ATEX & IECEx-certified hydrocarbon sensing cables

TTK offers a full range of ATEX & IECEx-certified addressable hydrocarbon sensing cables. They comply with stringent regulations for being installed in explosive environments and hazardous locations.

What is ATEX?

ATEX is an abbreviation of ATmosphere EXplosives, a term that appears in the name of European Directive 2014/34/EU, which concerns devices used in explosive atmospheres.


What is the difference between ATEX & IECEx?

The main difference is geography. While ATEX is a mandatory application limited to Europe, IECEx is an international certification accepted in other countries/regions.


What are Zone 0, 1, and 2?

They are the classification of zones ATEX/IECEx :

◾️ Zone 0 – Explosive mixtures are permanently present.  TTK hydrocarbon sensing cables are designed for and can be installed in zone 0.

◾️ Zone 1 – Explosive mixtures are present intermittently. 

◾️ Zone 2 – Explosive mixtures are present abnormally or infrequently.
