SolidSense II pressure transducers from Brooks Instruments are widely used in ultra-high-purity applications and now these products have received International Electrotechnical Commission (IECEx) certification.

The accreditation confirms that products are suitable for use in hazardous environments regulated for explosions caused by flammable liquids, vapor, gases or combustible dust. The approval certifies that SolidSense II pressure transducers have been manufactured under systems subject to ongoing inspections by IECEx certification bodies, assuring buyers of continuous conformance to this independently established, worldwide standard.

Widely used in semiconductor manufacturing for example, according to Brooks the IECx certification now makes it easier for engineers to spec them into gas cabinets, gas panels, valve manifold boxes and distribution valve boxes.

With full-scale pressure ranges from 0-30 psia to 0-3000 psig and a variety of electrical and mechanical options, SolidSense II pressure transducers are well suited to industrial applications that require highly reliable pressure measurement. They function as stand-alone transducers and function as integrated sensors in thousands of Brooks’ high-performance thermal mass flow controllers hard at work worldwide.

The International Electrotechnical Commission is a global conformity agency that prepares and publishes international standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies.
