Our Speed Sensors

Certified Sensors for Hazardous Environments

Motion Sensors offers both Intrinsically Safe and Explosion Proof (flameproof) pickups certified by ATEX and IECEx for use in hazardous environments. These sensors comply with the essential health and safety requirements relating to the design and construction of equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

The Intrinsically Safe and Explosion Proof certifications held by MSI also allows for customization of an existing sensor, allowing our customers to avoid the time and costs associated with identifying and testing an alternative. Custom sensors can be provided for applications that require one unit up to thousands of units; with lead-times of weeks versus months.

CSA (with NRTL/C) Certified »

MSI's Intrinsically Safe speed sensors are certified to CSA (with NRTL/C) which means they have been evaluated to applicable ANSI/UL and CSA Standards for use in the United States and Canada.

NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory) is a designation granted by the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to laboratories which have been recognized to perform certification to United States Standards.
