Extreme position switchgear
There are often high demands on the design of a switch. And as if this were not enough, the work environment where these substances are handled are often located outdoors, where damp and extreme temperatures pose additional challenges to electric components. Read more about extreme switchgear.
Robust and durable switchgear
Last but not least, switching devices in these environments are often treated roughly, without due care and attention. With all this in mind, the steute business unit "Extreme" develops and produces robust and durable switchgear.
Anti-corrosive, dust-proof and extremely impact-resistant
Two recent additions to steutes Extreme range are the Ex 97 and the Ex 99 position switch series with standard dimensions to DIN EN 50047 and DIN EN 50041. They are anti-corrosive, dust-proof and extremely impact-resistant. They can be used in dust Ex-zones 21 and 22, as well as gas Ex-zones 1 and 2. Another special feature is their suitability for use in subzero temperatures down to -60 °C.
As an alternative to electromechanical switchgear, steute also produces Ex RC M 20 KST magnetic sensors, which are made from impact-resistant plastic and which also display truly Extreme characteristics. For example, they work in temperatures down to -60°C and yet are still able to pass the 7-Joule impact test required by the Ex standards authorities. And because they are perfectly sealed, they are extremely durable, even in very dusty environments.
