Connectors Meet ATEX Standards

Dubbed the EXPlora series, the company’s latest range of connectors are suitable for use in hazardous environments. Independently tested for compliance to ATEX standards for use in Zone 2 and Zone 22 environments, the connectors employ a high-grade UL94V-0 rated Polycarbonate material and are similar in construction to the 900 Series connectors, which are sealed to IP68. Operating temperature ranges from –20°C to +55°C. The connectors are available in two-, three-, four-, five-, seven-, and 10-pole versions and in four body styles: cable, in-line cable, panel, and flange fixing. They are rated up to 18A, 600 Vac/dc for two, three, four, and five poles, 16A, 430Vac/dc for seven poles, and 10A, 250Vac/dc for 10 poles.
