SIMOTICS XP

Explosion-proof and ignition-proof electric motors

Simotics XP motors are electric motors for use in an environment where there is a risk that combustible vapours and gases will explode or that flammable dust will be ignited.
Power output from 0.06 to 500 kW.

Versions for the following conditions included:

  • 2G – Zone 1 (Gb)
    A zone with an occasional occurrence of explosive vapours and gases
  • 3G - Zone 2 (Gc)
    A zone where explosive vapours and gases are not present in normal operation, but if any such occurrence does happen, it is rare and short-term
  • 2D - Zone 21 (Db)
    A zone where a cloud of flammable dust (including conductive dust) occasionally occurs
  • 3D - Zone 22 (Dc)
    A zone where flammable dust is not present in normal operation, but if any such occurrence does happen, it is rare and short-term

Versions for Zone 0 (permanent occurrence of explosive gases) and Zone 20 (permanent occurrence of flammable dust) are not available.

Optionally, we also offer special explosion-proof motor designs (e.g. versions for mining operations).

General features:

  • if the power is supplied from an inverter, a special motor configuration and certified winding thermal protection are required.
  • limited configuration options
    • limited variability of modular superstructures compared to standard motors
    • limited opportunity for increased ambient temperatures
  • ATEX certification for each motor
  • standardised dimensions to ensure compatibility with other brands’ products
