The requirements for artificially ventilated analyzer houses located in a Zone 2 explosive atmosphere (an area normally requiring EPL Gc) containing an internal source of release of gas vapour or liquid are outlined separately in Annex CA.
The requirements of the IEC 60079 series of Standards cover protection with respect to explosion hazard only.
