Explosion-proof geared motors

The operation of systems in areas with explosive air-gas or air-dust mixtures requires drive units equipped with special protection features. This requirement makes explosion-proof motors and gear units subject to increased safety features. The new regulation 94/9/EG (ATEX100a) contains all requirements for units operated in areas with increased danger of explosion and for the first time includes non-electrical devices in the explosion protection section. SEW-Eurodrive now offers a range of explosion-proof motors and gear units that meet the requirements of the ATEX100a regulation. All drives are equipped with the standard enclosure of IP54. The gray cast terminal box has a threading with metric cable screw fitting closing parts meeting ATEX100a. The gaskets are of improved quality to increase heat resistance, with an external protective conductor connection installed. Reinforced fan guards and brake sealing rings additionally retained with clamping strips are also standard for SEW. Vertical drives are equipped with a protective cover and there is a speed or stalling monitoring feature for mechanical variable speed gear units.
