Clamped EBMXC Series Explosionproof Combination Motor Starters

The world's only clamped enclosure for hazardous areas.

One of the biggest challenges with enclosures located in hazardous areas is accessibility.  To access internal components for preventative maintenance or troubleshooting, up to 70 bolts have to be loosened and then retightened, leading to extended periods of downtime and safety risks due to improperly torqued or missing bolts.

The clamped EBMX enclosure utilizes patented clamping technology to reduce downtime, increase safety and lower maintenance costs.
