ATAM presents its new solenoid valve cable connectors, with ATEX (EU Directive) and IECEx (international) certification, developed for fixed or mobile applications in hazardous areas. With the support of experts from the ATEX world, ATAM has self-certified its Form A (18 mm) and Form B (11 mm) connectors for use in 3G (gas/vapours) and 3D (powder/dust) category equipment according to the ATEX classification, thus ensuring a suitable level of protection in Zone 2 and Zone 22.

ATAM’s new ATEX-certified connectors stem from requests by its customer base, that already uses the company’s ATEX-certified coils, to also produce connectors, thus guaranteeing the all-round compatibility and, therefore, safety of the application. The connectors can also be used with coils not necessarily produced by ATAM.

Versatile kits with accessories 

To meet another market requirement, namely maximum versatility, the connectors are supplied both in kits with standard DIN connections and disassembled, together with a whole range of accessories such as gaskets, cable clamps, and cables in different shapes and formats. For example, the cable clamp comes in two versions that ensure maximum versatility for the diameter of cables that can be clamped while the gaskets come in both flat and lip versions. In short, this is a comprehensive kit designed to cover the most widespread applications in the market with a single product.

Joint component development for optimized reliability

With the introduction of Form A and Form B cable connectors, ATAM now expands its operating scope to potentially explosive environments with products - connector + coil - that benefit from joint development, while also relying on a state-of-the-art test laboratory. This allows the company to simulate the combined use of the two products and to verify the sealing strength of the components even under extreme requirements. The result is an excellent solution in terms of reliability, quality and affordability.

By performing numerous tests the connector kits are all supplied with detailed instructions for quick and accurate installations in compliance with the stringent regulations.
