As part of our new range of ATEX load cells, LCM Systems Ltd, is launching the AEN ATEX/IECEx stainless steel Ex d enclosure. Designed for use in Zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas, the enclosure will contain an internal explosion and prevent the transmission of sufficient energy to ignite a potentially flammable atmosphere outside of the enclosure, making it ideal to house load cell amplifiers or act as a junction box in environments where explosive gases, mists, dusts or vapours are present.
The new enclosure is manufactured in stainless steel with a minimum thickness of 16mm to give maximum environmental protection, is environmentally sealed to IP67 and has an internal volume of 500m3. It has been designed to accommodate cable entries for M12, M16 and M20 threads, with the number of cable entries as per customer and application requirements. For ease of use and flexibility, the AEN ATEX enclosure can also be supplied with a mounting base for straightforward attachment to walls, floors and assemblies.
Customers interested in the range can visit the new website at www.atexloadcell.com or contact LCM Systems’ design engineers direct on +44 (0) 1983 249264 to discuss any aspect of their ATEX load cell requirements.
