The dBadge 2 noise dosemeter has ATEX and IECEx approval for use in hazardous and potentially explosive atmospheres. This I.S. design and approval make it ideal for use in the oil, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and mining industries.
These approvals apply to the Intrinsically Safe version for the dBadge noise dosemeter. These are identified by the letters "IS" in the order code, as described in the Order Codes section on this page.
With regard to noise measurement functionality, the Intrinsically Safe version of dBadge 2 is identical to the standard version. It measures all the same acoustic parameters, displays the same information and has the same data storage. It is completely compatible with the standard version, so you can have a mix of I.S. approved and standard versions, keeping the I.S. ones for use in the areas with a hazardous atmosphere.
The order codes for the Intrinsically Safe version of the dBadge all contain the letters "IS". They are shown in the ordering and pricing boxes at the top and bottom of this page.
The kit codes are DB2ISKx, where x indicates the number of intrinsically safe dosemeters that are included.
Only the noise dosemeter and its direct attachments (mounting devices) are approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
None of the additional items such Charger or Calibrator are approved, so all tasks such as charging and calibrating the dBadge should be done outside the hazardous area.
Kits contain dBadge2 Dosemeters, Calibrator, Dock/Charger, Peli Case and Software.
Kits with 1, 2, 3 and 5 dBadges have one 3-way charger. Kits with 10 dBadges have two 3-way chargers.
