Enhancing the existing line of IDEC hazardous location products, new additions to the EB3 line of discrete input/output barriers with redundant outputs give users more flexibility when designing industrial equipment for hazardous locations.
IDEC offers three types of barriers (also known as isolators): EB3C, EB3N and EB3L. EB3C is for traditional discrete safety input contacts, which are isolated from both relay and solid state outputs. EB3N is for safety inputs, which are isolated from safety control devices. It also has redundant outputs. Lastly, EB3L is unique because it isolates inputs with safety lamp/LED and buzzer indicating outputs.
Perfect for multiple industries including oil & gas, mining, water treatment, agriculture, automated painting systems, petrochemical, semiconductor fabrication equipment, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, instrumentation, and food processing, IDEC EB3 barriers are smaller, more economical, and easier to use.
IDEC discrete barriers are particularly suited for control circuits that exist in Division 1 and Zone 0 & 1 areas. Although, EB3 barriers can also be combined together or with additional IDEC industrial automation and component devices (not necessarily designed for hazardous location use).
EB3 units have European ATEX ratings, UL Class 1 Zone 0, and are IEC60079 compliant.
