This is the latest version of the ATEX certified shortwave infrared heater developed by Star Progetti (patent pending) designed to deliver usable warmth in areas where potentially explosive gases may be present (Zones 2-22).

Compared with other types of ATEX compliant heaters, EHSAFE20AL provides a very high heat output coupled with very low purchase price and running costs. Other ATEX-approved heaters work by warming the air whereas this heater delivers shortwave infrared, making it ideal for spot heating cold, damp and draughty workplaces. It is particularly suited to ATEX areas where high ventilation rates are needed to extract fumes and/or hazardous dust particles – areas where attempting to warm people by warming the air would be impractical.

EHSAFE20AL is both dust tight and impervious to strong direct water jets (IP66). The heavy-duty cast aluminium enclosure is designed to convect away surplus heat for maximum reliability. Features a high-emissivity ROBAX glass front and a substantial tilt and swivel mounting bracket. Four M6 threaded suspension points are included to enable the heater to be suspended from chains. Typical heated area is 20m2.

SunSwitch CC1 Energy-saving Comfort Controller 3kW

• 3kW variable controller with soft-start
• Outstanding value!
• Background warmth from under 2p per hour
• Convenient, instant heat adjustment
• Saves energy when heat is turned down
• Standard BS patress box integrates with conduit, trunking, etc.
• Easy to install
• Works with any SunSwitch heater/s up to a maximum overall load of 3kW

Our most popular controller, very competitively priced, now updated and improved! The CC1 Energy-saving Comfort Controller enables the heat output from up to 3kW of SunSwitch infrared heaters to be manually adjusted for complete comfort while also providing a soft-start to maximise element life. Without this form of control, your infrared heaters will always be running at maximum power. With the CC1, infrared heater output can be set to any level required from 0-100%, enabling gentle background warmth to be provided from under 2p per hour. When turned down, the CC1 saves energy which,in the long run, more than offsets the purchase price. And because your heaters will be running cooler, they will last much longer. So you win all round. The CC1 is extremely simple to install with just neutral, live and earth inputs, and connections to the heater/s.

Please note: The controller unit must be mounted in a safe and practical location ‘outside’ the designated ATEX-zone.
