LVD Logo European Union LVD (2006/95/EC)
The Low Voltage Directive ensures that electrical equipment within certain voltage limits both provides a high level of protection. It covers electrical equipment with a voltage between 50 and 1000 V for alternating current and between 75 and 1500 V for direct current.
MCERTS Logo European Union MCERTS (2006/95/EC)
MCERTS is the European and U.K. Environment Agency’s Monitoring Certification to ensure the quality requirements for monitoring emissions into the environment. Receiving certification for this EU Directive ensures compliance that the instrumentation is suitable for use in waste incineration and large coal-fired combustion plant applications. The CEM is proven suitable for its measuring task (parameter and composition of the flue gas) by use of the QAL 1 procedure specified in EN14181, for LCPD/IED Chapter III and IED Chapter IV applications.
NAMUR Logo International NAMUR NE43
NAMUR (an international association of process instrumentation user companies) recommends a standardized signal level for transmitter failure. The measurement information range is 3.8 to 20.5 mA, with measurements below and above that range indicating failure information.
