machinery and hazardous automation

Your hazardous area equipment and certification partner 

CMR can develop and customize your products for flammable area environments (ATEX, CSA & UL).

We also have advanced knowledge and experience in all the major PLC based automation systems including ABBTM, Allen-BradleyTM, SchneiderTM and SiemensTM.


A recent project undertaken by CMR in the US will be the first system of its type available for approved Ex Class I, Division 2 applications. Please read our news story about this project for Cummins Mid-South

Compliance with this standard ensures that the control panels developed are safe for operation in locations where there is the potential for exposure to flammable volatile liquids or flammable gases being handled, processed or used.


The new technology has been developed to meet specific customer needs and will be used to control CumminsTM electronic controlled industrial engines, using the CM2150 ECU, for oil and gas power generators, pumps and compressor systems. It also features ‘fail safe’ architecture in case of a system error or component failure.

In developing these systems, CMR has drawn on its engineering services, including specific expertise in hardware design and manufacturing, featuring advanced wiring harnesses and control technology.

A specialist contract undertaken by CMR included the refurbishment of a machine crawler’s motor system for one of Europe’s largest power plant operators.

This project covered the wheel excavator, carrier band, lifting arm, arm rotator and primary power source in order to improve coal carrying efficiency.

Involving the replacement of eleven motors and servicing of another two, the project also covered the deployment of associated equipment such as hydraulic motors and lubrication pumps.


Implemented with ScheniderTM PLC’s, CMR was able to perform the refurbishment on-time and to strict specification, validating advanced calculations to control travel speed, orientation and lifting.

With a focus on delivering highly customized automation and supervision systems, we are a safe pair of hands for all your projects.
