MANUAL CALL POINTS ARE SIL2 COMPLIANT

The STExCP8 range of manual call points are SIL2 compliant to IEC 61508, allowing system integrators greater confidence when designing systems requiring an enhanced safety integrity level.

Made by E2S Warning Signals and available in Australia from Mechtric, these robust devices are part of the comprehensive STEx family of explosion/flameproof audible and visual signalling devices and feature highest grade 316L stainless-steel enclosures.

Designed for installation in the harshest of onshore and offshore environments, the call points and push buttons are IECEx and ATEX approved for use in Zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas for fire and gas alarm systems and emergency shutdown and process control applications. Four different operating mechanisms are available: a break glass call point and three pushbuttons with momentary activation, tool reset latching and dual action manual reset.

The break glass unit employs a plastic-coated glass element for operator safety and an optional stainless steel lift flap is available to prevent inadvertent operation.

Dual M20 cable entries are provided that can be orientated for top or bottom cable entry with a further M20 entry on the side. All unused entries are fitted as standard with stainless-steel blanking plugs.
