Explosion Protection Equipment Gets a New Website

Posted by Aaron Severa on Thu, Feb 27, 2014

We recently launched our latest microsite,, which focuses on explosion protection solutions.

To help you familiarize yourself with this website, its products, and all of its features, we have produced a short video. Please take a moment to tour, and see our solutions to ensure safe processes to protect people and equipment in hazardous locations.


Hello, this is Aaron Severa, Product Manager for Explosion Protection here at Pepperl+Fuchs. Today I'm here to introduce you to our new website that's recently been launched:

As you can see, I've already navigated to the home page for, and it looks something like this. On the page, the first thing you may notice is the middle of the page has an outline of all the different products that fall under our Explosion Protection Equipment portfolio. Such as:

  • Terminal junction boxes
  • Control units
  • Enclosures
  • Disconnectors and motor starters
  • Other Ex e and Ex d products

The first thing I'll show you how to do is how to navigate to a specific product. With that, we'll start with the terminal junction boxes. You can click on this tab, and it will pop up an additional screen where you can get a brief overview of all the products that fall into that product portfolio, such as a GL glass-reinforced polyester enclosure, or possibly an FXLS stainless steel enclosure with a return flange. If you click on any one of these links, it will take you to a more detailed page for that specific product.

Now that we've navigated to the FXLS stainless steel enclosure product page, you can see  general information for that specific product, bullet points on all the product information, what certifications it holds, what material it is made out of, its temperature ratings and ingress protection ratings, and also what sizes the enclosures can be made in. Also on this page is all the information such as the data sheet, the installation manual, and all valid certifications for this specific product. If you look even further down the page, there will be a 'Briefly introduced...' section. This will have four or five different images of similar products in the portfolio. It will give you some brief information on what those products do and what they offer. If you click on them, they will give you more information and take you to that product specific page.

If we go back to the top of the page now, you will notice there is a 'Home' link, a 'Solution Design' link, and an 'About Us' link. Click on the 'Solution Design' link and it takes you to a screen that explains what we can do with these specific enclosures. When we navigate to the Solutions Design page, What we'll see is just a brief overview of what we at Pepperl+Fuchs can do to customize an industrial enclosure. Some of the steps that are involved in custom enclosure builds are:

  • Evaluating the customer's requirements
  • Proposal of a technical solution 
  • Working with the customer to finalize the proposal

Then, our design team takes hold of it and does the final engineering and all the design specification. Finally, once that is approved, we go into manufacturing a solution, do a final acceptance test, and then also provide all the comprehensive documentation and certification that goes along with these custom industrial enclosures. The last thing we can do on this page is click the 'Contact Us Now' link, which will open up a new pop up. On this pop up, you can find your personal contact at Pepperl+Fuchs. Depending on what country you are in, it will give you your own local contact. Let's scroll down to the United States, as an example. It will pull up your personal contact, which is me, Aaron Severa, and it will have my email address, as well as my phone number and address if you wish to get in touch with me. Also on this screen, you can put in your information, your first and last name, email address, company, and then a little bit of the information you have about a specific application that you have. This will email directly to me, and then I can contact you and we can discuss your application.

That concludes our brief to the new Pepperl+Fuchs website, If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us!
