Safety for operators in hazardous locations is critical. IDEC’s hazardous location switches and boxes provide security in applications up to Class I Zone 1. Fully sealed contacts and enclosures limit the energy which is required for an explosion, thus keeping operators safe. These switches and boxes come in a variety of options, allowing for the right combination in any application.
Complying with UL and ATEX Directives for hazardous environments, new 30mm EU2B Hazardous Location Switches provide increased safety for your applications. With a Class 1, Zone 1 rating, the EU2B family offers more versatility than Class 1 Division 2 products. Featuring UL Type 4X Pushbuttons with multiple color options and operator choices.
Used in conjunction with EU2B switches, EC2B control stations, enclosures and accessories provide global approvals for hazardous environments. Available in popular standard control station configurations and customized control station configurations, all EC2B products are UL certified for use in Zone 1 and 2, and certified for use in hazardous locations by IECEx (Global) and ATEX (Europe) to meet the strictest safety standards. Enclosures and fully-sealed pilot devices are rated IP65 and Type 4X for protection against water and corrosion.
