Phoenix Contact released a slim relay family with triple ratings for IECEx, ATEX, and Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations.

Phoenix Contact now offers an electromechanical slim relay family with triple ratings for IECEx, ATEX, and Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations.

While Phoenix Contact has offered dual-rated relays that meet European and American standards since 2015, the relays now also meet the IEC criteria for applications around the globe.

The HazLoc editions maintain the streamlined design and ease of use that are standard for Phoenix Contact relays. The single-pole, double-throw relays measure 6.2-mm wide, while the double-pole, double-throw relays are 14-mm wide. The product offers replaceable electromechanical options for easy maintenance.

The relay modules offer an exclusive PT push-in and screw connection, and are compatible with all other PLC relay accessories. The product line has expanded to include both 6 A and 10 A models.

Hazardous gas and vapor are common in many industries, from wastewater treatment plants to pharmaceutical production. These environments are not suitable for components that can provide a source of ignition, so it is crucial to ensure reliable, safe products are used to prevent an accident. The potted PLC/EX relays eliminate the need for costly explosion-proof enclosures, allowing customers to use one relay design virtually anywhere in the world.
