den-feb-14-6Thomas & Betts' DTS hazardous area Ex panels and enclosures provide protection against explosions occurring, or in the unlikely event of an explosion they will contain that explosion.  The range includes junction boxes, instrumentation boxes, control boxes and stations that can be specified for use in different zones where gases and dust present a potential risk of explosion.  Now, custom built Ex d panels and enclosures can also be manufactured and tested to user requirements, offering ATEX compliant protection.

Customised enclosures provide hazardous area protection for industries as diverse as oil and gas, chemical and pharmaceutical, food and beverage production, power generation as well as many other sectors.  Applications include protection for motor starters, main breakers and measuring equipment.

Customisation can include a variety of components such as switches, contactors and relays.  Typically, the EJB custom built panel range can be supplied in a range of different sizes and a wide choice of components.  They are approved to EN 60079-0/1 and can be used for Ex d, IIB, II, Zone 1 and 2 applications, whilst also offering IP56 ingress protection.

The custom built panels are ideal for the marine environment thanks to anti-corrosion properties. The panels have a large internal volume and can be customised for different cable gland entries and sizes. Installations requiring boxes with a window for visual checks, can be met with the EJB-V range or can be used with a load-break switch and safety cut-off.

The new customised panel and enclosure range, together with a full complement of accessories, are featured in the new Thomas & Betts Hazardous Areas Product Catalogue.  It provides comprehensive technical data and ordering information for every product.  It can be viewed and downloaded at
