Hazardous Area Accreditation

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.

In an industry where one mistake can result in disaster, it is important to have people you can trust to design, certify and install your electrical equipment. Explosive atmospheres require competent, educated people.

Auto Control Systems are specialists in:

  • Hazardous area classification
  • Hazardous area design
  • Hazardous area installation

We constantly find the following mistakes and challenges when we come to site:

  • ATEX equipment not suitable for use in Australia (without a Conformity Assessment Document)
  • Intrinsically safe equipment (Exi) is no use if you don’t have a barrier
  • 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)
