Don’t trust your life and the lives of your employees to just anyone.

At Auto Control Systems, we understand the challenges hazardous areas present, challenges caused by overseas and local suppliers’ lack of knowledge.

  • Ex equipment needs Ex cable glands
  • You can’t have self-drilled holes in Ex boxes
  • You need certified plugs in the spare holes
  • Equipment certified for use in gas (Zone 0,1,2) doesn’t automatically qualify for use in dust (Zone 20,21,22)
