Phoenix Contact recently received FF-846 registration for its 8- and 12-spur Zone 1 barriers. Designed with many new features not presently available in the market, the barriers offer multiple shielding options, an innovative power start-up method, and spur over-current restart technique. Weighing about a kilogram, the lightweight low-profile design offers increased 2g vibration and 15g shock resistance values. The barriers have spurs isolated in groups of four, and comply with the Entity/FISCO parameters.

The DIN rail-mounted barrier offers connectivity to one side, and occupies a footprint of just less than an 8 ½” x 11” sheet of paper (142 mm x 279 mm) in a control cabinet or junction box. In addition, standard shielding rail accessories can be used within this same footprint. The device has IECEx, ATEX, and UL approvals, is ANSI-ISA 71.04 G3 (Harsh) tested and is suited for operating temperature of -40°C to 80°C.
