Pepperl+Fuchs' introduces the 5000Q Purge and Pressurization System

Dec. 2, 2010
System provides a means of operating general purpose equipment in classified areas, or in environments that are highly corrosive or dusty
With a robust display screen and intuitive menus, the field-configurable 5000Q system facilitates simple installation and safe, seamless operation of general purpose equipment, mounted in certified enclosures, within Zone 2, Zone 22 hazardous areas. It’s compact size (122 mm x 120 mm x 90 mm) and easy-to-mount components make it simple for users to quickly mount the 5000Q onto an existing enclosure. An integral pressure sensor also facilitates automatic purging and pressurization through the digital solenoid valve. The 5000Q purge and pressurization system also allows the direct connection of PT100 RTD temperature sensors, which provide alarm contact outputs for user configurable set points. Should the temperature exceed these set points, the digital valve will activate to automatically cool the enclosure’s interior.
