Organization: ISA
Publication Date: 15 February 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 92
scope:

This standard specifies requirements for the construction, testing and marking for Group II electrical equipment with type of protection, "n" intended for use in explosive gas atmospheres. This standard applies to electrical equipment where the rated voltage does not exceed 15 kV r.m.s. a.c. or d.c.

This standard is applicable to non-sparking electrical equipment and also to electrical equipment 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 capabl e 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 ANSI/ISA60079-0.

This standard supplements and modifies the general requirements of ANSI/ISA-60079-0, except as indicated in Table 1. Where a requirement of this standard conflicts with a requirement of ANSI/ISA-60079-0, the requirement of this standard takes precedence.
