Explosion-Proof Stop/Start Momentary Switch

25 April 2016

The EPS-2XPB-SG-MS explosion-proof momentary switch from Larson Electronics is Class 1, Division 1 and 2, and Class 2, Division 1 and 2 rated for hazardous locations. This start/stop push-button switch is constructed for heavy-duty use and is factory sealed, eliminating the need for added seal fittings and compound. The switch is enclosed in a separate sealing chamber that has smooth, double flanges that mate both to the cover and the mounting enclosure to provide flame-tight joints. Stainless steel hex-head screws attach the sealing chamber to the cover and mounting enclosure to ensure complete sealing. The housing for this explosion-proof switch is made of a malleable iron body with a cast copper-free aluminum alloy cover, epoxy powder-coated for a natural finish.

UL 698 listed, Larson Electronics's EPS-2XPB-SG-MS explosion-proof push-button switch is designed for use in oil and gas refineries, paint manufacturing plants, grain elevators and other areas where hazardous gases and dusts may be present.

Rated for 10 A at 600 V, the push-button switch provides a manual start and stop control for small AC and DC motors that are normally found in processing and manufacturing plants. Larson Electronics positions the UL 698-listed switch as ideal for use in locations where hazardous gases and dusts may be present, such as chemical plants, oil and gas refineries, paint manufacturing plants, gas-loading terminals, grain elevators, and metal handling or finishing areas. It may also be used in non-hazardous areas where a rugged switching device is required.
