ExVeritas made the difference between success and failure for the Atex certification of our control system prototype, as part of the pipeline isolation tool. This control system comprises a complex interplay between electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic sub-systems, which makes it necessary to comply with several standards from different disciplines. ExVeritas provided excellent guidance on what works and how it works. The final design of the control system represents the optimum for both, our customers as well as our technicians and engineers. All our questions were addressed very professionally by ExVeritas so that we were able to accumulate knowledge about Atex. I generally attach great importance to proper documentation. ExVeritas impressed me with their report, which included multiple solutions along with their pros and cons. We received this report shortly after our kick-off meeting. Overall, ExVeritas receives my highest recommendations.
C. Fabris, Managing Director at Tecnovideo S.r.l.
Collaboration between Tecnovideo and ExVeritas is without doubt one of the keys to success that Tecnovideo has reached in recent years. ExVeritas not only has been an extremely valued partner for us during the ATEX/IECEx certification process, but also during the research and development phase, providing an extremely valuable support that has really made the difference. It is a great pleasure to work with experienced, professional and helpful people like ExVeritas
M. Russell, Electrical Designer, Tesco Corporation
It has been a pleasure working with ExVeritas, to acquire the ATEX certification we required for Zone 1 compliance on our product lines. ExVertas has been courteous, professional and quick to respond to any questions that have been requested. They know the importance of how some projects have critical time lines, they are team players and champions when it comes to providing superior service.
L. Treviño, Engineering Manager- Certification, Weatherford Production Optimization
As a large manufacturer of oil & gas products we have dealings with tens of certification bodies. ExVeritas has quickly become a preferred service provider because of their vast knowledge, expertise and turnaround times. Their down to earth, honest way of doing business is refreshing. With the guidance of ExVeritas we have managed to streamline our companies certification documentation package, which greatly increases our efficiency and saves us thousands of dollars per year.
J. Hartley, Managing Director. Extronics Limited
ExVeritas really do understand the commercial pressures that manufacturers come up against with getting products certified in a timely manner. They have been able to deliver several international certification projects in the time quoted which is absolutely paramount when contractual penalties apply for late delivery of equipment as well as ones reputation. We also find that they respond to email’s in a timely manner as well as answering the phones or getting back to us quickly when our engineers wish to discuss something. Anyone who is working regularly in the certification of hazardous area products knows that this is not the norm with many Notified Bodies!
O. Patton, Senior Mechanical Engineer, Nidec Avtron Automation Corporation
It was a pleasure working with you as well. All the required changes to the product along the way made sense. Your examination was thorough and logical. I will recommend that we work with Exveritas on future projects.
O. James, Managing Director, Pharos Marine/Sims-Systems
I have worked with the Directors of ExVeritas for over 15 years and used their services for many ATEX, IEC and CE projects. In all that time I have found them helpful, reliable, extremely knowledgeable and most importantly, able to deliver the certification we needed on time.
Dr. Charlotte Richardson, S3 ID Product Development Manager
In my role as Product Development Manager, I have worked with ExVeritas on a number of design and certification projects. They are friendly and helpful, and very professional. I enjoy working with them. No matter how unusual the product is, they are always able to advise me
T. Holliday, CEO of CorDEX Instruments
ExVeritas have provided an excellent service in assisting us with some very advanced intrinsically safe certification. Our products are state-of-the-art and it was great having such experienced and helpful certification experts on our side. I recommend ExVeritas for their depth of experience, communication during projects and ability to expedite certification.
J.Horvath, Mechanical Engineer OPRA Turbines B.V.
I attended the ATEX course for Gas Turbines together with my colleagues, during the development stage of new product for the European market. It was one of the most useful courses for all of us. Deep experience, professional approach and the lecturer endeavored to meet our specific requirements. All of this convinced us that ExVeritas was the right choice.
Steven Richards, Electrical Engineer, Centrax Gas Turbine Division
Everyone who attended the course felt that it was very informative, appropriately structured, and presented in a very clear, knowledgeable, and thorough manner. One of the main aspects that was appreciated by all who attended was how flexible the lecturers were whilst presenting, with respect to discussing specific ATEX issues that had been experienced by individuals on various occasions. The content of the presentation provided, and the discussions on other ATEX matters, left us with a much clearer and wider knowledge of ATEX as a whole, and specifically gas turbine applications.
James Wightman, Principal Electrical Engineer PMP
When I began work on my current project, intrinsic safety was a foreign concept. With fifteen years of experience designing electronics it was time for me to learn something new. After searching the web for i.s. consultants, I found ExVeritas. After a few pointed conversations, it was clear I found my source for i.s. consultancy and training. The lecturer was extremely knowledgeable with over 25 years of experience in the industry, and the subject matter was immediately applicable to my project. I found the course to be critically important to the success of current and future projects, and the professional relationship I developed with the staff continues to prove most valuable today.
John K. O. Pedersen, Senior RF Engineer, Motorola Solutions.
This is a great course and unique of its kind. I can recommend this course to every designer.
Dr Adrian West CEng, Technical Director, Optima Control Solutions Ltd.
We design control systems for manufacturing process machinery and our work often requires us to upgrade such systems within ATEX rated areas using flameproof and intrinsically safe products. We contacted ExVeritas to provide ATEX training for our Project and Installation Engineers and they created a course tailored to our individual needs. The range of topics covered included general principles of design, protection methods, selection of equipment, installation and inspection. They were very knowledgeable and engaged with our Engineers throughout the course, answering questions and looking at typical case studies applicable to our business. Full course notes were provided and certificates of attendance for our staff. Our Engineers talked about the course for days after the event.
I couldn’t of done it without your extra days tuition, I really enjoyed and understood fully how to complete the I.S calculations and the homework is a great idea as it made me feel at ease once I had completed it and understood it fully. You have a great facility overall and are a very good tutor, I have recommended you to a lot of people that wanted to do the course…
Trevor Green, Design Engineer, Deeter Group
Thank you very much, It is a great help knowing there is someone at ExVeritas I can contact who will give a quick answer in plain English to those difficult questions. Your explanations about the differences between ATEX, Divisional and NEC505 are a real help.
