Proximity switches meet Ex requirements

Sensors UK also has a new series of proximity switches - silicon-free inductive designs suitable for use Zone 2 Explosive areas in paint and dryer systems, in steel mining industry and for production of press plates, asphalt, glass, cement and in all areas where objects must be detected at a high temperature. The MI-250-Ex has a working temperature range of 230ºC, with short excursions up to 250ºC where many conventional switches would just burn away or fail. Special temperature compensation makes the switching distance constant at high temperatures. The MI250-Ex are available as an extension of the existing Sensors UK range of proximity switches and are compliant with standard EN 60079-0:2004. All switches use a 24V DC power supply, with the option of 115V AC mains supply for those applications where there is no local DC supply available.
