Enclosures and control stations for hazardous locations

| By Chemical Engineering



The EC2B Series (photo) is a new line of enclosures, control stations and accessories for hazardous-location applications. These standard and custom control stations utilize the company’s EU2B line of hazardous location pushbuttons, pilot lights, selector switches, key selector switches, emergency stop switches and analog meters. All EC2B and EU2B products are UL certified for use in Zone 1 and 2, and are also certified for use in hazardous locations by IECEx (Global), ATEX (Europe) and TIIS (Japan) to meet the strictest safety standards. The enclosures and fully-sealed pilot devices are rated IP65 and Type 4X for protection against water and corrosion, and are available with exposed or finger-safe IP20 screw terminals. The enclosures are constructed of 304 stainless steel to provide long service life in hazardous and corrosive areas. — IDEC Corp., Sunnyvale, Calif.
