Safety-First Approach for New APL7 Switchbox

Actuated Solutions is announcing the launch of the new APL7 switchbox to the UK market

Paul Slaughter, Managing Director, Actuated Solutions Ltd

Designed with safety in mind, the product boasts an ATEX approved aluminium body (for use in hazardous environments) and, unusually for this type of product, an integral single coil solenoid valve.

The APL7 can offer a cost-effective solution when compared to a standard switchbox with a separate solenoid valve as only one cable & one cable gland is required. This can reduce costs significantly in systems where multiple actuated valves are used.

Commenting on the product, ASL’s MD, Paul Slaughter said: “We’re really pleased to be able to offer the market a unique switchbox solution that has the potential to save users money on both installation and product.

Our entry-level APL2 switchbox remains one of the best-selling products on the market and the addition of the higher specification APL7 is further evidence that we have the most comprehensive range of switchboxes in the UK.”

Available in either 110VAC, 220VAC or 24VDC, the APL7 is IP67 rated and includes a beacon visual indicator, quick-set cams and captive cover bolts as standard. Additionally, a Namur drive makes it easy to mount to actuators.

As with all ASL’s products, the APL7 switchbox is supplied with full documentation to assure customers of the highest levels of safety and authentication.
