X300 Ex ATEX & IECEx Rated C-Cell Transmitter Family (12" and larger)

 

Multi-Frequency TRAXALL Transmitter

The X300-Ex family are CDI's largest TRAXALL compatible and fully explosion-proof ATEX rated electromagnetic transmitters. This family consists of four transmitters which house 2, 3, 4 or 5 C-Cell batteries. These transmitters have both user-adjustable frequency and output power through the use of CDI's FieldLink wireless communications system. Using CDI's TRAXALL transmitters, an operator may have direct control over battery life vs. field strength tradeoffs. Short pig runs can go for maximum power and long pig runs can be more conservative by using pulsing modes and/or reduced power.

 

ATEX Compliant

The X300-Ex family of transmitters are ATEX rated for use in Zone 1 explosive environments. Beyond their ATEX certification and minor mechanical differences, the X300 transmitters are functionally the same as the non-ATEX versions.
