We have over 20 years experience working with many customers, and have acquired the knowledge, people, systems required and strict manufacturing controls to ensure all products are assembled in line with various certification requirements.
Our Quality Management System is ISO 9001 certified by a UKAS accredited certification body.
As a subcontractor we currently build product which is required to comply with our customer’s SIRA certification in relation to European Directive 94/9/EC also known as the ATEX directive.
Connect-2 Technology was awarded this prestigious contract due to our expertise and the levels of skill demonstrated by our technicians and production workforce, together with our ability and commitment to invest in the required levels of stock and equipment required. This further demonstrates our commitment to develop the skills and abilities of our 'special projects division' as well as the company's enthusiasm for expanding the broad range of solutions we provide our customers.
The ATEX Directive, derived from the French "ATmospheres EXplosibles" and known as 94/9/EC, contains the Essential Safety Requirements (ESR) to which electrical equipment and protective systems used within potentially explosive atmospheres must conform.
The latest ATEX directive currently in place within the European Union was made mandatory on 1st July 2003. Primarily intended for manufacturers of hazardous area equipment for use in the presence of flammable gases, vapours, fumes or dusts, the new directive requires a quality management system to be implemented. Procedures for the design, manufacture and verification of products are to be approved by a notified body (i.e. Sira, Baseefa 2000, CESI, Demko, Kema) and all equipment conforming to the new directive will feature Ex and CE marking.
