R. STAHL - Hazardex 2016 exhibitor profile
04 December 2015
At R. STAHL, we pride ourselves on over 80 years of experience as a leading manufacturer of safety technology for hazardous areas, with our key customer base consisting of the oil & gas, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, where explosive gas or dust atmospheres are most likely to occur.
Operating internationally, R.STAHL provides bespoke system solutions designed to effectively meet the requirements of individual customers. Our vast explosion-protected product portfolio includes HVAC and pressurised container units, signalling devices, power and distribution systems, electrical installation equipment, fixed and portable lighting equipment, operating and monitoring systems, and CCTV surveillance systems – all designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards.
In a continually changing environment, the company places a strong focus on research and development, with our product range being regularly reviewed and expanded when necessary, resulting in us being able to offer the most comprehensive range of system solutions of all suppliers within our industry. In 2015, R. STAHL introduced “Ex 4.0”, a new distinguishing label for state-of-the-art solutions in explosion protection that ensure maximum versatility of use.
Designed for operation in almost all regions, “Ex 4.0” equipment can be integrated into diverse installations and networks. These components and systems provide superior efficiency, smart features, ensure comfortable handling and optimised maintenance. Much like the “Industry 4.0” and “Industrial Internet of Things” (IIoT) designations, “Ex 4.0” identifies a new generation of high-performance solutions and technologies, highlighting a comprehensive availability of process and diagnostic data from the field.
This capability opens up new possibilities for complex analysis and smart responses, e.g. preventive maintenance. Highly flexible monitoring and operating options including location-independent operation via mobile devices or remote access are ensured.However, “Ex 4.0” covers an even greater scope of features. Applied to a broad variety of different products – luminaires, isolators or remote I/O systems, control boxes, cameras or HMIs –, the label marks the presence of the full range of crucial qualities of future-oriented explosion-protected components.
This means truly global suitability, made possible by the availability of services throughout the world, multiple regional certifications, support for diverse bus systems and communication standards, and an extremely robust mechanical design.
Only products toughened for operation in extreme conditions, including severe cold, high humidity, aggressive saltwater-infused atmospheres, constant vibration and other harsh environmental influences, are awarded the “Ex 4.0” label.
R. STAHL has been able to ensure that the entire portfolio meets these criteria without compromising safety and availability.
