Permanent magnet DC motors are available from 1/4HP to 2HP, and bound-field motors are available from 1/2HP to 3HP for Class I, group D and class II, group F & G. Both are UL and CSA-listed. Applications include conveyor belts, feeding machines, compressors, blowers and mixers that are used at explosion-hazardous locations.
