Turck has introduced a family of Minifast connectivity solutions that are Class II, Division 2 certified for use with combustible dust.

Combustible dust particles can be generated in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, processing or storage and handling. Dust particles can increase the risk of an explosion when a potential source of ignition is also present. Many common materials can become combustible when in powder form such as metal, plastic, grain, sugar, chemicals and many others.
