In the European Union, EC Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX) (formerly Directive 94/9/EC) governs the use of drive technology in potentially explosive atmospheres. These include air/gas and air/dust mixtures. SEW Eurodrive explosion-proof gearmotors meet these requirements. You can use them safely across the globe. In compliance with the IEC/IECEx and HazLoc-Na® standards.
