Ex Solar Panels

JCE Group manufacture the SPA series of photovoltaic Ex mb e, Ex nA and Ex ec mc Solar Panels, which are ATEX and IECEx certified products. They are intended for use in areas made potentially hazardous by the presence of flammable liquids, gases or vapours (Zone 1 and Zone 2). Suitable for Category 2 and Category 3 G.

The cells of the panel are encapsulated between a tempered glass cover and EVA pottant with an aluminium polyester protected back sheet to provide maximum protection in the most extreme environmental conditions.

Typical applications for this new energy and cost saving concept are to monitor remote pipelines and unmanned offshore oil & gas installations where the location and the proximity of a hazardous area, deem conventional power sources and manpower to be less economical.

Complimented by other JCE Group products such as hazardous area batteries and Ex d control enclosures, the SPA series can be supplied as part of a complete control and monitoring system. Combined with a compatible inverter housed in our EJB range of Ex d enclosures, it is suitable for AC applications.
