Ex switchgear and sensors for -40 °C / -60 °C

Long lifetime under rough conditions

Explosion risk, extreme temperatures and climatic influences: When it comes to position monitoring and safety tasks, steute offers a versatile product portfolio that has been exactly developed to meet the requirements of the process and chemical industry. For outside applications, corrosive environmental conditions or stand-alone applications without power supply: We offer switchgear that perform under the above mentioned conditions with the highest reliability.

Explosion protection

For plants installed in hazardous areas we deliver different devices for position monitoring according to ATEX/IECEx and other national certifications for explosion protection (Russia, Brasil, North America).

Most suitable for extreme applications

High or low temperatures, humidity, vibrations, corrosive gases: Where other switching devices give up, the switches in our business field »Extreme« get going. This is because they have been exclusively designed for such extreme applications. They are applied worldwide, for example in the oil and gas industry, in ship and port technology, as well as in the chemical industry and water treatment technology.

Electromechanical or non-contact

Besides position monitoring with electromechanical position switches our »Extreme« product portfolio includes a variety of different sensor series. The inductive switchgear and magnetic sensors are characterised by a long lifetime under extremely adverse environmental conditions.

Innovation: Wireless position monitoring

Our »Wireless« product portfolio provides an especially elegant position monitoring variant. The wireless position switches are all self-sufficient. Alternatively, wireless sensors with long-life batteries are available.


For temperatures down to -60 °C: Explosion-protected, robust and resistant to cold

Subzero temperatures make high demands on constructional engineers. Our Ex position switches and Ex magnetic sensors have been designed especially for such requirements. These series are used, for example, in off-shore technology or for the position monitoring of valves in gas distribution networks.

Especially designed for extreme temperatures down to -40 °C

In many climate zones, outdoor applications can be subject to temperatures as low as -40 °C. Ex switches, Ex sensors and Ex command devices are available for precisely such situations. The range includes special switching devices such as upper limit switches for cranes.
