PEPPERL & FUCHS
Rotary encoders for harzardous areas flame proof or intrinsically safe
Pepperl+Fuchs offers rotary encoders with two different ignition protection types. They are distinguished between the ignition protection type “flame proof enclosure” (EEx d) and the ignition protection type “Intrinsic Safety” (EEx i).
Ignition protection type EEx d
Ignition protection type EEx i
In case of the ignition protection type EEx i the voltage and current levels are kept at such a low level that the occurrence of an ignition spark is prevented, thus preventing the ignition of an explosive atmosphere. The following devices are designed in accordance with this ignition protection type:
