Three models in QUINT POWER line now rated for IECEx, ATEX, and Class I, Division 2 applications

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Phoenix Contact’s QUINT POWER family of DIN rail DC/DC power converters now includes three models listed for IECEx, ATEX, and  Class I, Division 2 applications. These approvals allow for global acceptance and ensure high reliability in critical applications.

In process applications such as oil and gas, the DC/DC converters commonly provide galvanic isolation for sensitive 24 V controllers. They can also monitor and regulate the battery voltage in a back-up power application. This technology for the DC/DC converters is complemented by its ability to provide current pulses to trip breakers (selective fuse breaking technology) and to monitor the voltage or current on the DC output.
