This explosionproof cable reel is suitable for use in zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas. The drum body is made of elastomer. This material is resistant to oils and fats, guarantees high mechanical resistance and is responsible for the reliability and long service life of this cable reel.
The cable reel excels points with a compact and robust design and a stable tubular steel cradle mounted on ball bearings, whose crank handle can be rotated and folded away. The cable reel Ex type 573 has been designed for use in industrial applications and meets the requirements of device group II (for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, e.g. when using explosive
mixtures of gases, mists, vapours in the air).
The applied degrees of protection are «Flameproof Enclosure (d)» and «Increased Safety (e)»; gas group IIC is applicable. The temperature class with respect to the ignition of gas is T6.
Compliance with the Essential Health and Safety Requirements was ensured through compliance with EN 60079-0: 2012 / A11: 2013 (General requirements), EN 60079-1: 2014 (Equipment protection by flameproof enclosures “d”), EN 60079-7: 2015 (Equipment protection by increased safety “e”), EN 60079-14: 2014 (Design, selection and construction of electrical installations) and EN 60529: 2016 (Degrees of protection provided by enclosures).
