The diversity of applications in explosion hazardous areas is almost limitless. Pepperl+Fuchs, with a portfolio of explosion-protected components and customised systems offer optimal solutions for virtually all requirements. Electrical Explosion Protection Equipment by Pepperl+Fuchs is tailored to meet the multifarious requirements of process automation.
Starting with basic terminal boxes through control units and stations to complex control solutions the company offers a highly flexible, extensive portfolio.
Utilisation of various types of explosion protection as well as a large quantity of enclosure styles facilitates the design of efficient solutions for each application and environment. The high-quality enclosures are available in various sizes and materials.
Customised solutions come in explosion protection type’s ´intrinsic safety´ Ex i, ´increased safety´ Ex e, ´flameproof´ Ex d as well as ´pressurised´ Ex p, depending on the specific application´s requirements.
For instance, Ex e certified terminal boxes or control stations can be configured easily from a wide selection of well-matching components. No matter if it´s a small control unit with just one operating function or a sophisticated control station integrating more than fifty control elements.
Thanks to highly flexible configuration options the completed device will exactly fit to the specific application. The sturdy Ex d enclosures of Pepperl+Fuchs not only safeguard complex control and distribution panels against explosion hazards, they also protect the installed components from harsh environmental influences.
At the trade show booth two fair samples will show how identification systems without specific Ex-approval can safely be used inside hazardous areas, thanks to their installation in flameproof enclosures.
In cases where standard devices do not fit efficient customisation takes place: In world-wide located Solution Engineering Centres (SECs) the companies´ experts design and manufacture individual solutions, exactly tailored to the requirements of the users.
Good representations of this expertise are the Ex de control panels of Pepperl+Fuchs. They combine a flameproof enclosure (Ex d) to protect electrical components with an increased safety terminal compartment (Ex e) individually configured with connection terminals and operating elements, thus facilitating commissioning and maintenance.
