EAB10 Antenna Enclosure


The EAB10 antenna enclosure was developed specifically for our client, in order to provide a suitable ATEX compliant Zone 1 rated antenna to suit radio communications with instruments inside pipe lines. The product had to be light and a certain level of radio wave energy had to pass through the housing. The Ex protection type ā€˜eā€™ increased safety was chosen as the main type of explosion protection, which enabled the housing to be made of carbon enriched glass fibre. Various compositions of carbon powder and resin were produced and tested to meet the certification and functional criteria.
