After months of rigorous testing, Measurement Technology Northwest is proud to announce that its flagship display, the LCI-90i, has been approved by Underwriters Laboratories for use in Hazardous Class I, Division 2, T5, Group A, B, C, and D hazardous locations.

Monitoring applications in the Oil and Gas industries and many other fields require equipment to be installed in areas where even a small spark inside electrical equipment could cause an explosion due to build-up of flammable gases. Over the years we have received many requests from current and prospective customers to develop a display that meets the demanding standards of this rating for electrical devices operating in hazardous areas.

Whether the LCi-90i is configured for winch, pump, crane, or tank weighing applications, the display is certified. No additional zener or isolating barriers are required; field sensors wire directly into the back of the unit.   By qualifying in these new segments of the monitoring and control market, MTNW can bring the accuracy of their displays and software to new areas and enable operators and crews to operate safely.
