I am interested in peoples opinion about buying equipment rated by agencies out side of there own country. For instance I am looking for a camera for use in the USA. Area classification is Class 1 Div1 Group C+D. Most of the cameras out there are ATEX rated. The chemical company I work for have in the past avoided anything not specifically rated for the USA. What does everyone else do?With FM, CSA, ATEX, IS out there we end up excluding what I am sure are good equipment but lack the label valid in the US. Any thoughts on this?
