Quick Disconnects for Hazardous Areas

Turck offers a quick and inexpensive solution for FM Approved Class 1 Division 2   wiring applications. A " or " male receptacle threads into the transmitters conduit port and the leads of the potted receptacle are then wired to the instruments terminal block. The connection has in ingress protection rating of IP67 which completely eliminates condensation or water ever entering the transmitter housing.

The other end of the cordset is then plugged into a Turck Conduit Adapter that mates directly to the standard conduit adapters provided by electrical supply houses (i.e. Crouse Hinds etc.) Then an explosion proof feed through is installed with a Lokfast ™ locking device which clips around the receptacle and cordset nuts preventing someone from accidentally unscrewing and breaking the electrical connection. A screwdriver can be used to pry open the Lokfast ™ connector for authorized disconnect.
