Turck Australia have expanded their offering of FM approved 12mm, 18mm and 30mm 3-wire DC barrel sensor and cordset combinations. Now, quick disconnect sensors may be used in Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D environments when equipped with a Turck lokfast guard. Turck sensors with potted-in cable for use with conduit are also FM approved for these locations.
Turck lokfast guards render quick disconnections not ‘normally arcing’ by eliminating access to the coupling nut and requiring a tool for removal. The ability to use quick disconnect technology enables customers to install sensors faster and at a lower installed cost than traditional conduit methods. All Turck sensors that carry FM approval also carry IEC IP 68 degree of protection.
Turck’s ITC rated M12 eurofast or 7/8 16UN minifast connectors and cable are also FM approved when used with the lokfast guard. The extensive line of products from Turck Australia includes advanced sensors, measurement, instrumentation, connectivity, interface and networks for factory and process automation markets that meet clients' application demands.
