Semaphore’s T-BOX WM Wireless Monitor passed all third party criteria and testing for operation in ATEX Zone 1 hazardous areas.
The ultra-low-power, battery-operated Wireless Monitor works in remote areas in which it supervises assets in the chemical, environmental, oil & gas, transportation, utility, and water/wastewater industries. This new approval expands the applications for the compact, Wireless Monitor integrated package.
ATEX Zone 1 approval allows the wireless monitor to operate in an atmosphere where a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapor, or mist is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally. Typical locations are those in natural gas measurement installations as well as certain water/wastewater processes such as digesters and sewer lines.

The ultra-low-power, battery-operated T-BOX WM Wireless Monitor successfully passed testing for operation in ATEX Zone 1 hazardous areas.

Using push messaging via e-mail, text, or IP communications, the Wireless Monitor utilizes inexpensive, public networks and informs multiple recipients of alarms, live conditions, and historical data logs.
The Wireless Monitor is fully compatible with Semaphore’s T-BOX family of controller and RTU products. T-BOX is the first IP-based telemetry solution that enables the complete integration of SCADA systems, control, and communications functionality in one package. It leverages Web technologies and public networks for decentralized monitoring and control systems.
