Intrinsically Safe INMETRO Ex ia Limit Switch - Low Temperature - Single Pole Change Over
Certifications / Approvals
Proximity Switch Certified for INMETRO Ex ia IIC / IIIC T4 / T6 Rated for use in Gas & Dust Zones 0 and 20
This Proximity Switch has a Nickel Brass Cylindrical housing with SPCO / SPDT (Form C) , volt free, hermetically sealed Rhodium (Tungsten optional) contacts. It has a maximum switching current of 2.5A .
It requires the use of a magnetic target to operate. This versatile switch provides highly reliable continuous monitoring across a wide operating temperature range.
From the extreme low temperatures of –60°C/-76°F found in Arctic, Russian and Alaskan oil fields to elevated temperatures of greater than 100°C found in power generation sites, this switch is proven to withstand it all.
Suitable for use in the design of safety functions up to SIL2 or SIL3.
Using the latest production methods and materials this product meets global certification requirements and its robust design makes it suitable for use in arduous and hazardous environments. Euroswitch products are also available with multi-approvals including combinations of the following global and regional certification standards;
ATEX / IECEx Ex d (Ex db); Ex ia; UL & CSA Cl I Div 1 & 2 and Cl2 Div 1 & 2; TR CU; INMETRO; KCs; FM; JIS; PESO; CCC; and NEPSI.
