Hazardous Area Certified Devices

Transtek are a market leader in providing mobility and calibration devices and solutions designed for Australian production and maintenance personnel working in potentially hazardous gas and dust environments.

Our range covers the following applications:

  • Communication
    Intrinsically safe mobile phones, headsets and speaker mics
  • Information Technology
    Ex rated cameras, PC's, tablets, handheld computers and scanners
  • Portable Lighting
    Hazardous area certified torches, headlamps, inspection lamps and area lighting systems
  • Testing & Inspection
    Intrinsically safe pressure test devices, multimeters, thermometers, thickness gauges, distance meters, etc.

Electrical and electronic devices must be modified and then certified as 'safe' before they can be used where potentially hazardous gas or dust may be present. The demand in the industry is to work smarter and more efficiently, and while mobile technology offers these benefits, it's easy to disregard the dangers that these devices pose when used in proximity to combustible gas or dust. In Australia, we see and hear of issues overseas and often think, "It couldn't happen here..." but the following pictures prove differently...
