Explosion Proof Motors
The ATEX Motors described in this catalogue are manufactured in accordance with IEC 60034-1-5-6-7-8-9-12-14, IEC 60072-1, EN 50347, EN 60079- 0-1-7, EN 61241-0-1.

The electrical motors are subdivided into two groups, depending on the intended operating environment.

The table on the right defines the EQUIPMENT CATEGORY suitable for each CLASSIFIED AREA. Dangerous environments are classified by ZONE, according to the risk generated by explosive GAS (zone 0, 1 and 2) or DUST (zone 20, 21 and 22). The equipment is classified by CATEGORY according to the level of protection the apparatus must have (specified by a number) and the atmosphere in which it will operate (specified by the letter G, D or GD). In the areas and equipment classification lower numbers stand for higher danger and requirement for higher protection. In zone 0/20 the use of electric motors is not allowed.
