Barksdale 420X series explosion proof transducers, available from Measurement Solutions , prevent an explosion from occurring when operated in a division 1 environment. Barksdale 420X series explosion proof transducers prevent personal injury and machinery damage by preventing the explosion in the first place.
Energy generated within the transducer is of a low level, preventing the ignition of intermittently present flammable vapours. External zener barriers are not required to meet UL requirements for a non-incendive installation.
The low cost of not having to install zener barriers means that the positive aspects of intrinsically safe and explosion proof are combined in Barksdale non-incendive transducers. Barksdale offer three models that include series 423X (0-5V), series 425X (4-20mA) and series 426X (0-10V).
These explosion proof transducers have the following features:
- Diffused silicon sensor for high accuracy
- Explosion proof enclosure for hazardous locations
- Higher EMI, ESD and RFI protection
- Rugged stainless steel construction
- NEMA 4X, 7 and 9
