Beta 2 button and Beta 6 button unit with IECEx approval
JAY BETA ATEX IECEx Series
Following on from the successful release of the “Moka” Handheld control and the “Alto” transceiver late last year, Jay Electronique have now added the Beta 2 button and Beta 6 button units to their IECEx range. As with the previous models these are also approved for use in potentially explosive gas atmospheres classified zone 0, 1, 2, or dust classified zones 20, 21, 22.
The new models inherit all existing features of the SAFIR family such as a backlit, anti-reflection, LCD display able to indicate the battery charge level, the behaviour of the radio link, the name of the equipment being controlled remotely and feedback from the equipment such as weight of load, overload, limit switches, alarms or fault diagnostics. Navigation menus also allow you to configure the application, integrate a large number of functions or monitor a specific part of the equipment. Further customisation of logos and pictograms which appear on the screen is also available utilising the iDialog software supplied with each unit.
Safety is at the heart of the SAFIR product range with the emergency stop function certified “SIL 3” per EN 61508 or “PLe” per EN 13849 and the standard function buttons, certified to SIL2 according to EN61508 or PLd according to EN13849. Other options are available to enhance the safety of those applications that require it, such as infrared start-up, action zone limitation or validation buttons. Access to the radio remote control and certain functions can also be limited to authorised operators by password.
