Proeon Systems collaborate with R.Stahl, the leading manufacturer of Explosion Protection solutions, to provide turnkey, integrated control & automation solutions predominantly to high-risk Energy, Pharmaceutical and Food & Drink sectors across England and Wales.
As a traditional company with more than 80 years' experience in explosion protection, R. STAHL products cover all ignition protection classes for the explosion protection of electrical equipment or systems. International certifications, approvals and patents underline their competence and allow their products and systems to be used worldwide.
Proeon has been offering control and automation solutions to Industrial sectors that have these qualified zones since its inception over 15 years ago, and has used the R.STAHL product range on a number of client projects, both Offshore and in sites that are listed for the Control of Major Accident and Hazard (COMAH) by the HSE.
The skill to design a critical control system is not simply about clever software and fancy user interface graphics on a screen, the Proeon engineering team have to consider functionality, application and locations for the selection of the most appropriate hardware.
R.STAHL’s broad range of products for explosion proof enclosures and historical links to the UK based sectors have led to this detailed collaboration of both hardware and system integration to provide a solid solution for plant wide support for legacy and new projects alike.
The ability to engage with operators of Hazardous area production facilities, scope out and engineer entire control and instrumentation packages, often with high availability and safety levels, manufacture the systems, install and commission before handing over to the client with full support is not often available to buyers. With this collaboration between Proeon and R.STAHL, project teams and procurement managers can engage directly with qualified and well-seasoned specialist engineers to develop a long-term, cost effective insulations for their applications.
From the Proeon headquarters in Hethel, Norfolk the control packages can be developed on the familiar platforms of Siemens, Rockwell, Beckhoff to name but a few, and can be installed and interfaced to R.STAHL’s comprehensive range of Automation, HMi, Remote I/O and networking devices. Where projects require substantial product or large production runs, the relationship with STAHL’s cutting edge manufacturing facilities in Germany and Holland can be brought to bear to provide a cost effective and efficient mechanism to provide a supported solution.
