SEATTLE, February 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- An explosion-proof distance laser meter from CorDEX Instruments, the LaserMETER 3000XP, is the first distance laser meter to achieve certification from CSA International, a leading product testing and certification organization, for use in Class I Division 1 B, C and D hazardous (explosive) areas. It adds to the meter's existing certifications, ATEX and IECEx Zone 1 IIC T4.
Laser distance meters are vital tools for plant and equipment maintenance, HVAC and safety professionals. The LaserMETER 3000XP is designed to deliver time-saving efficiencies and added safety to personnel working on high-risk rigs and installations who currently have to obtain special "hot work permits" to use standard electronic measuring devices.
"Those working in hazardous environments can't make a mistake. They require tools that are up to the challenge," said CorDEX Instruments General Manager Marcus Halliday. "You can't take an ordinary tool and jerry rig it to be adequate for these conditions. The CorDEX mission is to create products designed specifically to help work crews operate safely and efficiently in difficult environments. Watch for more CSA-tested equipment designed specifically for these environments as 2011 progresses."
