Proximity switch for Ex zone 0/20
Published: 13 December, 2018
EGE has introduced the IGEX20a inductive proximity switch, and says it provides a very compact sensor for zone 0/20 hazardous areas that can be used without additional amplifiers. The company says IGEX20a is certified according to ATEX and IECEx and the IECEx certification simplifies worldwide use of the sensors. Certified for use in Ex zones 0 and 20, the proximity switches can be employed in hazardous areas with gas or dust atmospheres, for example in gas stations and facilities with gas-conveying parts.
The switching function is indicated by an LED on the back of the device. The sensors are available in an M12, M18, or M30 design. Flush installation provided, the nominal switching distances are 2 mm, 5 mm, and 10 mm, depending on the design.
