Rockwell 855X Series B

Rockwell Automation has released Allen-Bradley 855X Hazardous Location Signaling Devices, which can help industrial operators meet the latest global hazardous-location ratings and certifications.

The devices, which include horns, beacons and combination horn-and-beacon units, are suitable for wet and harsh industrial environments in the paper and wastewater-treatment industries, as well as in oil and gas, food and mining.

In most cases, these new 855X devices (Series B) are drop-in replacements for the original 855X devices (Series A).

They also offer triple certification in a single unit, with cULus, ATEX/IEC EX and Class/Zone, so they can be applied globally.

The new 855X products feature two conduit entry options for flexibility in power connections to suit the application requirements. The beacon’s colour can be changed quickly and easily in the field by simply replacing the beacon lens with the desired colour, without affecting the device’s ingress protection rating.

The new 855X standalone multifunction LED beacon and combination radial sounder/LED beacon feature rugged yet lightweight, corrosion-free construction.

They also have ingress protection certified to UL Type 4/4X/13, IP66/67.
