Rotary Limit Switches, Cross Limit Switches and Slip Rings for Hazardous Areas

Our ATEX and IECEx approved products:

In various industrial areas, safety components must meet the requirements for potentially explosive atmospheres. This applies, for example, to the chemical industry, but also to many areas of the food and automotive industries.

The LadyX pendant control unit is a single-row or double-row control unit for auxiliary power applications in hazardous areas. The specially developed metal housing made of aluminium, special seals and explosion-proof cable entries have enabled the LadyX pendant control unit to obtain ATEX and IECEx approvals.

The explosion-proof AlphaX cross lever limit switch is designed to control the movement of indoor cranes, bridge cranes, other lifting equipment and complex industrial machines used in potentially explosive atmospheres. The AlphaX cross limit switch offers many different switching configurations. The cross bars can move to 3 or 4 fixed switching points or be used as multiturn limit switches without end position.

The new ATEX-approved gear limit switch FRX is used to control the movement of industrial machines in potentially explosive atmospheres.
The housing of the FRX offers space for 2, 3 or 4 snap-action switches with 1NO / 1NC change-over contacts. All NC contacts are positive break contacts for safety functions.

The slip ring EXD was specially developed for use in silos. Various materials for rings and busts enable the transmission of high electrical power, signals and data from BUS systems. There are two module sizes available with power ratings of 7A and 34A. Rings and brushes, which are made of copper graphite as standard, can be coated with a silver or gold alloy. This leads to an increase in the contact quality and has a positive influence on the wear properties.



To give you a perfect overview of B-COMMAND’s products and solutions in ATEX and IECEx areas, B-COMMAND has created a separate catalogue with products for hazardous areas. Of course, the B-COMMAND team will be happy to advise you.

The requirements for equipment and protective systems for use in potentially explosive atmospheres laid down in the ATEX directives for Europe are increasingly being replaced by internationally valid IECEx regulations. The essential change for the user is that dust and explosion protection are combined and uniformly regulated in the new worldwide standardization. With the increasing requirements, the level of safety is increasing at the same time.
