ABB Launch Tropos 1410-HAZ Communication Equipment

Press Release
Wednesday, August 08, 2012

ABB announce the Tropos 1410-HAZ wireless mesh router and wireless bridge, certified for use in hazardous environments.

Tropos 1410 wireless mesh routers and wireless bridges create secure, IP-based field area communication networks serving thousands of automation endpoints such as intelligent electrical devices, industrial process controllers and SCADA devices.

Designed to provide wireless communications for field automation applications, the Tropos 1410-HAZ is certified for use in Class I, Division 2 (US) and Class I, Zone 2 (US and Canada) hazardous locations. The certification allows, amongst others, the Tropos® 1410-HAZ to be deployed in locations such as the wellheads of oil and gas wells, oil and natural gas storage and processing facilities.

Class I, Division 2 (CID2) and Class I, Zone 2 hazardous locations are areas where – under abnormal conditions such as leaks – fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases, vapors or liquids. Electrical equipment used in hazardous locations must be designed and tested to verify that it will not cause an explosion due to sparking or high surface temperature.

The Tropos 1410-HAZ extends the application reach of the Tropos 1410 product line, allowing installation in potentially hazardous locations such as oil and gas wellheads for flow measurement and control, storage tanks for level sensing, natural gas gathering sites for gas composition and quality analysis, refineries and other industrial sites for video surveillance and pipelines for flow measurement, among others.

The Tropos 1410-HAZ comes in a ruggedized, weatherized enclosure suitable for use in extreme outdoor environments. ABB will begin accepting orders for Tropos 1410-HAZ wireless bridges and mesh routers on August 8, 2012.
