Explosion Proof and Intrinsically Safe Coaxial/RF Barrier Coupler Fitting Zone 1

SKU 499 Category Tags , ,

Explosion-Proof Antenna Coupler permits the installation of non-Ex certified antennas in hazardous areas. This coupler is designed to be used directly with listed explosion proof housings or conduit fittings.

Description

An integrated blocking circuit prevents hazardous energy reaching the antenna if a radio, modem or access point failure occures. It also allows for antenna removal in hazardous areas.

The coupler’s robust design allows for connection to practically any radio and antenna. It is a highly flexible and cost effective solution to hazardous area radio system deployment. The coupler can also be used as a cable bulkhead.

Fitting is approved for hazardous locations and can be installed with a simple wrench.

 

SHORT CIRCUIT PROTECTION

Includes integrated blocking circuitry.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

All required circutry is recessed into fitting and encapsulated against harsh environments

CERTIFICATION

The RX Series is certified Atex, IECEx and for USA&Canada as an apparatus, and can be installed per the conditions of acceptability, without further assessment. North America approval (USA&Canada) includes class & divisions and zones. IECEx certification is issued from an Australian notified body, therefore RX can be installed in Queensland mines.

NO SEALING FITTING REQUIRED

Permits a wide variety of passive antennas to be installed in hazardous areas. Antennas may be removed and/or installed with power on. Perfect for a cable bulkhead connection.

ISOLATED ANTENNA GROUND

Optional antenna ground isolation (RX1..) from housing ground, combined with a capacitive circuit, solves ground loop issues in case of remote mounted antennas and prevents potential ground noise to interfeare with RF signal (patent pending).
