flow sensors - hazardous areas

Many of the EGE flow sensors are approved for use in hazardous areas. Units are available
 for use in both Zone 1 and Zone 0 areas. Only sensors for which a certificate of conformity
 has been issued by the PTB can be used in Zone 0. The sensor and the corresponding
 amplifier must be approved as a functional unit. Switching amplifiers that are not mentioned
 on the certificate must not be used. Our experts can advise you on the correct choice. If
 sensors, or sensor cables need to be outdoors, a lightning protection unit must be installed.
 This accessory is inserted into the sensor line, between the sensor and the switching
 amplifier. It limits lightning-induced voltages on the sensor line and diverts them to earth.
 Intrinsically safe switching amplifiers have galvanic separation between the intrinsically safe
 and non intrinsically safe zones. The switching amplifier must always be mounted in the safe
