Products designed for switching and control in hazardous areas

 

Electrical switching devices for hazardous areas have for years been a focus for Pepperl+Fuchs. For Hannover Fair the portfolio for electrical explosion protection has been significantly expanded and updated.

Certified switches for panel mounting - many functions selectable
Pepperl+Fuchs delivers a large variety of products with many different types of protection and housing variants for machine control and electrical networks in hazardous areas.

Switches and push buttons for panel mounting
Of particular interest is the comprehensive line of switches, illuminated push buttons and emergency stop buttons. They are all characterised by their low mounting depth. The bayonet catch enables fast and secure installation in any switch panel. All switches are certified Ex e for installation in standard panels in hazardous area locations.

New in hazardous areas: Buzzers and flashing buzzers
Pepperl+Fuchs introduces new buzzers to hazardous locations. The buzzer provides visual and audible indication in the form of a flashing light and a loud audible alarm.

Disconnect- and Safety Switches
This line of switches ensures safe operation of motors and drives in explosion hazardous areas. Pepperl+Fuchs steps up with a completely new model range with protection rating Ex de. The tamper resistant safety switches feature three-way locking. All switches are available as 3, 4 and 6, pole versions with 16, 25, or 40 A in a GRP or stainless steel enclosure.
