Explosion protection

Explosion protection

WAGO's explosion protection has proven itself for decades in Ex applications and it ensures seamless protection that can be adapted flexibly to constantly-changing requirements. Learn more about why you are a step ahead with our Ex protection and whether it is also important for you.

Explosion protection is among the legally-required safety-relevant task areas of system engineers and planners. And this not without reason: explosive atmospheres can arise nearly anywhere. It's not just the usual suspects such as the chemical industry, mining, and gas and oil production work with substances that form an explosive atmosphere when mixed with oxygen; there are flammable combinations in many industries every day, even where you might not expect them. This happens in the textile industry as well as in areas such as regenerative energy production from sustainable raw materials. The systems installed there must fulfill the requirements of explosion protection.

Ex protection is relevant for you if you manufacture machines and systems for the following industries, for example:

  • Pharmaceutical Industry
  • Food Industry
  • Textile Industry
  • Regenerative Energies
  • Automobile Industry (paint lines, etc.)

Products for Ex protection must fulfill special requirements with respect to ignition protection. Added to these are that special solutions are frequently used for Ex protection. Here, WAGO offers precisely what planners and system integrators want. Our flexible explosion protection product line can be combined safely and economically in just the right proportions – and this with a uniform system from non-Ex areas to Ex areas to the Ex areas of overall production. The ongoing competitive pressure makes it necessary today to exploit all optimization potential in order to achieve an advantage with respect to safety, flexibility, productivity, and sustainability. With our control and connection technology for Ex protection, you can start up machines and systems in areas subject to explosion more quickly and safely and also reduce operating costs thanks to maintenance-free components.

Advantages of WAGO products in your systems or machines for Ex areas:

  • Economical system operation
  • Quick start-up/service times thanks to modular concepts
  • Reduction of operating costs thanks to maintenance-free and vibration-proof connection technology
  • Adjustments can be made quickly thanks to optimal form factor and versatility
  • Thanks to global ship approvals, optimally suited for on/offshore areas

Also for Ex applications: WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 XTR for extreme application conditions as an exciting video

Automation technology

Future-proof, time saving automation technology from WAGO increases efficiency in industry and building technology. The product portfolio for open-loop control, closed-loop control and visualization includes for example components from the I/O systems, such as fieldbus couplers, panels or controllers (PLCs) for the most commonly used fieldbus systems such as PROFIBUS or MODBUS (ETHERNET). The programmable devices here are based on CODESYS. For applications that were developed in conventional programming languages such as C/C++, solutions are also available as open platforms based on a real-time capable “Embedded Linux” operating system. Our components ensure reliable and safe operation round the clock for applications with particular requirements such as explosion protection or functional safety.

An extensive product portfolio from our electronics range, including power supply units, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), transducers, isolation amplifiers, current transformers and AC/DC converters, as well as optocouplers and relays, is available for optimum supply, conversion and protection.

Connection technology

Simple, safe, maintenance free: For DIN rails, circuit boards or as connectors in dado trunking, in junction boxes or control cabinets – WAGO offers the right electrical connection technology for every application.

Thanks to the spring pressure connection technology, WAGO products reduce your wiring requirements and prevent downtimes and service costs. The product range includes the well-known “WAGO clamp,” rail-mounted terminal blocks, different connectors for circuit boards or modular empty housings for individual electronic solutions. Different thermal transfer printers are available for labeling the products. A wide range of different SMD terminal blocks are the ideal choice for LED applications and industrial electronics. The advantages of our efficient products benefit applications in a wide range of sectors, such as building technology, machine building, installation engineering, and power engineering.
