Werma 740 Incandescent Stack Lights, Explosion Protected

Zone 1 and 2, Zone 21 and 22!
Tower in flame-proof enclosure.
For hazardous locations due to gases and/or dusts. 

The Werma 740 Series has all the advantages of a stack light and are now available for hazardous locations. Attention-getting visual features can be safely signaled in areas susceptible to the collection of hazardous gases and dusts. Visual communication and text messaging a machines status is clearly provided via leading technology.

Typical applications include Machines and equipment in hazardous areas due to the presence of gas or dust: petroleum refineries, chemical plants, waste water treatment plants, pharmaceutical manufacturing areas, grain silos, paint spray booths, etc.

WERMA signal horns, electronic buzzers, flashing beacons, double flash beacons, signal towers and horns, and rotating beacons all in explosion proof housings. With the optical portion, the relative importance of the action to be taken can be indicated by color as well as by the light effect and length of the signal being used.

The customer can choose from a whole spectrum of signals ranging from the permanent light to the more intensive blinking light through the rotating indicator or the attention-getting flashing light. While the audible portion is where caution, prudence and clarity are essential, these signals are used to indicate emergencies and demand direct action. They are understood throughout the world regardless of culture or written language. Signaling with audible devices works via one or more tones or tone sequences.


•Customize exact solution for exact application
•Low maintenance due to LED design
•Machine vibrations will not shorten bulb life
•No need to remove equipment indication to safe areas. 740 series allows signals to remain on the equipment.

Division 2 or Zone 2 area

This is a step up from the safe area. In this zone the gas, vapor or mist would only be present under abnormal conditions (most often leaks under abnormal conditions). As a general guide, unwanted substances should only be present under 10 hours/year or 0–0.1% of the time.[citation needed] Division 1 or Zone 1 area. Gas, vapor or mist will be present or expected to be present for long periods of time under normal running. As a guide this can be defined as 10–1000 hours/year or 0.1–10% of the time

Zone 21

A place in which an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally.

Zone 22

A place in which an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust is not likely to occur in normal operation, but if it does occur will persist for a short period only.

Edge Sensor PosCon 3D from Baumer - Power, Reliable, Easy-To-Operate

The innovative optical edge sensor PosCon 3D by Baumer is the most powerful in its class.  It reliably will master tasks which used to be up to complex laser measuring systems.  In parallel, PosCon 3D provides impressive convenience in both operation and installation.

Multiple capabilities make the sensor a versatile solution to reliably detect edge positions and object or gap width.  There is no need for a separate reflector.  Object movements towards and away from the sensor within the measuring field will not impair the measuring result.  PosCon 3D will reliably identify any object-independent of the color and surface.

Operation is easy.  Install, align to the object and select the required language on he touch  display-that's it.

PosCon 3D provides utmost application flexibility.  Edge positions are reliably detected even when installed in any non-vertical position within a lateral angle up to 30°.  The object width is identified within fractions of a second and with an accuracy of 2/10 of a millimeter-no matter the object position within the measuring field.

PosCon3D can a;so identify the center of an object.  As soon as the object is outside he tolerance range, the sensor will trigger the switching output.

The edge sensor is predestined for gap control in packaging applications.  Precisely measuring the gap between the closure flaps, PosCon3D will immediately identify any still open box.

Werma Obstruction Lights

The law stipulates that buildings of a specific height and in the vicinity of airports as well as factory chimneys, towers, masts, etc. must be equipped with obstruction lights.

The new WERMA obstruction light is especially robust.  It provides reliable signalling for all traffic hazards-even in extreme conditions. To protect the obstruction light against sea salt, UV radiation or aviation fuel, WERMA has selected a particularly robust material-the aluminum die-cast housing is made of a high-quality salt water resistant alloy which is covered with a powder coating.

The glass lens is made of hardened borosilicate glass.  This ensures the the signaling device does not weather even in the toughest conditions.

Thanks to the LED technology, WERMA's obstruction light is maintenance-free.  With a life duration of up to 50,000 hours the LEDs last up to 50 times longer than conventional light bulbs.
