MTNW announces Class 1, Division 2 UL Certified LCI-90i-IS Rugged Programmable Controller

MTNW’s next-generation Rugged Programmable Controller approved for use in Class I, Division 2, T5, Group A, B, C, and D hazardous locations
“The new LCI-90i-IS is a turn-key solution for industrial applications such as winch monitoring in hazardous environments. This approval enables our Oil and Gas customers to connect directly to field sensors, automate processes, and enhance networking and data logging capabilities without expensive enclosures, barriers or purging systems.”  Tom Rezanka, vice president, Measurement Technology NW
August 29, 2013.  Seattle, WA.  Measurement Technology NW (MTNW) announces its LCI-90i-IS Rugged Programmable Controller (RPC) has been awarded the globally recognized Underwriters Laboratories (UL) certification.  UL quality approval allows customers to use the industry leading RPC in hazardous applications without additional testing or approvals.  MTNW offers versions of its flagship display for winch, pump, crane, tank, and torque applications.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) tested the LCI-90i-IS to meet applicable U.S. and Canadian standards. UL is a worldwide leader in product safety and certification.
Safety and reliability of equipment is increasingly important for manufacturers, integrators and end users in the oil and gas industry.  “MTNW is committed to the safety and accuracy of our products,” said Tom Rezanka, vice president of MTNW.  “Our LCI-90i-IS reduces system costs, minimizes installation time, and can be panel mounted in any standard enclosure, eliminating bulky explosion proof enclosures, isolating barriers, and purging systems.  Our system is plug-and-play; replacing legacy and defunct controllers, while providing unmatched performance monitoring applications in hazardous environments.”  The LCI-90i-IS is UL approved for Class I, Division 2, T5, Group A, B, C, and D locations.
The LCI-90i-IS is a next-generation programmable controller that combines advanced signal-processing capabilities with rugged reliability for new projects and retrofits of existing equipment. Sensor data, parameters, alarms, controls, and graphs are displayed on a bright electroluminescent display for unmatched readability in all light conditions. Four I/O channels, serial networking capability, plus USB and Ethernet ports provide flexibility in line monitoring, weighing, or SCADA applications. An internal CF disk permits on-board data logging, and the LCI-90i-IS can be linked with remote displays and computer systems to create a real time monitoring network.
