Idec releases EU2B safety devices for hazardous areas

Friday March 13, 2015
Mar. 13, 2015 - Idec has released the EU2B family of safety devices including pushbuttons, pilot lights, selector switches and ammeters, all of which comply with ATEX, C-UL, IEC and UL/NEC safety standards for use in hazardous areas.

The devices are fully sealed to prevent the release of sufficient electrical energy which could ignite explosive gases or particles in the environment, says the company. The pushbuttons are available in flush, extended and mushroom styles, and contain up to three sealed contact blocks, each rated up to 10A, in normally open or normally closed configurations. Emergency stop pushbuttons feature push-to-lock and turn-to-reset operation, and are supplied with a yellow body and a standard red mushroom head. Multiple contact configurations are available. The pilot lights are available in amber, green, pure white, red, blue, white and yellow, and can operate from a 110Vac, 220Vac or 24Vdc power source. Selector switches are available with two or three selector positions, and with a variety of spring return options and circuit configurations. A key-operated selector switch is also available. AC ammeters, DC ammeters and DC voltmeters are available with a wide choice of measuring ranges.
