007 M6 Switchboxes

ATEX Certified EEx ed IIC / IIB T850C (II 2 GD)
Back

A device for monitoring on-off valves in Zone 1 or Zone 2 hazardous areas and dust Zones 21 and 22.

Specifying the 007 M6 EEx ed IIC/IIB T6 Switchbox from K Controls will provide you with an angled body design and two point cover fixing. This will give you quick and easy access to the internals and a reduction in your commissioning times. As the enclosure is classified EEx e there are no flamepaths to maintain and the unit is lighter and more compact than EEx d equivalents. Add to this the option of stainless steel and the product becomes particularly suitable for offshore applications.

007C Switch / Solenoid

Control Centres
Non Hazardous Areas and Versions ATEX Certified EEx ia and EExd (II 2 GD)
Back

An integrated device for monitoring and controlling on/off valves

The addition of one or more solenoids and a pneumatic control valve to the 007 Switchbox transforms the product into a fully integrated switch solenoid control centre. The solenoids are protected from site damage and like the 007T connection is via a single multicore cable. There are EEx ia and EEx d options and special versions for double acting stay put, dual redundant (safety related) systems and single conduit connection of the electrical and pneumatic signals.

  • Replaces separate switchbox and solenoid
  • Solenoid protected from site damage
  • Ingress protection to IP667 (7 joules impact)
  • Wiring via a single multi-core cable
  • Eliminates cabling, glands and local junction boxes
  • Neat, compact design with highly accessible internals
  • Polyester coated aluminium
  • Mechanical or proximity end of travel switches
  • EEx ia IIC or EEx d IIB versions
  • Versions for explosive gasses and dust. Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22

Control Centres
Back

Devices for monitoring and controlling 90° valves during tank filling. Devices for monitoring and controlling 180° three way valves


In the 007C two internal solenoids and a specially configured pneumatic control valve are used to achieve three position control. Internal limit switches are used to set the intermediate position and two additional switches together with a special cam are optionally available to provide position indication of all three positions.

  • Less complex and expensive than a positioner
  • Uses a simple switched voltage input to vary position
  • Neat, compact design with highly accessible internals
