Many industries require the radio equipment to be ATEX approved, particularly the off-shore and petrochemical industries where safety and reliability comes first. It is for these reasons that we have included ATEX approved radios on our hire fleet.

The Radio

DTS Solutions have selected the ever reliable Motorola radios for this specialised area. A variant of the hugely popular professional series, the ATEX version is built with a distinctive blue chassis to avoid any confusion when entering an explosive environment. The highly visible orange emergency button on the top of the radio activates the emergency procedure as defined by you, the user to work in conjunction with your existing safety procedures. It also has a specially designed battery connection to avoid non-ATEX batteries being fitted by mistake.

ATEX Directive 94/9/EC

This is the European Union directive to which all two-way radios must adhere if used in potentially explosive environments. This addition to Motorola Professional Series ATEX Portable Radios are approved to ATEX Protection Classes II 2 G Ex ib IIC T4, II 2D Ex tD A21 IP6x ib D21 T110°C, I M2 EEX ib I and IECEx as interpreted in the attached download.
