Honeywell’s MICRO SWITCH™ BX Hazardous Area Limit Switch family has been expanded to include the new MICRO SWITCH™ BX2 Series featuring a corrosion-resistant stainless steel housing. The BX2 Series delivers corrosion resistance and provides both cost and time savings to the end user. The stainless steel housing helps protect the switch mechanism from corrosion often present in chemical processing plants, off-shore/near shore sites, and other hazardous areas. The MICRO SWITCH™ BX2 can also save up to four-weeks down time when replacing rusty, unsafe switches along with minimizing unplanned down time.
To comply with explosion-proof switching requirements, the flame path within the switch housing is designed to contain and cool escaping hot gases and fumes that could cause an explosion outside of the switch.
