ATEX valve islands
ASCO Numatics innovative I/O valve manifolds feature a high flow rate and a broad range of fieldbus options. Our vast array of valve sizes for every application includes lightweight and compact designs, plus some that eliminate internal wiring for greater manufacturing efficiency.
All our system's electronics modules plug together for easy assembly and field changes, in either centralised or highly distributed, flexible applications. Simple installation and setup reduce overall costs. Valve islands are offered with the industries widest variety of fieldbus protocols and for hazardous and non hazardous areas as defined by ATEX.
Safe Area / Non Hazardous Area: An area in which an explosive (gas or dust) atmosphere is not present
Zone 2-22: An area in which an explosive (gas or dust) atmosphere is not likely to occur in normal operation and, if it occurs, will only exist for a short time
