Semaphore Wireless Monitor Achieves ATEX Zone 1 Approval

LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwire - September 30, 2010) -  Semaphore, a CSE Global company, announces that the T-BOX WM Wireless Monitor has successfully passed all third party criteria and testing for operation in ATEX Zone 1 hazardous areas. Products with this approval are now shipping from the factory.

The ultra-low-power, battery-operated Wireless Monitor is ideal for installation in remote areas in which it supervises assets in the chemical, environmental, oil & gas, transportation, utility, and water / wastewater industries. This new approval significantly 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.

Using push messaging via e-mail, text, or IP communications, the Wireless Monitor best 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 rugged package. It leverages easy-to-use Web technologies and inexpensive public networks for decentralized monitoring and control systems. T-BOX products offer up to 50% less total installed cost per point versus traditional SCADA/ PLC systems and permit greater organizational access to data through automated reporting and browser software.

Semaphore's T-BOX RTU products are ideal for a broad range of monitoring and control applications in the broadcast, infrastructure management, oil & gas, power, transportation and water treatment and distribution industries.
