Explosion Proof Actuator

October 29, 2021

While standard supervised latching solenoid actuators meet the needs of most gaseous fire suppression systems, they cannot be used in hazardous locations. Many hazardous location systems rely on a combination of electric and pneumatic actuators and require separate enclosures to prevent flame propagation. The Explosion Proof Actuator with Supervision is a simpler, more reliable solution.

In this Firecast, TLX discusses why the Explosion Proof Actuator with Supervision is different from other hazardous location solutions and delves into its special design features that allowed it to achieve UL HazLoc, ATEX, and IECEx certifications.
