Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds launches EBMX enclosure technology
By Ellen Cools
September 22, 2017 — Eaton has launched EBMX enclosures that use clamping technology for hazardous areas to help oil & gas and other industrial customers “enhance safety and improve productivity”.
The NEMA 7-classified enclosures are designed to automatically apply even pressure across the flame path between the cover and body. This design enhances safety by reducing installation errors due to missing or improperly torqued bolts, says Eaton. Designed for motor control devices—including starters, combination-starters, disconnect switches and circuit breakers—the enclosure is rated for 65,000 ampere interrupting capacity (KAIC) at 480V, meets CE Code requirements, and is built to withstand temperatures from -50ºC to 60ºC.
