The ATEX certified control stations provide safe circuit control and/or selection in potentially explosive atmospheres. Pilot lights are available to provide visual assurance that an electrical function is being performed at a remote or local location. These polyester control stations are ideal for the control of equipment at power, chemical and petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, re-verse osmosis plants, pulp and paper processing plants and various other industrial applications.

Appleton Unicode 2 Series uses the Ex de method of protection which eliminates the need for external seals. Unicode 2 Series features a choice of DIN rail mounted high performance contact block suitable for low intensity (less than 5 mA). TS35 rail mounted components are held securely in place during operation and easily removed for service.
