Motor drive protective housing size L


1011857
2005, modified in 2007

Scope of application

The type test was carried out on a motor drive protective housing size L. This variant is longer than size
S. All other characteristics are identical to size S, e.g. the same profile of the cover gasket, the same
outline of the cover, the same number of screwed joints, the same transmission gear unit and the same
ventilation.
Due to the cover of the motor drive protective housing of size L has a larger faying surface than size S
and resulting into a longer distance between the hinges and locking levers, testing of size L is more
critical then testing of size S.
Therefore this type test report is valid for the motor drive protective housing size L and size S.

Tests performed

5.1 Test for first characteristic numeral 6 (protection against access to hazardous parts)
The test was carried out in a dust chamber with underpressure using talcum powder according to
IEC 60529, sub-clause 13.4, category 1 enclosures:
Underpressure inside the
protective housing:
Extraction rate:
Test duration:

19 mbar
0.25 enclosure volumes / hour
8h

Results:
No talcum dust penetrated into the enclosure of the test specimen. The access to the hazardous parts
with an access probe was not possible.
5.2 Test for second characteristic numeral 6 (protection against water)
This test was carried out with spray water according to IEC 60529, sub-clause 14.2.6:
Water delivery rate:
Internal diameter of the nozzle:
Test duration:

100 l/min
