IP69k is a rating of German standard DIN 40050-9 extending the IEC 60529 that provides the maximum protection degree against close range high pressure (100 bar), high temperature (80°C) spray downs, applied at a variety of angles, as well as against dust penetration. In many industries, where dust and dirt can be an issue or where hygiene and cleanliness are essential, like in food and beverage industry, this certification is indispensable for the equipment that must be sanitized, withstanding rigorous high pressure and high temperature wash-down procedures.
Products marked cCSAus are certified to be manufactured in accordance with the requirements of Canadian CSA and American UL and approved to be used in Canada and USA. This certification means that the products were tested and resulted compliant regarding potential flammability, electrical shock and mechanical hazard.
NTT™ stands for a special treatment which results in modified external properties of the mechanical parts with complex geometry. It is a highly technological process which benefits from the expertise in many industrial and scientific fields. An excellent resistance to corrosion and long durability are the main features of NNT™ finishing, which makes NNT™ treated products a first choice and unique solution for variety of applications in many industries.
By applying CE mark a manufacture declares the conformity of the product to the safety requirements settled in European regulations. It means that the product is compliant to all the directives of European Community regarding its usage: from design and manufacturing to release to the market, functioning and recycling.
IE mark indicates the efficiency class for electrical motor (Standard IEC 60034-30:2008 for three-phase low tension motors) "IE" code stands for "International Efficiency": IE1 = Standard Efficiency; IE2 = High Efficiency; IE3 = Premium Efficiency. Starting from the 1st January 2017 IE3 efficiency is mandatory for the motors between 0,75 and 375 kW and IE2 in case the motor powered by inverter.
ATEX abbreviation, which stands for French "Atmosphere Explosible", identifies the Directive 2014/34/UE that replaced the previous 94/9/CE. The field of application of ATEX Directive extends to all equipment exploited in a potentially explosive environment on the territory of European Union. ATEX Directive appoints the notified European bodies (CESI, TÜV, KEMA, INERIS, Nemko, etc.) qualified for examination and verification of technical documentation, special testing and filing of relative documentation; once this procedure terminated successfully a manufacture is authorized to declare the conformity of its products to ATEX and use the ATEX mark on them.
NSF International is an accredited, independent third-party certification organization that tests and certifies products to verify they meet these public health and safety standards. The NSF certification mark on a product means that the product complies with all standard requirements referring to the hygienic and health. NSF conducts periodic unannounced inspections and product testing to verify that the product continues to comply with the standard.
