Using ATEX motors on inverter supplies

01 August, 1999

In the July/August 2006 issue of Drives & Controls magazine, we published an article, written by Steve Ruddell, general manager of ABB`s drives and motors business in the UK, on the use of variable-speed drives with ATEX-approved motors in potentially hazardous applications.

The article has provoked some strong reactions. Two experts have written articles in response to the original ABB piece. The first of these of these articles, written by Ian Evans of Harmonic Solutions Co UK, can be found here and the second, by Dr Donald Jackson, technical director of Brook Crompton, can be found here.
