Ex Junction Box In Water Tower Pump Application
An applied raw water tower pump on board a Jack-up Rig.
The Ex junction box for the water tower pump must have a large power and signal load and control. It must be EX-rated for use in hazardous area Zone 2, with a minimum ingress protection rating of IP56.
Other important factors are the cost and safety control.
The connector would also need to provide a return signal when they mate. Further reading is available on ingress protection ratings and Hazardous Area Zones, Definitions & Explosion Protection.
SOLUTION provided by Amphenol
Amphenol Industrial Star Line EX connectors have a special design which makes them an ideal solution. It has the correct power and signal carrying capabilities and by adding in a jump wire, the plug can return the signal to the junction box when the plug and receptacle mate. The use of EEx e stainless steel junction boxes and terminal blocks can reduce the size.
