Cumming, GA — December 5, 2012  AutomationDirect’s product offering now includes KILLARK hazardous location controls which are ideal for installations at petroleum refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants and other processing or storage facilities where flammable gases or vapors, combustible dusts or easily ignitable fibers or flyings are present.

Explosion-proof control devices are available in single or double pushbutton, maintained pushbutton, keyed and non-keyed selector switch, single and double pilot light and pilot light/pushbutton styles.

KILLARK hazardous location controlsAvailable factory-sealed control device cover assemblies feature a sealing plate between the arcing device and junction box which eliminates the need for external sealing.
