With the inductive proximity switches "Igex20a" now presents EGE with a compact sensor that can be used directly in Zone 0 / 20 without any additional switching amplifier. This is certified to Atex and IECEx. The IECEx approval simplifies the worldwide use of the sensors in countries that have joined the scope of the standards.
Due to the certification for the 0 and 20 Ex-Zones, the proximity switches can be used directly in gas-explosive and dust-explosive areas such as gas stations and gas-bearing systems or dust-explosion-hazardous areas. An LED at the rear of the housing signals the switching function. The sensors are available in the M12, M18 and M30 designs. Depending on the design, the nominal switching distances of the proximity switches with flush mounting are 2, 5 or 10 mm. The connection is made via a 2 m long PUR cable. On request, the proximity switches are also available with other cable lengths.
