Compact airflow sensors for hazardous areas

EGE expands its range of explosion-proof flow sensors, adding the new LC5 GA EX22 series of airflow monitors for use in zone 2 and 22 environments with potentially explosive gas or dust atmospheres. The ATEX-certified, intrinsically safe and encapsulated airflow monitors in IP67 stainless-steel housings are available with M18 or G1/2 threads. They detect airflows at speeds from 0.5 m/s to 20 m/s with response times <5 s.

For accurate adjustment at a given flow velocity, the devices feature a potentiometer screw and a two-color LED on the front side. Red, green and flashing lights signal when the minimum or maximum output current in a standard signal range 4…20 mA have been reached. LC5 GA EX22 airflow monitors are designed for use in temperature ranges from -10 °C to 60 °C and come with a two-meter fixed PUR cable by default. EGE supplies the devices with longer cables on request.
