Compressed air is an integral part of modern factory and process automation. The combination of pneumatics and electronical I/O-systems that has been an ongoing trend for the past years, is now also continued in devices for hazardous areas. Product News: AirLINE Ex Type 8650
Bürkert offers the first modular, electropneumatic automation system for explosion-hazard zone 1/21: AirLINE Ex Type 8650. In conjunction with the Siemens SIMATIC ET 200iSP system, all options for the distributed combination of electrical and pneumatic systems, including extensive maintenance and diagnostic functions, are open.
Certified Cabinet Building for Zone 1
But for cabinet builders there is still a challenge: ATEX approved components by themselves are generally not sufficient to set up an approved cabinet. Therefore, Bürkert took a step forward and applied for the approvals for Zone 1 cabinets as well as their production. Our system solution center (Systemhaus) in Menden/Germany was successfully audited by the PTB as a ATEX-certfied manufacturer. Additionally, our pneumatic control cabinets for potentially explosive atmospheres were approved by the notified body KEMA (Certificate No.: KEMA 08ATEX0057 X).
With the new ATEX approved cabinets, Bürkert has taken it one big step further to be the qualified business partner of your choice.
