ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres:


1) Directive 99/92/EC (also known as 'ATEX 137' or the 'ATEX Workplace Directive') on minimum requirements for improving the health and safety protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres. 



2) Directive 94/9/EC (also known as 'ATEX 95' or 'the ATEX Equipment Directive') on the approximation of the laws of Members States concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. 

Explosive atmospheres can be caused by flammable gases, mists or vapours or by combustible dusts. If there is enough of the substance, mixed with air, then all it needs is a source of ignition to cause an explosion.

Explosions can cause loss of life and serious injuries as well as significant damage. Preventing releases of dangerous substances, which can create explosive atmospheres, and preventing sources of ignition are two widely used ways of reducing the risk. Using the correct equipment can help greatly in this.

The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) place duties on employers to eliminate or control the risks from explosive atmospheres in the workplace. A summary of those requirements can be found below.

Our range of ATEX certified products include:
 * Capacitive and inductive proximity sensors in various size.
* NAMUR sensors and proximity sensors with NPN or PNP transistor output.

* Available with Ex-protected barriers and amplifiers.



The ATEX-certified units are available for areas with danger of gas explosion (Zone 0,1 and 2) and for areas with danger of dust explosion (Zone 20, 21 and 22). 


The Rechner IA0269 Inductive Sensor is ideal for the Marine, Offshore, Distilling and Malting sectors due to the durable Stainless Steel casing and IP67 rating.


The Rechner KA0342 Capactive Sensor is perfect for Distilling and Malting applications for example Still House Froth Detection (As demonstrated in our video presentation

Rechner "All-In-One"

Fit and Forget - A highly cost effective, reliable solution
Innovative ideas
Ongoing development since 1974

Rechner’s All-In-One range is the perfect choice as it can be interfaced to the existing control but also has ATEX certification for detection in the ATEX rated zones for DUST Zone 20 and GAS Zone 1.

An intelligent solution
Offering a 'fit and forget' experience

The Rechner All-In-One products achieve protection by encapsulation including a non-replaceable fuse. These ATEX certified devices come in capacitive as well as inductive formats for direct PNP or NPN system connection.

Capacitive
Adjustable for ongoing applications

Capacitive All-In-One devices have a wide portfolio of shapes and sizes from the compact M18, G1/2” up to G1”, M32, including Tri-Clamp options, for both Flush and Non-Flush sensors Rechner’s successful 26 Series.

Inductive
Set with measuring distance for dependable operation

Inductive All-In-One sensors are available in
M12, M18 and M30 Flush configurations.

The All-In-One series of ATEX Certified sensors offer reliable and cost effective performance made to the highest standards by  the most experienced supplier of certified sensors for explosion applications on the market, Rechner.


There is no need to connect to a Zener barrier as the certification is ensured by encapsulation and with the use of a fuse -

the All-In-One range can dramatically reduce your installation outlay and, being Solid State with no moving parts, is optimised to be self contained with minimal maintenance - providing a truly fit and forget experience.
