ATEX / IECEx approvals for a safe environment

Especially on offshore platforms which extract oil and gas it is essential to also consider products which are ATEX / IECEx certified for use within hazardous area environments. This is to ensure no harm is caused to people who work and live on these structures. RS offer a huge range of approved products from leading brands across many technologies.

IP marking and corrosion resistance

In some areas of marine and offshore ATEX approvals or special ship builder certificates are not neccessary. However, to ensure long lifetime and electrical safety of the equipment it is recommended to consider corrosion resistant material and/or products with a certain IP rating.

RS offers thousands of products from different technology areas which come with IP ratings up to IP69K. There is also a wide field of corrosion resistant materials like stainless steel or brass available which allow maintenance engineers and buyers to select the most suitable product for their application.
