Explosion protected NORD motors can be supplied according to ATEX Categories 2D and 3D for Zones 21 and 22. These systems utilise the ignition protection type "Protection by enclosure" (tD)
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 develops its own motors and supplies them to all the major markets throughout the world. This autonomy offers customers the decisive advantage of short and highly reliable delivery times.
