Emergency Stop Stations for Explosive Environments (Stainless Steel)

In electrical and safety engineering, hazardous locations are places where fire or explosion hazards may exist. Sources of such hazards include gases, vapours, dust and fibres which are combustible or flammable.

IDEM’s range of Emergency Stop Stations have been developed to operate in explosive environments. The internal contact block has been third party approved by IECEx to the latest ATEX standards.

Emergency stop switches are mounted on machines and sections of plant conveyors that cannot be protected by guards. In combination with any dual channel safety monitoring controllers, these devices can be used as emergency stops and monitored up to CAT4/PLe to ISO13849-1.

All of IDEM’s emergency stop switches come with a special safety trip lid mechanism, meaning that the safety contacts will open if the lid is removed from the body, adding an extra level of protection.

All IDEM’s emergency stop switches conform to European Standards EN ISO13850 and IEC60947-5-5. They feature a positive mechanical linkage between the switch contacts and the E Stop button. The switches are mechanically latched and can then only be returned to the operational condition by pressing the reset button, as required by EN ISO13850.

For the harsh environments like Food Processing, Pharmaceutical and Petro-Chemical Industries, the stainless steel 316 range offers protection up to IP69K for use in high pressure chemical cleaning or CIP/SIP applications. The IP69K enclosure protection (maintained by a double seal lid gasket) and can be high pressure hosed with detergent up to +60C and 100psi.
