Explosive atmospheres – Part 25: Intrinsically safe electrical systems
|Publication Date:||1 February 2010|
|ICS Code (Electrical apparatus for explosive atmospheres):||29.260.20|
This part of IEC 60079 contains the specific requirements for construction and assessment of intrinsically safe electrical systems, type of protection "i", intended for use, as a whole or in part, in locations in which the use of Group I, II or III apparatus is required.
NOTE 1 This standard is intended for use by the designer of the system who may be a manufacturer, a specialist consultant or a member of the end-user's staff.
This standard supplements and modifies the general requirements of IEC 60079-0 and the intrinsic safety standard IEC 60079-11. Where a requirement of this standard conflicts with a requirement of IEC 60079-0 or IEC 60079-11, the requirement of this standard takes precedence.
This standard supplements IEC 60079-11, the requirements of which apply to electrical apparatus used in intrinsically safe electrical systems.
The installation requirements of Group II or Group III systems designed in accordance with this standard are specified in IEC 60079-14.
NOTE 2 Group I installation requirements are presently not provided in IEC 60079-14.
