The range of PCB terminal blocks and plug-in connectors with Ex approval is specially designed for use in potentially explosive areas.
The Phoenix Contact PCB terminal blocks and plug-in connectors with Ex approval are designed for use in potentially explosive areas. As such, the range meets the requirement for use in process technology, for example.
Choose between plug-in and non-plug-in solutions. In addition, the plug-in connector PCB terminal blocks and headers are designed for wave soldering processes.
The following options for connecting the conductors ensure the necessary flexibility:
Highest priority is afforded to the safety of individuals, machines, and buildings and the protection of the environment. The prevention of explosions also plays an important role. Explosions can occur when oxygen, a combustible material, and a source of combustion meet.
The products have component approval according to the IEC/EN 60079-0 and IEC/EN 60079-7 standards, which define the requirements for devices in potentially explosive atmospheres.
