DO YOU FILL OR EMPTY BIG BAGS? Then you should remember that many dusts in conjunction with air have a high risk of explosion. Flours, sugars or aluminum dusts are well known as an explosion hazard. But even the dust of products such as fertilizers, rubber, tobacco, spices and many other substances can cause explosions. Therefore, when processing such products, conductive big bags must be used. Grounding is required for these types of big bags to prevent ignition due to electrostatic charges.


The Grounding Control Device EKX-FIBC provides and monitors a safe grounding connection between the big bag and the designated ground point via two active clamps. The digital measuring technology prevents misuse or bypassing of the device by means of automatic object recognition. A fi lling release via the electronic control outputs and the highly visible LED indicator is only given if the connected big bag is properly recognized and safely grounded via both clamps. In case of an interruption of the ground connection, the control outputs lock and the optical LED indicator changes from green to red.


The EKX-FIBC can be used in gas and dust explosive atmospheres up to Zone 1/21. The main unit can be mounted at a distance of up to 20m to the workplace. The cable quick couplings at the optional external measuring module and the plain text diagnostic display in the main unit allow easy initial installation, handling and maintenance.


■ For all FIBC Type C according to IEC 61340-4-4 (107 Ω and 108 Ω)

■ Tamper-proof through digital measurement technology and reliable object detection (5-check-principle)

■ Simultaneous monitoring of two big bags is possible

■ Relay and NAMUR control outputs

■ Autodiagnosis system for permanent self-monitoring of all safety-related functions

■ Easy handling thanks to cable quick couplings and the integrated plain text OLED display

■ Mounting the main unit at a distance of up to 20m from the workplace is possible
