Explosion-proof and ignition-proof electric motors
Simotics XP motors are electric motors for use in an environment where there is a risk that combustible vapours and gases will explode or that flammable dust will be ignited.
Power output from 0.06 to 500 kW.
Versions for the following conditions included:
- 2G – Zone 1 (Gb)
A zone with an occasional occurrence of explosive vapours and gases
- 3G - Zone 2 (Gc)
A zone where explosive vapours and gases are not present in normal operation, but if any such occurrence does happen, it is rare and short-term
- 2D - Zone 21 (Db)
A zone where a cloud of flammable dust (including conductive dust) occasionally occurs
- 3D - Zone 22 (Dc)
A zone where flammable dust is not present in normal operation, but if any such occurrence does happen, it is rare and short-term
Versions for Zone 0 (permanent occurrence of explosive gases) and Zone 20 (permanent occurrence of flammable dust) are not available.
Optionally, we also offer special explosion-proof motor designs (e.g. versions for mining operations).
