GAMBICA Guide to the Application of the ATEX Directives to Power Drive Systems - 3rd Edition
14 August 2018
GAMBICA publishes the 3rd Edition of the Technical Guide to Variable Speed Drives: Application of the ATEX Directives to Power Drive Systems
This Guide was produced to give guidance when connecting a variable speed drive (VSD) to a motor, where the motor is within a potentially explosive atmosphere and the VSD is outside the potentially explosive atmosphere. This guide focusses on the requirements of the European Union ATEX directives, but the technical requirements are similar in other legislations, and most of the European standards referred to (EN xxxxx) have international equivalents (IEC xxxxx).
Note: This guide does not cover any instance where the VSD is fitted within the potentially explosive atmosphere.
