ATEX Load Pin EX-LP-2.0

The ATEX / IECEX Load Pin cements DLM’s place as world leader in the supply of Load Pins and has been designed specifically for the rugged Oil and Gas industry, along with environments that could contain gas and/or flammable dust.

Suitable for use in Zone 1 and Zone 2 Hazardous areas, the Load Pin is certified using the Flame Proof Exd concept which allows design flexibility for internal signal conditioners and also negates the need to have additional barriers, taking the signal into the safe area.

Manufactured from high tensile Stainless Steel the load pin can have an array of electrical outputs and can be mechanically designed to meet client’s requirements.

DLM can custom design ATEX Load Pins for use in a wide variety of applications with sizes to suit clients exacting requirements.
