What does ATEX stand for and what does it mean?
ATEX stands for ATmosphere EXplosible. ATEX pertains to explosion-proof electrical and mechanical equipment, components and also protective systems. It lies under the European Directive 2014/34/EC and applies to the manufacturing of products which may be used in potentially explosive atmospheres.
