Hazardous Area Systems

Many manufacturing plants have potentially hazardous areas due to flammable liquids, gases or powders.  Such systems must be designed, built and installed correctly and in full compliance with the local regulations if the risk of a fire or explosion is to be removed.  At Optimal we have the skills, training and experience to allow us to design, manufacture and install systems in full compliance with the desired regulations – these usually being ATEX but occasionally for FM Approval.  We have experience with installations into all zone categories, with hazardous installations using traditional barrier techniques and/or suitable remote I/O equipment using a factory automation network.
