ABB lighting for hazardous area applications now officially INMETRO and EAC certified

March 11, 2016 - ABB is synonymous with innovative, market leading technology, providing highly regarded electrical products, services and expertise to businesses across a diverse spectrum of industries and sectors. Central to this success has been our ability to deliver solutions that can be implemented anywhere throughout the world, a vital requirement in today’s globalised workplace.

How do we achieve this? By meeting – and regularly surpassing – the world’s most trusted regulatory standards, approvals and certifications - essential requirements that specifiers, engineers and electrical contractors depend on when deciding which components and products to use to make their building vision become reality.

The trust ABB electrical products engender is second to none, no more so than for hazardous area applications. At ABB we continually strive to ensure our complete hazardous area offering meets the standards necessary to provide businesses with a truly global solution. That’s why we’re proud to announce that our DTS lighting, emergency lighting and enclosures for hazardous area apps is now officially INMETRO and EAC certified. These certifications, along with our long established ATEX, IECEx, UL, and CSA approvals now means that ABB hazardous area lighting and enclosure products offer a single supplier solution in the global workplace.

For example, our explosion-proof XFFL LED tubular fitting can be used in Brazil (INMETRO) just as easily as in Russia (EAC), Europe (ATEX), North and Central America (CSA and UL), the Middle East (UL), China (PCEC), Africa (IECEx) and Australia (IECEx). Along with our unrivalled reputation for quality and reliability, our comprehensive worldwide approvals are a fundamental reason why so many global businesses choose ABB hazardous area products.
