Sourcing the right battery pack for use in your equipment requires a good understanding of the responsibilities placed on employers to eliminate or control the risks from explosive atmospheres in the workplace.
In the UK, this is covered by DSEAR – Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002. To this end, equipment manufacturers must have complete confidence that their choice of battery pack supplier fulfils all health and safety requirements as required by DSEAR, to ensure that this compliance is continued through the supply chain to guarantee the safety of the end-user in the workplace.
Yok Energy ATEX cells and intrinsically safe battery packs to be used in industrial equipment for use in lone worker device circumstances, measurement instruments, portable gas detection, and portable equipment deployed in potentially hazardous environments.

The YOK Energy ATEX batteries fulfil the conditions laid out by the ATEX directives. These are the minimum requirement for improving the health and safety protection of workers at risk from explosive atmospheres.
There are two key areas in which the YOK Energy ATEX batteries can give you a competitive advantage in your finished product.
The YOK lithium rechargeable ATEX cells combine high energy density with the lightest weight, making them ideal for use in lone worker devices where prolonged use of handheld equipment is required. Our unique custom cell design will give a consistent and reliable performance to ensure that individual productivity levels of the end-user are maintained over the course of the entire shift, without interruption.
Battery safety is built intrinsically into the core of the YOK Energy ATEX cell. The cells are independently tested by verified third-party testing labs to ensure equipment manufacturers can incorporate them into their units with confidence and reassurance.
YOK Energy has been leading rechargeable lithium battery innovation since 2009, and we can work with companies to create bespoke ATEX battery cell and pack solutions for a wide range of applications. We carry out continuous research and development programmes covering all key areas of battery technology. These areas include materials – improving existing materials and testing new and emerging materials, improving and optimising cell design, verification analysis, internal quality control, automated manufacturing technology, and advanced testing techniques.
