I don't believe ther eis a total Ex flaw detector system on the market - system becomes non EX when you connect and disconnect probes unless you install numerous barriers.

If its ahazardous area why can you not work under gas detectors and a hot work permit its done daily around the world.

You could get a probe cable sealed at the probe end then but detector and connector in a sealed and purged box with a see through window.
