Field-mount device enclosure certified explosion-proof

Enclosure allows use of hockey-puck style instruments in hazardous locations.

08/12/2010


Moore Industries’ BH field-mount instrumentation enclosures CSA International has certified Moore Industries’ BH field-mount instrumentation enclosures explosion-proof, which allows users of hockey-puck instruments to deploy such devices in hazardous locations. The company adds that the housing meets standards for enclosing indoor and outdoor electronic instruments approved for use in explosion-proof, dust-ignition proof, and intrinsically-safe locations.

With the new certificate, the BH enclosure’s full rating includes: Class I, Groups A, B, C, and D; Class II, Groups E, F, and G; Class III; Type 4X; and IP66. Prior approvals include Factory Mutual (FM) explosion-proof, dust-ignition proof, NEMA 4X, IP66, and ATEX flame-proof certifications. To meet NEMA 4X and IP66 ratings, the BH housing is resistant to ultraviolet rays and chemicals. Its high impact structure protects instruments even in harsh field conditions.
