Are hazardous area and marine motors included in EU MEPS?

No. The EU MEPS scheme does not cover all the types of motor covered by IEC 60034-30. Some motors (such as hazardous area and brake motors) are included in IEC 60034-30 but excluded from EU MEPS. Marine motors are excluded from EU MEPS because they are designed for ambient temperatures higher than 40°C, as required by the classification societies.

As a global player, ABB will follow the requirements of IEC 60034-30. Even though it is not required under EU MEPS, ABB will also provide IE markings for standard hazardous area, marine and brake motors.
