Rugged Enclosures Designed for Hazardous Locations
STB Enclosure Series
Weidmuller announces the introduction of the newly redesigned line of Klippon® STB stainless steel, polished and electro-polished enclosures for hazardous environment use. The Klippon® STB (Small Terminal Box) series, globally recognized for outstanding design and quality, now meets the latest cULus, ATEX, and GOST standards for hazardous area equipment, making them ideal for use in the process, oil and gas, and petrochemical industries.
The newly redesigned STB series offers a number of enhancements in addition to the hazardous location approvals. Made from high quality stainless steel, they are available in eight different sizes ranging from 4.7"x4.7"x 3" to 9.8"x15.8"x 5"- all with IP66 ingress protection. The STB series enclosures feature a high temperature silicone gasket that allows for a wider scope of applications where temperatures range from -50°C to +135°C. Gasket compression control is incorporated into the enclosure design to protect against over compression and eliminate the potential for loss in IP performance.
The STB series is designed to withstand the most aggressive industrial environments. The stainless steel ensures corrosion-resistance, even in applications where salt water is consistently present. They have an impact resistance rating of 7J for ATEX, and 10J for standard industrial grade applications.
Standard features include a welded internal and external ground stud, fitted to meet grounding requirements, and a ground screw installed on a completely removable lid. Also standard are pre-fitted mounting lugs to prevent the enclosure from vibrating loose from its mount during operation. An extensive line of accessories is available, including cable entries, adapters, blanking plugs, sealing washers, lock nuts and breather plugs.
