Chesterton Connect Intrinsically Safe Certified Sensor

Chesterton Connect™ Intrinsically Safe Certified Sensor
For Use in Most Gas and Dust Hazardous Environments

This version release of Chesterton’s IoT wireless monitoring product line is certified for use on equipment and structures in most hazardous environments dealing with high pressures, temperatures, and flammable liquids.  It is rated for Class 1/Division 1 (gas, vapor environments) and Class 2/Division 1 (dust environments) and IP66 for outdoor use.  Connect Intrinsically Safe Certified sensor is Chesterton's complete pump and seal remote monitoring system for use in these critical environments.

'Intrinsic Safety’ is the electrical protection that allows the sensor to be used in hazardous areas with either dust or gases that can ignite.  The sensor contains safety features within electronics that prevent the sensor from becoming a source for ignition. 

Using Bluetooth® technology and a robust design to withstand harsh environments, the Chesterton Connect Intrinsically Safe sensor makes it easy to monitor:

  • Equipment vibration
  • Process temperature
  • Process pressure
  • Surface temperature

Easy to install, Chesterton Connect combined with the user-friendly app allows you to connect to multiple sensors providing you with a comprehensive view of your plant’s equipment health. By setting thresholds, the mobile app and in-unit’s LED display system alerts you of undesirable events. This alert system helps you better allocate resources to avoid unplanned downtime and asset failure. The data can be exported for analysis to help you understand your equipment’s operation and take preventative actions to extend productivity.
