Explosion Protection

The explosion protection of your plant is our expertise with reliable solutions and technologies for process automation.

About Us

Automation is our world. Perfect application solutions are our goal.

In 1945, Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs founded a small radio workshop in Mannheim, Germany, based on the principles of inventiveness, entrepreneurial foresight, and self-reliance. The experience they acquired was transformed into new ideas, and they continued to enjoy developing products for customers. The eventual result was the invention of the proximity switch. This innovation represented the starting point of the company’s success story.

Today, Pepperl+Fuchs is known by customers around the world as a pioneer and an innovator in electrical explosion protection and sensor technology. Our main focus is always on your individual requirements: With a passion for automation and groundbreaking technology, we are committed to working in partnership with you now and in the future. We understand the demands of your markets, developing specific solutions, and integrating them into your processes.

Diagnostics and modularity with an installation width of just 6.2 mm: These features are combined in the new M-LB-5000 surge protection system from Pepperl+Fuchs. By offering these features, the single-channel modules support increased plant availability and optimize total operating costs. The patented diagnostics of the M-LB-5000 with its intuitive and easy-to-read traffic-light display minimizes testing costs in accordance with EN 62305-3 and allows condition monitoring. The green light on the protection module indicates that there is full protection and sufficient operating…Read More


The FieldConnex Temperature Multi-Input (TMI) device can record up to eight temperatures in parallel via one address. The TMI is installed in the field, and the measuring probes are connected via short spurs—even in hazardous areas up to Zone 0 or Div. 1. Users of version 8 or above of the Simatic PDM plant asset management system can now configure the TMI using EDDL. With the Simatic PDM, each channel can be set to accept resistance temperature sensors with two, three, and four-conductor technology or temperature elements, in addition to monitoring for wire breaks and short…Read More


The new BlueBeam technology for incremental rotary encoders with optical sensing is a spectacular innovation. Due to the increased efficiency in signal generation, Pepperl+Fuchs offers significantly better sensing capabilities with an improved signal quality. Compared to the classic standard infrared variants, this results in considerably higher system accuracy even at maximum rotational speeds. The new ENI58IL BlueBeam rotary encoders thus set a new market standard, offering performance characteristics that were previously only achievable in high-performance special solutions…Read More

System Solutions For Application-Optimized Explosion Protection

Comprehensive explosion protection tailor-made for complex production plants

In line with technical advancement the production procedures in the processing industries get increasingly perfected. In parallel they get increasingly more complex. This also counts for the explosion protection, if it is needed. Mastering all this requires experience and expert knowledge. Therefore comprehensive system solutions from single sources get very popular, especially as…Read More

F25 – New Open Solution With Compact Design, Fits Perfect To Valve Position Detection On Small Actuators And Manual Valves

The newest generation of dual sensors F25 made by Pepperl+Fuchs, the market leader for open solutions for valve position detection with inductive sensors, monitors the valve position of manual valves and small actuators by non-contact technology. An inductive dual sensor detects the valve position „open/closed“ of a rotary actuator. As there is no existing mechanical contact, the sensor can be…Read More
