Increased Safety Unicode 2 Series stainless steel control stations and switches, manufactured by Appleton ATXare ideal for use in hazardous areas and washdown areas. A variety of push buttons, selector switches, illuminated push buttons, control and load break switches and LED pilot lights are available for use in conjunction with contactors or magnetic starters for the remote control of motors. 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.

Contact block technical data: IEC rated operating voltage (Ue): 500 Vac – 110 Vdc. IEC switching capacity: AC12: 16 Amp/400 Vac, AC14: 10 Amp/400 Vac, AC15: 6 Amp/500 Vac, DC13: 2 Amp/24 Vdc and 1 Amp/110 Vdc. NEMA switching capacity: A600: 10 Amp/600 Va.

Selector switch technical data: IEC rated operating voltage: 690 Vac. IEC rated operating current: maximum 16 Amp. IEC switching capacity: AC1: 16 Amp/690 Vac, AC15: 16 Amp/415 Vac, AC3: 8 Amp/500 Vac, AC3: 4 Amp/690 Vac, AC3: 16 Amp/690 Vac, DC1: 10 Amp.
