Applied Measurement Australia Pty Ltd is proud to announce that Mantracourt has released a variety of ATEX/ IECEx rated telemetry products approved for use in explosive atmospheres Zone 1, Zone 2 solving the ongoing and never ending problems associated with using sensors and acquisition systems in hazardous areas.


The X24-ACMi-SA ATEX/IECEx telemetry transmitter module measures strain input and regularly transmits data for receipt by X24 or T24 receivers. The high accuracy ratio-metric input allows for the calibration and C_oe0tIXgAAcNKlinearization of pressure, force, torque and weight so that data can be measured in explosive atmospheres. The flexibility of this transmitter means that it can support a wide range of bridge sensors and is ideal for places that are difficult for a wired connection. Other versions include the ATEX / IECEx Telemetry Strain Transmitter OEM Module (X24-SAe) as well as the Embedded Digital Load Cell Converter /Strain Gauge Digitizer Module (DCell).

The X24-HD handheld display can work with X24 or T24 Transmitter modules. It allows for wireless remote viewing of various remote inputs such as strain gauge or voltage etc. using 2.4 GHz radio.

The remote transmitter module measures its input value (strain gauge, voltage, current etc.) and transmits it regularly. The X24- HD both captures and displays this data.


The ATEX 4 – 20mA load cell amplifier,  ALA5 is designed for operation within hazardous zones 0,1 and 2. The high performance of a ATEX 4-20 mA load cell amplifier provides 2-wire 4-20 mA current loop output and connects in-line for a range of signal conditioning for strain gauges, load cells, pressure and torque transducers. The ALA5 is intrinsically safe to EN6009-11 (previously EN 50020) standards and can be connected to ATEX approved equipment within the hazardous zone as well as non-approved ATX equipment outside the hazardous zone if a suitable barrier is used. The ALA5 is housed within a stainless steel IP67 NEMA 6 EMC enclosure and is supplied with 1m strain gauge cable and 5m output cable.

Other models include the ATEX Embedded Load Cell Amplifier, Strain Gauge Signal Conditioner (ICA5ATEX).
