Hazardous Area Limit Switches

VPX Series

cULus. ATEX. IEC Ex. IP66, NEMA 4, 4X, 6, 13. Div 1: Class I: B, C, D. Div 1: Class II: E, F, G

The MICRO SWITCH VPX Series switches are built especially for outdoor use in potentially hazardous atmospheres. The switch enclosures are constructed to withstand the pressure of an internal explosion. Flame paths cool the exploded gases to a point less than the lowest safe operating temperature of the surrounding gas.

The VPX Series versions equipped with the inductive proximity switches has the Intrinsically Safe (IS) rating. Regardless of where the equipment or machinery is designed, built or installed, the VPX Series products carry global agency coverage.

The VPX Series switches have standard rugged die-cast aluminum housing. The products housing is weather sealed for outdoor use and comply with NEMA 4X requirement for protection against corrosion, in addition to various NEMA enclosure standards.

The product’s o-ring seals make the enclosure rain tight, but are outside of required flame paths so explosion proof requirements are maintained. The VPX Series switches are available in multiple colors and angles, visible from all directions. Unless special ordered, all basic switches operate on clockwise and counterclockwise rotation.
