ATEX motors, EEx motors
|The European Commission Directive 94/9/EC, better known as ATEX 95 directive defines the minimum requirements for the safety of products and safety systems to be installed and used in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Group II *) also distinguishes between different types of environments which, caused by either gas or dust, are potentially explosive, – and the group is divided into the following categories:
Within the category of GAS, it must be assessed which type of explosion protection motor must be equipped with (eg.: EExe, EEXn, EExd etc.) and in addition the relevant gas group (propane = IIA, IIC = hydrogen, etc) and temperature class (eg.: T3, T4, etc.) must be determined.

*): New subdivision (group II for gas and group III for dust) is imminent and will be implemented continuously.
