ATEX Batteries for Hazardous Environments

What are ATEX Batteries?

Batteries that power equipment in hazardous and potentially explosive environments must meet the highest safety standards. There are two sets of standards to certify this. The more commonly referenced ATEX 214 Certification- European Union Directive 2014/34/EU (replaced Directive 94/9/EC), is valid in the EU and covers electrical and non-electrical equipment. The IECEx standard is only intended for electrical equipment and aims for global acceptance.

Both ATEX and IECEx certify the equipment’s safe use in Hazardous and potentially explosive atmospheres, ensuring the operator the highest level of protection.

To pass the certification, cells need to be “intrinsically safe” (IS) and must not produce sparks or release electrical or thermal energy, even when abused (for example short circuited).

We stock a range of Lithium Thionyl Chloride batteries that are certified as intrinsically safe, off the shelf. This makes them a popular choice to designers of ATEX/IECEx equipment. If the product requires a higher voltage, capacity or additional components, a custom battery pack is the best option.
