EGE Offer IGEX20Pa-Type Proximity Switches for Temperatures Down to -60 °C

Posted on 31 Mar 2020

Powelectrics offer 30 years’ sensor experience & supply sensors from over 100 reputable manufacturers. For that whole period, Powelectrics have been UK distributor for EGE high quality flow controllers, infrared, opto and ultrasonic sensors, capacitive proximity switches, light barriers and inductive proximity switches.

Always at the forefront to technology, EGE offer an exceptional range of low temperature proximity switches for easy direct connection in ATEX zones 0/20

These IGEX20Pa-type proximity switches withstand low temperatures down to -60 °C.

ATEX- and IECEx-certified for use in Ex zones 0 and 20, these sensors can be used in hazardous areas with gas or dust atmospheres, for example in filling stations and facilities with gas pipelines etc.

EGE now also offers easy-installation variants of these Polar-series proximity switches. Featuring the ignition protection type Ex m (encapsulation), these IGEX20Pa models can be employed in Ex zones 0 and 20 by themselves, without the need for additional switching amplifiers.

EGE supplies the sensors with IP67 and IP68 ingress protection and in M12, M18, and M30 designs.

Given a flush installation, the nominal switching distances are 2 mm, 5 mm, and 10 mm, depending on the design.

The proximity switches are connected via a 2-m FEP cable. EGE supplies them with different cable lengths on request.

The EGE ranges covers sensors that can withstand extremes of temperature (-230 to +250) and pressure as well as devices for ATEX environments. There is also an excellent range incorporating IOLink. More info here.
