Emerson Process Management has expanded the application of its CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter with intrinsic safety ratings to standards for the United States, Canada and Europe.

With the Class I, Div 1 and ATEX Zone 0 ratings, the CSI 9420 can now be installed to any machine directly in hazardous areas such as chemical, petrochemical and offshore facilities, as well as other explosion-classified environments.

Supplementing hazardous area ratings to the Brazilian and IECEx standard, its safety ratings extend the benefit of wireless technology to new areas of the plant. The CSI 9420 also provides insights into the condition of pumps, fans and other assets located in hazardous areas without running cables.
