Control and communication products for extreme environmental conditions
Nuremberg, Germany, 2010-Oct-26
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has considerably expanded the range of applications of its Siplus extreme control and communication products that are especially suited to harsh environmental conditions. The devices are now also certified for use in toxic atmospheres according to ISA-S71.04 GX, for offshore deployment (salt mist) and in "Arizona dust". The components were previously suitable for use in corrosive atmospheres according to ISA-S71.04 G1, G2 and G3 as well as in situations involving 100 percent humidity, dewing and ice formation. The Siplus extreme devices are used in aggressive environmental conditions such as salt-laden air or at extreme temperatures which would not be suitable for standard Simatic automation components.
