Emerson’s CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer has been certified for Class II, Division 2, Groups (F, G), reportedly making it the only portable vibration analyzer on the market that can be used in hazardous combustible dust environments.

Emerson’s CSI 2140, which is ATEX and IECEx Zone 2, and Class I, Division 2 Groups (A, B, C, D) certified, is approved for use in most industrial hazardous areas in the U.S. and Canada. The CSI 2140 provides an early indication of bearing and gearbox defects before they can lead to machine outages, according to the company. Its PeakVue signal processing methodology provides an indication of equipment health.

Class II, Division 2 certification covers a range of industries from grain processing, food production, chemical manufacturing, recycling facilities, and coal-fired power plants.
