Honeywell earns ATEX certification for MICRO SWITCH EX Series
In addition to IECEx certification, the EX family of products currently holds North American UL/CSA and European ATEX approvals. With this certification, manufacturers can specify one Honeywell MICRO SWITCH EX Series switch for a machine that may potentially be used in Europe, Asia, or North America.
"Now that we have this certification, our customers can apply our products almost anywhere in the world and meet ever-increasing levels of safety regulations," said Brad Kautzer, vice president and general manager of the electromechanical line of business for Honeywell Sensing and Control.
"Honeywell offers a wide range of differentiated solutions to meet virtually any application requirement."
Honeywell MICRO SWITCH EX Series Hazardous Location Limit Switches are rugged products used in potentially explosive locations, such as control valves in petrochemical, waste handling, or food processing plants. Honeywell's MICRO SWITCH BX Series Hazardous Location Switches received IECEx approvals in 2008, and Honeywell continues to seek approvals for other series within this product line. Honeywell MICRO SWITCH explosion-proof limit switches may be most appropriate for use in dangerous environments where contamination or long distances may render other sensing technologies ineffective.
