Circuit breaker system for hazardous locations
CAPAROC modules available with Class I, Div. 2 rating for North America,
and triple rating for use around the world
Middletown, Pa. – The CAPAROC electronic circuit breaker system from Phoenix Contact now includes modules approved for use in hazardous locations. Equipment installed in potentially explosive areas must meet stringent requirements to ensure reliability and safety standards.
Many existing CAPAROC parts have been tested and approved for Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, and D. This makes them suitable for use in hazardous locations in North America. Several modules – the status-reset power module and the two-channel modules – are triple-rated for use in hazardous locations anywhere in the world. In addition to the Class I, Division 2 rating, these modules are also approved for use in ATEX and IECEx locations.
The award-winning CAPAROC family uses data-driven power modules to customize overcurrent protection. With numerous feed-in power modules, circuit breakers, potential distribution modules, and current rails, CAPAROC makes it easy to design an intelligent system with communication. All parts of the system are UL 508 Listed. Select part numbers are approved for NEC Class 2.
