New range of vibration sensors are intrinsically safe

Hansford Sensors Ltd. have launched the new range of ATEX and IEC Ex certified, intrinsically safe vibration sensors as an additional choice to the existing HS-100 Series of industrial accelerometers.

This range of sensors is for use in applications where the environment contains inflammable gases, fumes, chemicals, powders, dust etc., as found in many industries such as mining, gas production, paints, petrochemical, offshore, pharmaceutical.

They will allow engineers to monitor vibration levels of pumps, fans, compressors, motors, conveyors, drilling rigs and all types of rotating machinery, which are in a potentially explosive working environment.

Monitoring vibration levels with off or online data collectors on critical plant allows maintenance engineers to be aware when corrective procedures are needed to maintain maximum production efficiency or avoid costly shut-downs.

The new HS-100 sensors are sealed to a minimum of IP67 and can be used in both Group I (Mining) and Group II (Petrochemical) applications. With their construction in stainless steel and ability to withstand tough operating conditions, the sensors offer reliability, optimum performance and long service.

Available in both top and side entry, the sensors have either integral cable or connector, including the NEW M12 version now widely used in industry and chosen by Hansford Sensors for its flexibility and performance. Waterproof options are available for submerged use up to 100 metres and various mounting choices exist with threaded, magnetic and ‘Quick-Fit’ studs.

Visitors to the company’s website at can view the complete sensors range and the various certificates awarded for the intrinsically safe operation.

Hansford Sensors have also applied for certification for their range of HS-420 vibration sensors with 4-20mA outputs, ideal for direct connection to PLC’s. It is hoped that this new series will be available in around two months time.
