DART is on its best way to becoming an accepted standard technology in the process industry. Dynamic Arc Recognition and Termination (DART) is a much easier approach to certify the intrinsic safety of a circuit. It provides considerable more power to drive field devices within explosion hazardous areas and allows longer cable distances. It uses intelligent detection circuits to monitor the entire electric circuit. As soon as the formation of a dangerous spark is detected, the power supply is shut off within microseconds to prevent the spark from becoming incentive. This greatly increases installation options and opens a completely new range of applications.

The Cristopia cold storage system, commissioned a few months ago, optimizes the hospital’s energy consumption and uses refrigerating units of a 2200 kW combined power instead of the 4000 kW initially planned. This CIAT equipment produces the cooling capacity needed for the entire building (Jean BERNARD), over 110 000 m2, with a 1000 bed capacity, including, amongst other units, 14 operating theatres, 20 imaging rooms and 29 intensive care beds. The installation will pay for itself in only 4 years.
