Published:  16 July, 2019

EGE says launching the IGEX20a inductive proximity switch, it presents a compact sensor with ignition protection type Ex m (encapsulation). The company says, observing the relevant installation standards and conditions, it can be used directly in zones 0/20 without any further switching amplifier.

IGEX20a is certified according to ATEX and IECEx. IECEx certification simplifies worldwide use of the sensors in member countries of the IECEx regime. 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 in facilities with gas pipelines etc. The switching function is indicated by an LED on the back of the device. The sensors are available in M12, M18, and M30 designs.
