Leuze Electronics-the sensor people-has a variety of sensors available to be used in explosive atmospheres.
Marshall Wolf Automation, your full-line industrial automation distributor, is an authorized Leuze distributor.
Following are some examples of explosion proof sensor solutions from Leuze:
46B Ex n Series-The sensors of the 46B series comply with category 3 and have been developed especially for zone 2 ("Gas-Ex") in protection type nA and for zone 22 ("Dust-Ex") in protection type td. They may be used with conducting and non-conducting dust. The sensors are accommodated inside a metal casing for protection against mechanical damage.
Intrinsically safe sensors of the 92 Ex series-These are designed either as a single-beam light barrier, as a reflection light barrier or as a reflection light button, and can detect objects reliably at distances between 300mm and 12 m. The intrinsically safe ATEX sensors communicate the switching signals by way of the NAMUR interface to the VS 403 isolating switching amplifiers. Sensors of this series may be used in zones 1 and 2 in areas where there are potentially explosive gases and dust.
Isolated switching amplifier VS 403 with intrinsically safe supply circuit-The VS 403 isolating switching amplifier makes it possible to effect an intrinsically safe circuit for the sensors of the '92" series. For setting up the intrinsically safe circuit, Leuze electronics also offers blue cables with M12 circular plugs to connect the sensor to the isolating switching amplifier.
