Motors and drives in potentially explosive atmospheres - What you need to know
A potentially explosive atmosphere is defined as a location in which gases, vapors, mist or dust mixed with air can form a flammable mixture. Electrical equipment installed in such locations must be designed and tested in such way that it does not cause arcing or high temperatures that could provide a source of ignition for such a mix. The purpose of this brochure is to provide the reader with basic information on the regulations, standards, definitions and equipment requirements for motors and drives in potentially explosive areas.
