Enclosure specialist Schroff is now offering new additions to the ZONEX range of stainless-steel wall-mount enclosures, which are ATEX certified for housing electronic or electrical equipment in Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous locations.
Manufactured by Hoffman, one of Schroff’s sister companies within the Pentair Technical Products Group, the ZONEX range has been significantly expanded with 21 new sizes to complement the existing line-up of 13 models.
The new enclosures comprise hinge-cover versions in 16 standard sizes from 12 x 12 x 6in. to 36 x 24 x 8in., together with five small screw-cover models ranging in size from 4 x 4 x 3in. to 10 x 10 x 5in.
All ZONEX products now carry both European ATEX and international IECEx certification, and the hinge-cover models are also certified to the American AEx standard.
Fabricated from Type 316 stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance, the ZONEX enclosures feature one-piece continuous gaskets and brass internal and external earthing points.
Hinge-cover versions are supplied as standard with a full-size gasketed gland plate, welded-on wall-mounting brackets and a quarter-turn latch with 3mm double-bit insert for enhanced security. Available accessories include panels, breather drains, stopping plugs and extra gland plates.
In addition, Hoffman offers a ZONEX modification service with ATEX certification, enabling the enclosures to be customised to meet specific requirements regarding choice of materials (including high-temperature silicone gaskets for operation from -55 to 180degC), mounting brackets, holes and cut-outs, paint finish and terminal-block installation and marking.
