  1. General information

The ATEX directive states that two diffrerent certificates of conformity are to be issued.

One is the “EC Standart Type” for the homologation of the prototype and the other is for the “Production Quality Assurance”.

The certificates are issued by the Laboratoire Central des Industries Electriques (L.C.I.E)

The production quality Guarantee certificate number is: LCIE 00 ATEX Q8007.

  1. Design features

Mounting arrangements

Standart motors ordered in basic mounting arrangements (universal mounting arrangements) IM B3, IM B5 or IM B14 can also be operated in the following different mounting positions;

IM B3 in IM B6, IM B7, IM B8, IM V5 or IM V6,

IM B5 in IM V1 or IM V3

IM B14 in IM V18 or IM V19

According to the restrictions for explosion-proof electrical machinery it is forbidden that foreing bodies be allowed to fall into the fan cowl. Therefore vertically mounted shaft down motors are fitted with a protective hood over the fan cowl.

  1. Installation and application 

5.1 Thermal and environmental specifications

Operating conditions

Except for some particular notes,the specifications of the motors of chap. 4 correspond to the operating condition S1. Special requirements for other approved conditions of use can be met.

Explosion groups and temperature classes            

Expect for some particular notes , motors are available in group IIB or IIC.

The Standard temperature class with which motors are supplied is T4, unless otherwise specified performans data. Motors class T5 or T6 are also available on request.

Ambient temperature and altitude

The control of surface temperatures within the limits set forth by the temperature class entails the use at an ambient temperature which should be less than or equal to 40 ° C and at an altitude lower than or equal to 1000 m. (according to NF C 51-111). The minimum ambient temperature for using the Standard motors of the choice chart is of -20 °C.

Futher information on operating conditions not complying with these limits is available on request.

Winding overheating

The overheading of motor winding decribed performans data is less than or equal to 80 K.

Thermal limits of the winding insulators

The winding insulators are made with class F materials.


The standart motors of the choice chart can be used up to a relative humidity of H%=90.

  • Terminal box is arranged according to the feet (for IM1 …or IM2…..mounting).  The terminal box axis is normally perpendicular to the laying surface. Optionally, it can be supplied for “right” or “left” mount according to a front view of the motor, main shaft end side (without surcharge). Note: Terminal box position can only be changed at the factory.
  • Cable output position;  In Standard executions, the cable output is on the right. All other options must be requested at the time of the order using the same reference (upper, lower, left, right, front, and rear cable output).
  • “d”cable gland in “EEx-d”  motors, the cable gland aids the flameproof enclosure closing. The user MUST choose a cable with a diameter on the sealing membrane side corresponding to the cable gland specification, as well as use  a device for hooking the cable on the extenal diameter side
  • In standard conditions, motors are supplied with an EEx-d cable gland with cable hook.
