September 8, 2021 – AutomationDirect’s safety product offering now includes IDEM hazardous area safety devices. These safety devices provide similar functionality to their general-purpose counterparts but offer explosion-proof switching in hazardous locations.
All of these devices are manufactured with ATEX Exd IIC T6 certified explosion-proof contact blocks, which are encapsulated to contain explosions and prevent the ignition of hazardous materials.
New IDEM explosion-proof safety devices include tongue interlock safety switches, safety limit switches, and safety cable-pull switches. These devices are an excellent choice for use in the oil, chemical, pharmaceutical, and other hazardous industries.
AutomationDirect has also extended its existing line of general-purpose safety cable-pull switches. This new line extension allows for emergency cable lengths of up to 250 meters.
IDEM hazardous area safety devices start at $459.00, new extended length general-purpose cable-pull switches start at $169.00, and both have a 1-year warranty.
In business since 1994, AutomationDirect is a distributor offering thousands of industrial automation products for electrical control systems, including PLCs, operator interfaces, AC drives, motors, stepper systems, sensors, motor controls, enclosures and more.
