August 28, 2012 - Emerson Process Management obtained  intrinsic safety ratings to US, Canadian, and European standards for the  CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter. With the Class I, Div 1 and ATEX Zone 0 ratings, the CSI 9420 can now be installed directly in hazardous areas such as chemical, petrochemical, and off-shore facilities as well as other explosion-classified environments. The CSI 9420 connects quickly, easily, and economically to any machine. The safety ratings, which are in addition to existing hazardous area ratings to the Brazilian and IECEx standards, further extend the benefit of wireless technology to new areas of the plant. The CSI 9420 provides key insights into the condition of pumps, fans and other assets located in hazardous areas without the expense of running cables. "Our focus is to help our users make better, more informed decisions about their key production assets," said Ron Martin, vice president/general manager of Emerson’s Asset Optimization and Lifecycle Care business. "The strength of our wireless technologies married with our machinery health expertise gives users the ability to get information that leads to timely, accurate decisions—decisions that can have profound impact on the availability and performance of their facility."
