BC11ML-CSW30H, hermetically sealed, 180VA inductive/100W resistive, mid-logic reed - 1 N.O. & 1 N.C
HERMETICALLY SEALED: Contact Blocks are Certified as “Non-Incendive”. Devices employing this method of protection are designed so that all electrical parts are a bonded part of the switch housing that forms an arcing chamber that is evacuated of all oxygen, filled with an inert gas, and then sealed to prohibit the exchange of gases with the surrounding environment. These devices are incapable of igniting the surrounding gases or vapor/air mixtures under normal operation. Devices of this type are suitable for use in Div. 2/ Zone 2 applications. Hermetically Sealed contact blocks are also extremely useful for switching low energy circuits or circuits applied in atmospheres containing oxidizing agents and pollutants that might effect the performance of silver switching and metal contact elements. Hermetically Sealed Switch performance is consistent and repeatable in almost any environment.
