ELECTRONICS:TURCK announced the new 7/8-16UN minifast® explosion-proof feed-through receptacle, which is CSA certified as a secondary conduit seal. This quick-disconnect solution can serve as a secondary conduit seal to prevent gas migration or as a boundary seal, when used with a TURCK CSA-certified cordset. The receptacle may be applied in Class I, Division 2 locations without the use of intrinsically safe circuits or in Class I, Division 1 locations with intrinsically safe circuits.
Fully potted in a durable 316 stainless-steel housing, the explosion-proof feed-through receptacle is designed to withstand 2,000 psi of pressure. It also provides IEC IP67 protection against liquid ingress when a mating connector is attached. The receptacle installs directly into 1/2-14NPT threaded conduit entries and is rated for 600V and 9A. When used as a secondary conduit seal, the receptacle is limited to 30V and 600 mA.
