e are many aspects to consider before you enter a hazardous (Ex) area to perform calibrations or inspections, such as the rating of the area (zone or division) and the equipment you use. Attend this webinar to learn about the hazardous area classifications, important considerations and techniques to ensure compliance and safety, and see demonstrations of a calibration and inspection in a hazardous area.

For the past three decades, Mr. Kamrani's project experiences include master planning, design, construction, commissioning and validation of field instruments, control systems, automation software, networks and the associated electrical distribution design and hardware. The projects were at facilities such as chemical, pharmaceutical, municipal, food, research and laboratory facilities, office buildings, commercial, educational, institutional, airport/transportation facilities and manufacturing plants. The projects scope included cost and feasibility analysis, and detail design and construction of process control automation system, including PLCs, HMI, DCS, SCADA and higher level enterprise system integrations, such as CMMS, LIMS, ERP and open system protocols such as Web Services. Some of the project scope focused on hardware and their proprietary control system such as electrical power distribution and metering system, lighting and lighting control, fire alarm, security, and building control systems. Mr. Kamrani has a Master in Engineering and MBA and he is a LEED Accredited Professional.
