Weighing in Hazardous Areas

Learn about different hazardous-area weighing systems, data integration, configurations and their benefits

As a quantitative measure, weighing results may be statistically analyzed, archived, tracked / traced, integrated into control systems and used for control feedback loops.

To ensure safe operation in potentially explosive environments, weighing system components must have an appropriate level of protection. Furthermore, weighing signals must be safely and quickly communicated to the control system in the safe area.

This paper takes a closer look at a range of typical weighing system configurations for hazardous areas and their benefits which include enhanced safety, reduced liability / costs, easier tracking / tracing, and better overall productivity.
