Presence detection ATEX zone

A BX04 area sensor is suited to perform an efficient and safe detection of objects on conveyors in a hazardous ATEX environment. With bigger distances the Ex lasers can be deployed.

Efficient and safe detection of objects on conveyors in an ATEX environment

In an ATEX zone it is important to be able to safely detect objects for example on a conveyor. Customers now often choose to run the conveyor continuously in an ATEX environment. By applying certified sensors, which carry out a presence detection (in an Atex zone), this is no longer required. This increases the lifespan, decreases the power consumption and reduces the maintenance costs.

Area sensor to reliably detect presence

A BX04 area sensor is the perfect solution. Due to the high switching frequency, this lightcurtain, with a range of 2 meters, is capable to detect presence and count passing objects. The sensors are usable for: Ex zones 1, 2, 21, and 22. If the distances are bigger, Ex lasers could be applied to solve this. For example the SP LAM 50 Ex d and the SP LAM 300 Ex d. These lasers have robust stainless steel housing and are suited for Atex zones: 1, 2, 21 and 22.
