Deployment of augmented equipments have become one of the key trend in about all the major sectors whether it be manufacturing, automotive, food processing or mining and many more. The technological developments in each industry have met the objective of reducing the human efforts to a minimum level. This certainly has led to the requirement of better and advanced safety measures in line with the improved efficiency of the industrial processes. These industrial operations basically involve intensive use of heavy equipments to carry down the manufacturing processes. The past decade has experienced an immense rate of the employee fatalities because of the accidents caused due to either malfunctioning of the machinery or operator’s glitch.
Amphenol, a company well known for Industrial Safety products recently came up with an explosion proof heavy duty hazardous rated connecter device that assists the automation control and instrumentation process in a remarkable manner. The connector is fabricated with high grade of stainless steel with an additional high quality copper surface coating plated with silver. Amphenol’s connector device is made of sealed plugs and receptacles that are designed to serve mining industry equipment manufacturing purpose. The device is manufactured in accordance with safety regulations in Australia and is likely to achieve approval in the Chinese market.
In many industries manufacturing, processing and transporting or keeping inventory creates explosive atmosphere due to the formation of combustible gases in the surroundings and a minute malfunctioning can lead to a major industrial tragedy. To avoid these unanticipated hazardous accidents Larson Electronics, a supplier and manufacturer of industrial grade lighting equipment introduced explosion proof Step down transformer for perilous zones in the manufacturing areas. This 20 watt power converter explosion proof transformer that runs on 100 – 200 volt AC power can run the equipments requiring 24 volt electric power effectively. The device is equipped with systems that are capable of shutting down the unit in case of overloads or integral short circuits. The company also introduced explosion proof tool tap reel added with a single receptacle that can simply broaden the working reach of the tools and the lighting equipment. These are among the few developments that occurred in 2015 and companies are focusing in widening the scope of reducing industrial damage by keeping up better safety standards.
The Market for Explosion Proof Equipment in Automation and control systems market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.56% by 2020 as per a recent report published by IndustryARC. The safety devices manufacturers are consistently investing in R&D to develop products to serve the industrial purposes more effectively and efficiently. The stringent government regulations and reformed safety measures have spurred the adaptation of explosion proof products in the manufacturing processes that can either prevent or minimize the damage endured due to the flaw in the functioning of the mechanical or electrical devices.
