Multi-pin hazardous-area connectors now available fully assembled in 48 hours
22 January 2010
PEI-Genesis has expanded the range of products it stocks from manufacturer Amphenol Industrial Operations to include the Amphe-EX series of ATEX-approved multi-pin hazardous-area connectors.
With its massive inventory of connector piece-parts and proprietary automated assembly machines, PEI-Genesis is able to assemble, test and despatch the Amphe-EX connectors in less than 48 hours from receipt of order.
Specifically designed for use in harsh environments such as those associated with oil and gas exploration, petrochemical plants and fuel storage sites, Amphe-EX is an extremely versatile miniature connector that accepts copper, coaxial or fibre-optic contacts.
The connectors can also be specified with RJ45 or USB inserts for applications such as data acquisition, process control, communications systems and embedded computers.
Capable of withstanding the most extreme environments, the Amphe-EX connectors feature machined aluminium components plated with a hard anodic coating for superior resistance to heat, corrosion and scratching. They utilise a double-lead threaded coupling and are IP68-rated to provide maximum protection against the ingress of dust and fluids.
Available connector styles include in-line receptacles, panel-mount receptacles and straight plugs, all of which come in a choice of seven shell sizes ranging from 9 to 21.
The connectors can be specified with crimp contacts in five sizes from 22D to 10, and the range offers a wide variety of insert patterns.
All Amphe-EX connectors are ATEX, AEX and IEC certified for Zone 1 rated applications and flameproof compliant to EN60079-0 and EN60079-1.
