A leading industrial lighting company has announced the release of a 10-amp, explosion-proof momentary push button switch for controlling machinery or process in industrial and commercial applications.
The EPS-2XPB-SG-MS explosion proof momentary switch is Class 1 Division 1 & 2 and Class 2 Division 1 & 2 rated for hazardous locations. This start/stop push button switch is constructed for heavy duty use and is factory sealed, eliminating the need for added seal fittings and compound. The switch is enclosed in a separate sealing chamber which has smooth, double flanges that mate both to the cover and the mounting enclosure to provide flame tight joints. Stainless steel hex head screws attach the sealing chamber to the cover and mounting enclosure to ensure complete sealing. The housing for this explosion proof switch is made of a malleable iron body with a cast copper free aluminum alloy cover, epoxy powder coated for a natural finish. This switch is ideal in applications such as chemical plants, oil and gas refineries, paint manufacturing plants, gas loading terminals, grain elevators, and metal handling or finishing areas where the atmosphere may contain hazardous gases and dusts.
