Main switch / safety switch

During cleaning and repair work, the safety switches take over the inevitable separation of the electric power supply from equipment in potentially explosive areas. The safety switches are approved for use in potentially explosive areas of Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.

Terminal boxes

The terminal boxes are explosion proof equipment for permanent installation. They are used in potentially explosive areas for distributing electric energy. The housings are made of fibreglass-reinforced polyester resin in different sizes. They are combinable with each other for more extensive distributions.

End carriages and travelling machineries

Numerous design variants of end carriages and travelling machineries are available for operation in explosive atmospheres. For new systems as well as modernisations, this allows coordination depending to the requirements. Single and double girder overhead bridge cranes are tailor-made without great effort for individualists.

Signal lamps and horn

Through the optical and acoustic identification of different system states, the EX signal lamp and EX horn increase the safety for the crane and trolley operation. They signal to the crane operator, for example, an overload or the activation of the radio control and so contribute to the avoidance of accidents.

Different light modes and colour caps of the signal lamp allow optimum customisation for the respective requirements.

The 108 db loud EX horn is manufactured from either aluminium or polycarbonate.

The compact and encased EX components offer protection against mechanical damage and external influences thanks to their robust housings, and this also includes first-class corrosion protection.
