its suitability for specific, well-defined classes of marine environments. Moxa’s industrial Ethernet and computing solutions have passed several marine certifications to guarantee the reliable and safe operation of equipment used on ships or at offshore sites.
