The GALITEX protection has been developed according to the regulations of the ATEX directive 2014/34/EU and the norm EN 1755 under the requirements for CATEGORY 2G or 3G.
This protection allows electrical vehicles to operate in hazardous areas classified as Zone 1 or 2, where the GASES IIA, IIB, IIB+H2 or IIB+C2H2 or IIB+H2+C2H2 can be present in the atmosphere. The temperature according specifications.
The GALITEX conversion includes the modification of all systems and equipment to comply with the ATEX directive. The elements which might have ignition sources, like hot surfaces, hot exhaust gases, mechanical and electrical sparks, etc. are protected and/or modified with different type of protections (flameproof protection (Ex d), Increased Safety (Ex e), Intrinsic Safety (Ex i), Encapsulation (Ex m), etc.
The vehicle continues working with the presence of gases in the atmosphere.
