R. STAHL system solution example: Combination of an explosion-protected built-in HMI, remote I/O system and wireless communication technology

A specialised supplier with decades of experience and comprehensive knowledge in explosion protection, R. STAHL has been providing users with system solutions for automation applications in hazardous areas for 30 years. Based on R. STAHL's products and, if required, specific third-party components, these solutions can be implemented quickly, reliably and at predictable, attractive prices. An R. STAHL system solution is a technology package from one source, delivered tested, certified and ready-to-use. In contrast, users often need to invest an indeterminable amount of time and money when combining, integrating and adapting the required technology on their own, since they may lack current knowledge regarding the complex explosion protection requirements and the varying, constantly changing rules and certification requirements in different countries and regions. R. STAHL's engineering expertise not only extends to the selection and combination of suitable technology with different types of protection, but also includes harmonising e.g. various fieldbus solutions, for example implementing comprehensive communication options between control systems, remote I/O components and HMI devices.

In addition, R. STAHL draws on extensive know-how for special applications and areas, e.g. for preparing systems for extreme temperatures in desert or polar environments. The company is one of the very few suppliers worldwide to integrate and deliver components and systems in all types of protection, thereby enabling users to pursue all potential solutions for hazardous areas. System solutions for hazardous areas are based on R. STAHL's very wide range of modular components, which includes explosion-protected cable glands, lighting equipment, special plug connectors and customised housings, safety barriers and isolators, fieldbus and remote I/O technology as well as HMI units in all performance categories. The company is authorised to independently certify its systems for worldwide use according to explosion protection standards. Apart from providing ATEX documentation, R. STAHL can also ensure the required SIL classification of complete systems. Industry-specific approvals and certifications, such as FDA and GAMP validations for the pharmaceutical industry, or DNV and GL certifications for shipbuilding applications, are also supplied if required. Moreover, R. STAHL also operates a worldwide distribution and service network, providing a wide range of products and services for maintenance purposes and later adjustments or add-ons at short notice.

Company Background
For more than 80 years, R. STAHL has been a trendsetting manufacturer of safety technology for hazardous areas. Based in Waldenburg, Germany, the company is one of the world's leading suppliers of explosion-protected automation, control and distribution, installation, operating and monitoring, lighting, signaling and alarm components and systems. Key products include customer-specific systems solutions for hazardous areas. R. STAHL's individual packages containing tailored product combinations and a wide range of services such as consulting, project planning, engineering and training courses for customers are designed to fully meet application requirements and customer needs. International certifications, approvals and patents demonstrate the company's expertise and allow for R. STAHL's products to be used throughout the world.

New solutions for safe electrostatic grounding in hazardous areas
When handling combustible liquids or powders, operators are faced with an invisible, often underrated risk: electrostatic discharges, a potential source of sparks that can ignite explosive atmospheres. In order to prevent this, and to enable the safe handling of hazardous substances, R. STAHL offers the new type 8485 and type 7485 grounding monitoring devices. These units ensure the safe elimination of electrostatic charges during the loading and unloading of tank
Energy-efficient LED beacons from R. STAHL
In addition to tried-and-tested models with halogen and xenon flash lamps, R. STAHL's 6162 line of signal beacons now also includes energy-saving LED-based continuous beacons and rotating beacons. With little self-heating, these new models are suitable for use in Ex zones 1, 2, 21, and 22. They fulfill the requirements of temperature class T6 and surface temperature for dust explosions protection T80 °C, and come with an integrated "increased safety"
Completely wireless switching devices for ATEX zones 1, 2, 21 and 22
R. STAHL's new 8074 F series position switches and 8040 F series command devices are truly, completely wireless solutions for radio signal communication. Requiring neither signal lines nor external energy supply connections, the units can be freely installed in zone 1, 2, 21, or 22 hazardous areas. Users therefore need not worry about any wiring when e.g. retrofitting the command devices into difficult-to-access machines or plants. Since there is no
Modular UPS solutions for hazardous areas
R. STAHL provides uninterruptible power supplies for hazardous areas which ensure the safe operation of systems that require 100% availability. The UPS units are assembled from a modular design kit and can be optimally adapted to specific applications. They can be used to safely bridge complete blackouts or malfunctions in the mains power supply, such as frequency fluctuations or overvoltages caused by lightning strikes which can result in plant downtime.
