New Catalogue Helps Users Specify Motors for Hazardous Areas

Jul 25 2008

Motors for Hazardous Areas is ABB`s 255-page, full-colour catalogue detailing motors designed to meet the toughest safety standards in many of the world`s most strictly regulated environments, where flammable gas, vapour or dust may be present.
As well as details of the ABB (UK) product range, the catalogue also explains the applicable regulatory requirements, helping users make the right equipment choices. Both low and high voltage motors are available. Low voltage versions come in sizes from 71 to 450 to cover 0.25 to 1000kW. High voltage motor sizes range from 315 to 710 for 110 to 4500kW.
The catalogue is split into separate sections for easy reference, with details of low voltage flameproof motors (Ex d/Ex de), low voltage increased safety motors (Ex e), low voltage non-sparking motors (Ex nA), low voltage dust ignition proof motors (DIP/Ex tD) and high voltage non-sparking (Ex nA) and dust ignition proof motors (DIP/Ex tD).
ABB’s motors conform to the stringent standards set by the European
Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) and are approved by testing laboratories (ExNB: Notified Body). Global certificates are also provided, including IEC, IECEx Scheme, ATEX, CSA, and CSA/US certificates, while national certificates are generally available to meet specific local requirements.
