 In power generation applications, the cabling used must meet ATEX and IECEx (Class 1 Div 2) standards. ATEX (ATmosphères EXplosibles) is an EU directive that mandates compliance requirements for the safe operation of mechanical and electrical equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive environments. IEC 60079-14 further delineates these requirements as applicable to ATEX cable products used in these applications.
