Pepperl+Fuchs’ complete family of electrical explosion protection and accessories is a key component in hazardous locations where people and equipment must be protected. The company’s electrical explosion protection equipment (EPE) portfolio includes a wide range of enclosure sizes and styles, providing optimal design configurations for nearly all hazardous area applications.

Pepperl+Fuchs now offers globally certified enclosures and stocks several standardized sizes of explosion-proof ATEX, IECEx, and North American certified EJB and EJBX enclosures.

The Class I, Division 1, and Zone 1 enclosures are suitable for Groups B, C, and D / IIB+H2 with Type 4, 4X, 7, 9, Ex d, and IP66/67 ratings. They feature stainless-steel mounting and hinged hardware options, and are available in several sizes with optional windows. With Pepperl+Fuchs’ new 4X overpressure testing certification, empty enclosures can be purchased to tap and drill in the field.

“These new enclosures and solutions carry ATEX, IECEx, and North American certifications and are capable of being used as stand-alone terminal boxes or in combination with other equipment in accordance with Pepperl+Fuchs’ own system certifications,” says David Hohenstein, technology director. “This flexibility gives system builders and OEMs the option of specifying a complete, certified solution from Pepperl+Fuchs and incorporating the product as part of a turnkey offering.”

Enclosures are manufactured from high-quality stainless steel or copper-free aluminum with increased corrosion resistance. Their durability and design meet the requirements of many industries, including offshore and marine applications. Corresponding degrees of protection and ambient temperature ranges ensure long-term durability and safe operation. The enclosures are typically suitable for temperatures from -25 °C to +60 °C (-50 °C for ATEX/IECEx). They can be rated for temperatures as high as +120 °C.

“With a complete range of solutions for both Zone and Division applications, Pepperl+Fuchs has the products and expertise to satisfy the safety and operational requirements of today’s process automation environments,” adds Hohenstein.

Having a workforce that’s well trained on current technologies and equipment is critical for any manufacturer. When workers lack necessary skill sets, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes that result in costly downtime. Without proper training, employees are also less productive and have lower job satisfaction. They often feel as though they aren’t moving forward in their career and get discouraged. In addition, the correlation between well-trained workers and a safer manufacturing environment shouldn’t be overlooked.

Clearly, the importance of industrial training must be a key consideration for employers. Unfortunately, developing a workforce with necessary knowledge isn’t always easy. A variety of factors are creating a serious skills gap, and many companies are struggling to find ways to address the challenges.

What drives the requirement for accurate, high-quality labels? With so much hanging in the balance for manufacturers and retailers competing on a global scale, there's no good reason to ignore the need for label quality. Mislabeled packaging could have consequences that range from wasted product to (potentially severe) consumer health issues.

Let's take a look at four major areas that illustrate the importance of ensuring the accuracy and legibility of product and packaging labels and discuss a solution that can help avoid errors.

Area 1: General product traceability

Product traceability, in a general sense, is essential for consumer safety, regulatory compliance and overall quality perception. If there’s a problem with a product, traceability allows the consumer, retailer or another entity to quickly locate and segregate defective products in the event of a recall.
