Marechal has introduced a new range of multi-contact (12, 25 or 37 contacts) ATEX electrical connectors that have been designed for use in hazardous areas. The connectors are compliant to the 94/9/CE safety standard for explosive environments, and offer watertight sealing to CEI 60529 (IP66/IP67). They also include corrosion resistant contacts and are easy to operate.
The connectors are available in single latch PXN12C, or dual latch DXN25C and DXN37C formats. In addition, Marechal ATEX sockets and appliance inlets can be wall mounted, inclined, or installed as coupler sockets. This range of configurations and mounting options allows these connectors to fit a variety of process applications.
With fast and easy connection and disconnection, Marechal ATEX connectors enhance operator safety by containing arc flashes within the socket. Housed in a metal casing, the silver nickel butt contact system is corrosion resistant which improves durability and provides reliability despite the presence of contaminants or water.
