Drawing on an extensive SAP-managed modular product range, the German manufacturer Nord Drivesystems is able to quickly and comfortably configure drives for hazardous areas with absolute safety.

Depending on the zone – whether 1 or 2 for gas, or 21 or 22 for dust atmospheres – optional external fans, backstops, and brakes are fitted as required to suit the application. Vector controlled operation with a frequency inverter is also possible on request. The motors are suitable for operation at ambient temperatures up to +60 °C.

In addition, the drive manufacturer supplies gas and dust-explosion-proof gear units. These comply with EN 13463 and feature ignition protection type Ex c (constructional safety). The motor can often be mounted directly on the gear unit. Nord's current products meet the 2014/34/EU Directive, which came into effect on 20 April, 2016, and the provisions of IECEx.
