Explosive atmospheres — Part 6: Equipment protection by oil immersion “o”
|Publication Date:||1 December 2011|
|ICS Code (Electrical apparatus for explosive atmospheres):||29.260.20|
This part of IEC 60079 specifies the requirements for the construction and testing of oilimmersed electrical equipment, oil-immersed parts of electrical equipment and Ex components in the type of protection oil immersion "o", intended for use in explosive gas atmospheres.
NOTE Type of protection oil immersion "o" provides equipment protection level (EPL) Gb. For further information, see Annex A.
This standard supplements and modifies the general requirements of IEC 60079-0. Where a requirement of this standard conflicts with a requirement of IEC 60079-0, the requirement of this standard takes precedence.
This standard is applicable to electrical equipment, parts of electrical equipment, and Ex components which, in the absence of oil immersion, are not ignition capable in normal operation as determined by IEC 60079-15 or IEC 60079-11.
