Explosion protected NORD motors can be supplied according to ATEX Categories 2G and 3G. Various solutions are available on the basis of ignition protection classes "Increased safety" (e), "Pressure resistant encapsulation" (d/de) and "Non-Sparking Design" (n).
NORD has many years' experience in gas and dust explosion protection and has produced explosion protected drive units which comply with the requirements of the European Directive 94/9/EC since 2003. Certification is performed by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and by the DEKRA EXAM GmbH.
Drive units with combined protection for gas and dust atmospheres (Categories 2 or 3) are available on request. However, these cannot be used in environments where there are hybrid mixtures, i.e. where hazardous gases and particles occur simultaneously.
NORD supplies motors from its own development for all important markets world wide. This autonomy offers customers the decisive advantage of short and highly reliable delivery times.
