Larson Electronics LLC has announced the release of an explosion proof threaded enclosure, which supplies operators with housing for compact equipment in flammable work sites. This ATEX-rated four-hub accessory has a blank cover and is compatible with surface mount configurations.

The Larson Electronics EPL-AEC-B2-2XM25-2XM32 explosion proof threaded enclosure provides operators a safe and secure location to house equipment in hazardous and flammable environments such as, petroleum refineries, chemical plants, paint spray booths, food manufacturing facilities, grain storage centers and more. This enclosure is ATEX-rated, as well as Class I, Division 1 and 2, Zones 1 and 2, Class II, Division 1 and 2, and Class III, Divisions 1 and 2. The unit minimizes any possibilities of electrical wiring and equipment becoming a source of ignition in flammable locations, where the wiring and equipment must be located within the hazardous area.

The EPL-AEC-B2-2XM25-2XM32 is constructed of strong copper-free aluminum with an electrostatically applied power epoxy/polyester, and can withstand temperatures of -20°C to +60°C. This unit includes a blank over and 180 cubic inches of volume, ideal for compact equipment. This explosion proof enclosure is compatible with surface mount configurations and offers operators two hub sizes for access to the enclosure; two M25 hubs and two M32 hubs.

“The EPL-AEC-B2-2XM25-2XM32 is ideal for operators  who must house wiring and electrical equipment within a hazardous environment,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “The ATEX enclosure prevents the equipment from catching fire in flammable sites, which would cause much larger problems.”
