HSI Sensing expands high performance Hazardous Location Sensors product line

HSI Sensing receives UL 1203 certification for new product line

HSI Sensing, an Oklahoma-based manufacturer of custom reed switch and sensor technology, recently announced its robust Hazardous Location Industrial Control Sensors product line is expanding to include sensors such as standard magnetic sensors and latching switches. HSI Sensing previously had one sensing product type under the line, Spot On, a leverless limit switch that activates in the presence of ferrous metal or steel. The company will now have magnetic, steel and latching options available to complete the product line.

The entire Hazardous Location Sensors line has been UL 1203, Class 1, Division 1 listed. The line recently became ATEX IECEx certified, allowing the company the opportunity to continue serving customers throughout Europe. UL 1203 is the UL Standard for Safety Explosion-Proof and Dust-Ignition-Proof Electrical Equipment for Use in Hazardous (Classified) Locations. HSI first received the UL 1203 certification in 2015 with the Spot On technology.

“We are excited to introduce this new, expanded line to our customers,” said Ryan Posey, CEO of HSI Sensing. “This line of products is innovative and stands out within our industry by including our high performance, robust reed switch technology, perfected by HSI Sensing over nearly 50 years. We look forward to growing this line and continuing to provide exceptional service.”

HSI’s quality line of high-power, high-voltage reed switches, including the world’s most powerful Form C reed switch, are engineered for the unique demands of fluid processing applications. HSI products have been operating in environments that demand safety and reliability for decades. The expanded Hazardous Location Sensors line is certified and available for delivery now.
