EX-TERMINAL AND JUNCTION BOXES

 

Apparatus which do not create arcing or sparking or exceed max. Permissible surface temperatures during normal operating conditions can be used in accordance with the European standard EN 60079-7 Ex-e in hazardous areas of Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22. All junction and terminal boxes are manufactured according to this standard.

Unused cable entry holes are to be closed using either a certified screw or blanking plug. Terminal boxes can be subsequently re-fitted or upgraded with certified cable glands according to national regulations and the manufacturers recommendations. The requirements of EMC terminal boxes for use in instrumentation and control applications are met with our metal and interior coated housings. The coating in combination with the affordable cable entries shield off the sensitive instrumentation areas against unwanted external radiation fields.

Increased safety Ex-e type connection or terminal boxes are used in nearly every country in the world. In comparison to the flame-proof encapsulates versions, they are much cheaper and generally easier to install.

 

User-friendly technology and cost saving installation

Large terminal compartments allow for easy installation or retrofitting of wiring. In addition cost-saving terminal arrangements according to the customer' s specification speed up the total installation time. Our innovative clip-on mounting system has, in conjunction with the special designed apparatus, the advantage of being a cost reducer.

 

Installation without a hot work permit!

Using the clip-on mounting frames for the installation on walls, trellises and pipes you save time. Simply plugged! In combination with the new connection friendly apparatus you will find that the installation is now time saving and therefore saving you money.

 

Various solutions for your individual installation tasks

Terminal boxes made of moulded plastic with type of protection Ex-e are the most economic solution for wiring tasks. Lightweight design, corrosion resistance as well as wide thermal range are only a few of the advantages.

Light metal termination boxes combine light weight with heavy duty enclosure material. External earth connectors as well as metal cable glands directly screwed into the wall material offers some advantages using armoured cables.

High chemical resistance of the housing is ensured by the use of impact-resistant plastic powder coating.

Cover screws and all outside and inside metallic parts are made of stainless steel.

The robust design of the stainless steel terminal enclosures provides a high degree of safety for offshore applications and in places where particularly adverse chemical, mechanical and climatic operating conditions prevail within the hazardous area. Various terminal configurations as well as gland plates pre-manufactured according to the customer's requirements offer more flexibility for instrumentation and control installations using the Ex-e and Ex-i technologies.

All our terminal enclosures will fulfil the latest testing requirements according to international standards. In addition to ATEX certification testing, many other certification procedures  are performed prior to the product leaving the factory. Additional type approvals from UL, GOST or Nepsi allow a world wide use.
