Where other switching devices cannot cope, the products in our business field Extreme are in their element. They have been especially developed for use in extreme environments, e.g. high or low temperatures, explosive zones, very hygienic areas for foodstuffs or very dirty production halls. Examples from our comprehensive range include safety sensors in degree of protection IP 69, vibration-resistant Hall sensors, immersion-resistant foot switches in degree of protection IP 68, robust emergency pull-wire switches for underground mining applications and salt fog-resistant position switches in degree of protection IP 66.
Switching devices for use in potentially explosive areas, which have been certified in accordance with European and international standards such as ATEX, IECEx and country-specific regulations such as EAC and Nepsi, form a focal point of this business area.
