ExVeritas updates ‘Ex Tools’ with Non-Electrical Assessment Tool ‘ExMechCal Pro’
ExVeritas has developed a suite of free software for our customers to assist with ATEX or IECEx non-electrical ignition analysis to the new ISO80079-36/37 Standards (these new non-electrical standards will be used for both ATEX and IECEx non-electrical certification).
The software is available by simply logging in (there is nothing to install) and will be made available on request to any customer attending our non-electrical training courses or ATEX/IECEx non-electrical certification projects. The tools will assist with L10 bearing calculations, website impact calculations (for sparking impacts) and basic potential energy calculations required for non-electrical assessments.
ExVeritas have developed a range of free online software tools to assist our customers in free and ‘pro’ versions. The free versions are available to anyone who creates an account, the ‘pro’ versions are for ExVeritas registered customers.
FlamCal: ATEX and IEC Flammable Properties Application. This ATEX tool allows the user to select a specific gas or vapour to determine the physical properties (temperature class, gas group, explosive range etc.) that will be required for ATEX or IEC equipment selection or area classification.
IntrinsiCal: ATEX and IEC Intrinsic Safety Circuit Evaluation Application. This ATEX Tool will give an indication of the maximum voltage, current and capacitance to use when designing a circuit to be intrinsically safe.
MESGCal: ATEX and IEC Flameproof Design Application. This ATEX tool is designed to provide a designer or an inspector with an indication of the correct maximum safe gap for a ‘Flamepath’.
SILCal: Safety Integrity Level Determination. This application is designed to assist you in the process of determining SIL in accordance with the guidance in IEC 61508. By select event scenarios, a target SIL will be given.
IntrinsiCal Pro: Advanced Intrinsic Safety Analysis.
Advanced Intrinsic Safety Analysis calculates a full analysis for a resistive circuit with mixed capacitance and inductance including safety component ratings.
Intrinsic Safety DSD Pro: Intrinsic Safety System Drawing Generator.
Select Barriers, Cable and Equipment from drop down menus and this software will conduct all the necessary calculations (including the new <1% rules) and generate a full report and DSD drawings.
ExMechCal Pro: Ex Non-Electrical Risk Assessment Tools.
A range of useful tools for non-electrical analysis including physical impact, rotating speeds and L10 bearing calculations.
SILCal Pro: Functional Safety and Failure Mode Assessment Tools.
Generates failure rate calculations (such as MTBF) based on flow chart input (AND/OR) from a database of failure rate data (editable/selectable).
ExVeritas are a UKAS Accredited ATEX Notified Body, IECEx Certification Body and CompEx Certification Centre. ExVeritas also offer full DSEAR/ATEX 137 safety services including our unique ‘iEx’ Software which offers a complete cloud based DSEAR/ATEX 137 EPD and Ex equipment Inspection Management System.
