Hazardous area safety devices are designed specifically for hazardous environments or locations. They are able to contain explosions and prevent the igniting of external hazardous atmospheres. Available explosion-proof safety devices include cable-pull safety rope switches, safety limit switches and tongue interlock safety switches.
Hazardous area safety devices perform all the functions of standard safety devices but are designed for the most hazardous environments. Available in a variety of housings, including plastic, cast aluminum and stainless steel, these IDEM products are manufactured with ATEX Exd IIC T6 certified explosion-proof contacts. All electrical switching elements are also encapsulated. Available devices include:

IDEM hazardous area safety limit switches provide positively operated switching contacts to verify the position of machine elements or other moving parts for safety-related purposes. They operate just like traditional safety limit switches but are explosion-proof. A wide range of housing and actuator types are available.
IDEM hazardous area tongue interlock switches have been developed to satisfy the latest IECEx and ATEX standards to provide explosion-proof switching while offering the same interlocking fit as general-purpose and harsh duty interlock switches. These are ideal for hazardous locations in various industries including oil, chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing and many others.
IDEM hazardous area cable-pull switches operate just like general-purpose cable-pull switches but satisfy the latest IECEx and ATEX standards to provide explosion-proof switching in hazardous locations in various industries including oil, chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing and many others.
