June 27, 2017 – Phoenix Contact now offers an electromechanical slim relay family with triple ratings for IECEx, ATEX, and Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations. While Phoenix Contact has offered dual-rated relays that meet both the European and American standards since 2015, the relays now also meet the IEC criteria for applications around the globe.
The HazLoc editions’ single-pole, double-throw relays measure 6.2-mm wide, while the double-pole, double-throw relays are 14-mm wide. The product offers replaceable electromechanical options for maintenance.
The relay modules offer PT push-in and screw connection, and are compatible with all other PLC relay accessories. The product line has expanded to include both 6 A and 10 A models.
Hazardous gas and vapor are common in many industries, from wastewater treatment plants to pharmaceutical production. These environments are not suitable for components that can provide a source of ignition, so it is crucial to ensure reliable, safe products are used to prevent an accident. The potted PLC.../EX relays eliminate the need for costly explosion-proof enclosures, allowing customers to use one relay design virtually anywhere in the world.
