ETL approvals

ETL certification is obtained from Intertek and satisfies requirements of the National Electrical Code (NEC) in the United States and the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) in Canada. The certification classifies the systems as non-incendive, allowing installation in both Division 2 / Zone 2 hazardous areas and non-hazardous areas.  It also allows the system’s sensors to be installed in a more restrictive Div 1 / Zone 1 / Zone 0 location when used with appropriate intrinsic safety barriers or isolators between the SETPOINT system and its connected sensors.

ATEX/IECEx approvals

ATEX (Europe) and IECEx (Global) approvals for the SETPOINT system are currently pending and expected later in First Quarter, 2013.  These approvals are also being coordinated by Intertek, an accredited CBTL (Certified Body Testing Laboratory) for ATEX and IECEx certification.

About SETPOINT™

The SETPOINT system was first announced in October 2010 at the A&M turbomachinery show in Houston. It began shipping to customers in July 2011 and to date has been sold to customers in more than 40 countries. The SETPOINT system features an industry-first integral touchscreen display with intuitive graphics inspired by Apple® iTouch®, iPod®, and iPad® portable devices. The system also eliminates the need for special power supplies by using the 24 Vdc instrument power readily available in most plants, thereby reducing heat in the rack and improving reliability. It introduces innovative front-access wiring connections that make it considerably easier to install and service than rear-access systems. For retrofit applications, its footprint is sized to exactly fit the industry’s most commonly installed systems, ensuring existing cutouts and panels can be reused along with existing wiring.
