IECEx develops app to identify devices in explosive atmospheres
May 4, 2013 – IECEx—the IEC System for Certification to Standards relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres—has launched the first mobile application to show international certificates for equipment used in explosive atmospheres. A person in the field can now look at a piece of installed equipment, and the app will provide them with the ability to confirm there is a valid certificate for the apparatus on the IECEx online Certificate System. This free app of the IECEx online Certificate System—for iOS, Android tablets and smart phones—can be found at the Apple App Store and Google Play. It installs a simplified version of the main IECEx online Certificate System covering Certified Ex Equipment, and allows the user to synchronize the Ex Mobile App with the IECEx online Certificate System, as required. The offline mode provides advanced search capability and CoC (Certificate of Conformity) abstracts (simplified details), while the online version gives the full details of CoC.
