ATEX antennas for U.S. Offshore and Refineries

Although the price of oil remains stubbornly low, safety is still a critical component in the oil exploration and production process.

To meet stringent safety requirements and to ensure critical communications, Procom has developed a line of ATEX certified antennas. These antennas were originally designed for use by a major producer in the North Sea.  Now they are available in the U.S.A.

ATEX antennas are specifically designed for use in hazardous environments such as oil refineries, offshore platforms, FPSO vessels, drill ships and tankers. The Procom/APN ATEX antenna portfolio consists of more than 25 different ATEX antenna types, all based on ATEX directive 94/9/EC. Models include unity gain Airband VHF, Marine band VHF and UHF, Wi-Fi 2.4Ghz antennas and GPS L1 passive antennas suitable for timing applications.

Procom ATEX radio antennas are shipped with the rugged ‘LW’ integral antenna mount and hardware. All items are shipped with any necessary grounding kits and also a certificate of conformity.
