SIL2 Certified 4-20 Pressure Transmitters with Hazardous Location

American Sensor Technologies Offers SIL2 Certified 4-20 Pressure Transmitters with Hazardous Location Ratings for Upstream/Downstream Applications
By: American Sensor Technologies
MT. OLIVE, N.J. - Dec. 19, 2014 - PRLog -- American Sensor Technologies ( (AST) has received SIL2 certification for its 4-20mA pressure transmitters with hazardous location ratings including explosion-proof, intrinsically safe and non-incendive areas. The SIL (Safety Integrity Level) certification was conducted through Exida and meets IEC 61508 standards.

The following products are available in SIL2 configurations:

•          AST4300 ( Non-Incendive Pressure Transmitters

•          AST43LP ( Non-Incendive Pressure Sensor, Class 1 Div 2 Groups A, B, C, D

•          AST4400 ( Intrinsically Safe Pressure Transmitter

•          AST4401 ( Intrinsically Safe Pressure Transmitter, Groups A and B

•          AST44LP ( Class 1, Div. 1 Intrinsically Safe, Low Pressure Transmitter

•          AST4500/4510 ( Submersible Pressure Sensor, Intrinsically Safe, Class I Div 1, Groups C and D

•          AST4520 ( Flush Diaphragm, Non-Clogging Level Sensor/Transmitter

•          AST4530 ( Submersible Pressure Transducer for Chemical Tank Level

•          AST4600 ( Explosion Proof Pressure Transmitters, CSA Class 1, Div. 1

The SIL process and rating simplify what systems use to predict failure and system maintenance. SIL2 devices were traditionally used in the downstream oil and gas and chemical process industry, but have seen greater importance in upstream applications to ensure safety and reliability requirements are met.
