Moxa’s Industrial Ethernet Gateways Pass IECEx Certification

Taipei, Taiwan, July 2, 2013—Moxa is pleased to announce that several of its industrial Ethernet gateways and industrial serial device servers have passed IECEx certification, which stipulates the required level of safety and quality needed for use in hazardous locations. IECEx is an international conformity assessment scheme that covers electrical equipment used in explosive atmospheres, and is the internationally accepted means of demonstrating conformity with IEC standards.

In hazardous environments with an explosive atmosphere, ignition sources such as electric sparks, electrostatic discharges, and high temperatures, may cause an explosion. Products that will be used in such environments should be certified by international certifications such as IECEx, which certifies that products will not act as an ignition source. The circuit design, components, and manufacturing process are all reviewed in detail during the certification process.
