Control Logic releases IECEx approved safe radio controllers from Jay Electronique

Control Logic introduces a new range of radio remote controls from Jay
Electronique with IECEx approvals.

The SAFIR range of radio remote controls from Jay Electronique has now achieved
IECEx approvals on the Moka handheld control and the Alto transceiver, allowing
use in potentially explosive gas atmospheres classified zone 0, 1, 2, or dust
classified zones 20, 21, 22. These IECEx approved radio remote controllers can also
be utilised in mining applications requiring IECEx certification.

The new models incorporate all the existing features of the SAFIR family
such as a backlit, anti-reflection LCD display capable of indicating the battery
charge level, the behaviour of the radio link, the name of the equipment being
controlled remotely, and feedback from the equipment such as weight of load,
overload, limit switches, alarms or fault diagnostics.

Navigation menus allow the application to be configured, a large number
of functions to be integrated, and a specific part of the equipment to be
monitored. Logos and pictograms appearing on the screen can be further
customised utilising the iDialog software supplied with each unit.

Safety functions in the SAFIR range of radio remote controls include emergency
