Adalet announces a new addition to an already extensive line of explosionproof instrument housings. The new XIHNS next generation stainless steel, explosionproof instrument housing features a new, updated design and various features, options, and approvals. The 316 investment cast, stainless steel housing is ideal for rugged or explosionproof applications where severe corrosion exists. The modern, contour design provides an updated look for OEM applications housing sensitive instrumentation such as measurement devices, transmitters, multi-level circuit boards, or wide-angle readouts and displays.

With a large bored throat opening of 4-1/16″, the XIHNS enclosure offers the largest opening and internal volume in the industry which can accommodate a wide variety of OEM instruments and devices. Two solid cover and two glass cover options are available to accommodate various depth instruments. The glass cover offers a viewing window of 3-5/16″ and features a low profile / tab free retaining ring for maximum instrument clearance.

The next generation instrument housing includes many features not available on other models. A removable, internal mounting pan allows easy installation of devices. The XIHNS provides an option of up to six conduit entries, which is the most in the industry. Three ¾” npt conduit entries are standard. Two cast-on mounting tabs, centered, with an optional third tab for heavy vibration applications. A generous front boss allows for optional mounting bracket holes or a larger conduit entry (up to 1″ NPT). The XIHNS carries global approvals which include UL, cUL, ATEX, and IECEx certifications.
