The XP100 explosionproof motor are UL and CSA listed for gas and dust ignitionproof environments, and are suitable for Division 1, Class I, Groups C & D, Class II, Groups F & G, hazardous-area classifications.

The motor features a cast-iron frame and bearing housings, epoxy enamel paint, polycarbonate cooling fan, nonhygroscopic insulation, corrosionresistant hardware, and stainlesssteel nameplate.

An anticorona system helps the motor withstand voltage spikes caused by fast switching IGBTs from adjustable-speed drives. Each die cast aluminum rotor assembly is balanced and includes a highstrength carbon steel shaft for maximum performance.
