DFWIECEX weight indicator IECEx and ATEX certified – Zones 1/21 and 2/22

From: £1,444.00

The Dini Argeo DFWIECEX weight indicator represents the state of the art for weighing in environments with a high risk of explosion. Thanks to the RGB backlit display, to the powerful processor and above all to the main interfaces available, all intrinsically safe, DFWIECEX allows the integration of weighing within production processes, directly in hazardous areas, driving solenoid valves and communicating with PLCs and other devices. IECEx and ATEX certified and approved for legal-for-trade use.
