exida, the global leader in functional safety and cybersecurity certification, is pleased to announce the winners of their 2019 Safety & Cyber Awards.  

We are thrilled with the quality of products that were submitted for this year’s awards,” said exida principal partner Dr. William Goble.

This made for a very difficult decision process, but we are confident that the chosen products best exemplify innovation and novelty. Congratulations to this year’s recipients."

This Year’s Winners Include:


Product: PrevEx 670 Series
Category: Sensors

The PrevEx, formerly the 670 series of analyzers, is Control Instruments’ Flammability Analyzer for Lower Flammable Limit monitoring. Its new name boasts its ability to prevent explosions and its new look adds flavor to the industrial environment. To top it off, it still solves all of the sampling, measuring, and reporting problems found in industrial process applications while promising accuracy, consistency, and reliability. The PrevEx allows you to protect your investment: it keeps your facility, employees, and environment safe while increasing your productivity and eliminating downtime. Its accuracy surpasses that of any other analyzer, due to its unique flame temperature technology, delivering the highest degree of safety. This exclusive design is based on a sensing-flame concept that has since proven itself to be the most reliable detection system in the industry. Unlike catalytic sensors that can become contaminated, give false readings or fail outright, the PrevEx has many impressive features to ensure unmatched safety, extreme accuracy, and ultra-fast response time, even when sampling a mixture of several different flammable vapors. The PrevEx Flammability Analyzer is efficient and economical, leaving you feeling confident in its performance. After all, a monitoring system is only as good as the sensor it employs!
