Explosion Proof

Interlock and Emergency Stop Safety Switches for use in hazardous areas - positively operated contacts or high life non contact dry reed switching. For use in hazardous areas IECEx and ATEX IIC T6. (Gas and Dust). Designed for petro-chemical, pharmaceutical and food processing and packaging applications where explosive atmospheres exist.

IDEM explosion proof safety interlock switches are designed to fit to the leading edge of sliding, hinged or lift off machine guards to provide safe electrical switching within explosion risk environments like petro-chemical, pharmaceutical, food production and packaging. IDEM explosion proof rope pull switches are designed to provide protection to conveyors used in hazardous areas like beverage production and chemical handling. In addition to explosion proof switching and depending upon the risk assessment for the application, they can also be used in combination with any dual channel safety monitoring relays to provide high functional safety up to Category 4 and PLe ISO13849-1 or SIL3 EN62061.

Emergency Stop (E Stop) Safety Switches

ex-e-stop.jpgEmergency Stop (E Stop) switches are used by operators to shutdown a machine, system, or process.

Emergency Stop Switches are mounted on machines and sections of plant conveyors that cannot be protected by guards.

In combination with any dual channel safety monitoring controllers these switches can be used as emergency stop devices and monitored for up to Category 4/PLe to ISO13849-1.

All IDEM's Emergency Stop Switches conform to European Standard EN ISO13850 (formerly EN418) and IEC60947-5-5. They have a positive mechanical linkage between the switch contacts and the E Stop Button. The switches are mechanically latched and can then only be returned to the operational condition by pressing the reset button as required by EN ISO13850.

IDEM's range of Explosion Proof E stop switches can withstand sparking and flames and are IECEx and ATEX certified.
