The FXT thermostats are a range of compact hazardous area thermostats that provide smart and energy-efficient temperature management for heaters up to 2kW, and can be engineered (upon request) with custom set-points to suit individual requirements.

FXT thermostats are designed to complement the FX, FXE and FXS range of enclosure/cabinet heaters, but can also be utilised for many other standalone applications. They are additionally certified for use in hazardous areas where the atmosphere is classified as a Zone 1 or 2 (IIA, IIB, IIC) Gas Group or a Zone 21 or 22 (IIIA, IIIB, IIIC) Dust Group.

The FXT thermostats are offered in the following variants:

FXT Flameproof Air Sensing Thermostats
The FXT Flameproof Air Sensing thermostats are designed to be paired with the FXE range of heaters - featuring the FXE's radial-fin profile, and are mounted vertically by bracket or rail. Standalone FXT Flameproof Air Sensing thermostats are supplied with cables fitted through certified cable glands for termination.
FXT-DI and FXT-DR Flameproof Thermostats
FXT-DR and FXT-DI flameproof thermostats provide control for larger heaters (up to 2kW), and can be integrated with the FX range of enclosure/cabinet heaters to provide a single heating and control product. They are available in remote (FXT-DR) or inline (FXT-DI) variants, and are capable of operating in ambient temperatures as high as 195°C. The FXT-DR and FXT-DI thermostats are also housed in a hard anodised aluminium enclosure, making them suitable for marine environments.
FXT-M Encapsulated Inline Thermostats
The FXT-M encapsulated inline thermostats have been developed as a space-saving temperature control solution capable of switching small and medium sized heaters to maintain a pre-determined ambient temperature. Comprising a specialised electronic potting compound, stainless steel shroud and polyolefin sheath, the FXT-M is a robust and lightweight thermostat requiring practically zero maintenance. Suitable for operating in ambient temperatures up to +80°C, the FXT-M can be combined with the FX range of enclosure/cabinet heaters to provide a single heating and control product. Alternatively, when supplied with up to 10m of cable, the FXT-M can be installed to control any electrical item inside a cabinet or enclosure.
