ABB receives IECEx conformity mark licence
ABB is the first motor manufacturer in the world to be granted a license to use the IECEx Conformity Mark which allows ABB to display the IECEx Conformity Mark on products covered by an IECEx Certificate of Conformity, as well as on packaging and promotional materials.
The IECEx Conformity Mark shows that a product has been granted an IECEx Certificate of Conformity. IECEx Certification confirms that the product has the appropriate protection for use in explosive atmospheres and that it has been manufactured under systems subject to ongoing surveillance by Certification Bodies. It is recognised in all the countries participating in the IECEx System, and also means that the product can be supplied to the market without the need for additional tests.
The IECEx Conformity Mark System was introduced in 2008. IECEx Conformity Mark Licenses are issued by approved Certification Bodies in IECEx participating countries.
ABB has been granted IECEx Certification for a wide range of low and high voltage motors, and these can therefore display the IECEx Conformity Mark. The hazardous area protection types provided by these motors include: Flameproof Ex d; Non-sparking Ex nA; Pressurized Ex p; and Dust tight Ex tD.
The IECEx Conformity Mark License will considerably enhance ABB's ability to market its products globally. It complements ABB's existing ATEX approval, which is based on two EU Directives governing the use of equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres.
