CSA - CAN/CSA-C22.2 NO. 60079-15:12

Electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres — Part 15: Construction, test and marking of type of protection "n" electrical apparatus

inactive
Organization: CSA
Publication Date: 1 January 2012
Status: inactive
Page Count: 190
ICS Code (Electrical apparatus for explosive atmospheres): 29.260.20
scope:

This part of IEC 60079 specifies requirements for the construction, testing and marking for Group II electrical apparatus with type of protection, "n" intended for use in explosive gas atmospheres.

This part is applicable to non-sparking electrical apparatus and also to electrical apparatus with parts or circuits producing arcs or sparks or having hot surfaces which, if not protected in one of the ways specified in this standard, could be capable of igniting a surrounding explosive gas atmosphere. This standard describes several different methods by which this can be achieved which may be combined with other methods described in IEC 60079-0.

This part supplements the general requirements in IEC 60079-0.

NOTE 1 A non-incendive component is limited in use to the particular circuit for which it has been shown to be non-ignition capable and, therefore, cannot be separately assessed as complying with this standard.

NOTE 2 Compliance with this standard does not imply any removal of, or lowering of the requirements of any other standard with which the electrical apparatus complies.

NOTE 3 This part supplements, and may enhance, the requirements for apparatus for normal industrial applications. Where compliance with other IEC standards is indicated, such as IEC 60034 for motors and IEC 60598-2 for luminaires, proving compliance to those standards is normally the responsibility of the manufacturer.
