Superior Electric XCE series hazardous duty synchronous motors from Danaher Motion satisfy ATEX standards for use in potentially explosive atmospheres as defined by CE directive 94/9/EC. The motor’s flameproof enclosure makes it suitable for use in surface industries exposed to gases, including hydrogen and acetylene. Motors also are available in UL-listed versions for use in Class 1, Group D hazardous locations. The synchronous motors are high pole count motors that naturally turn at slower speeds (72 rpm with 60-Hz power, or 60 rpm with 50-Hz power). They only need a resistor-capacitor network to operate from single-phase AC utility power.
