Intrinsically Safe Zener Barriers

Test Product

MTL are a pioneer in the development of the "shunt diode" safety barrier. 

This is a passive network device that uses Zener diodes, resistors and fuses to safely divert excess electrical energy to ground and thus prevent sparking in or overheating of equipment in hazardous areas. Their key benefits are low cost and the ability to operate with data in analogue DC or high-speed digital forms.

The MTL 700 series soon established itself as an 'industry standard' with a reputation for quality and reliability. (Download datasheet below)

The ranges have evolved over the years but the latest MTL7700 is unique in providing a broad range of benefits that the instrumentation engineer looks for in a modern barrier.
