Intrinsically Safe ALTA-ISX® Wireless Sensors Honored as Innovative IIoT Products
SALT LAKE CITY (April 19, 2022) – Monnit announced today that its ALTA-ISX® Wireless Sensors received the 2022 IoT Evolution Industrial IoT Product of the Year Award. A global, integrated media company TMC and its partner Crossfire Media announced the awards presented by IoT Evolution World magazine. The award honors the best, most innovative products and solutions powering the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
“We’re excited to be honored by experts in the Industrial Internet of Things—IoT Evolution World, backed by TMC and Crossfire Media,” said Monnit Founder and CEO Brad Walters. “The award is valuable validation of our commitment to helping protect industrial workers and facilities while collecting and delivering actionable condition monitoring data with our intrinsically safe ALTA-ISX Sensors.”
An Innovative Suite of IECEx-Certified Sensors
Monnit provides a growing IECEx-certified ALTA-ISX Wireless Sensors line that works safely in hazardous industrial environments within explosive atmospheres. IECEx is the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres.
Three ALTA-ISX Sensors are available—the Temperature and Dry Contact Sensors and the 300 PSIG Pressure Meter. By the end of 2022, Monnit will add three to six more sensors to its ALTA-ISX product line.
These ALTA-ISX Sensors are not only certified as intrinsically safe in explosive atmospheres of group IIA and hazardous Zone 1 environments, but they’re also:
- Incapable of causing a spark or reaching a temperature (class T3) that could ignite an explosive atmosphere comprising a range of group IIA gases or dust
- Able to be used in many industrial applications worldwide where combustible gases (group IIA) may be present in Zone 1 areas
