Modular plug connectors for use in hazardous areas

| By Gerald Ondrey

This company has launched a new generation of plug connectors with the Ex e and Ex d types of protection for quick connection of explosion-protected electrical equipment. As a solution that is particularly easy to mount and maintain, the modularly designed miniCON series (photo) offers a wide range of options, which can be designed for in-line connection of portable control systems, electrical systems, moving machines and drives, as well as camera and human-machine interface (HMI) systems. The eight-pole plugs and couplings are designed for cable cross-sections from 0.25 to 2.5 mm². — R. Stahl AG, Waldenburg, Germany
