ATEX Power Supply Systems

MODELS AND TYPES OF ATEX Power Supply Systems :

SPA 130A and SPA 230 are solar modules with ATEX Classification on Categories 2 and 3, to be installed in potentially explosive atmospheres classified for Zone 1 and Zone 2.

The cells of the panel are encapsulated between a tempered glass cover and a back sheet from aluminium and polyester to provide maximum protection in the most extreme environmental conditions.

These panels have been designed for use in isolated hazardous areas where the installation of electrical mains supply is difficult.
