scope:

This standard contains specific requirements for the construction, testing and marking of electrical equipment, parts of electrical equipment and Ex components in the type of protection powder filling "q", intended for use in explosive gas atmospheres.

NOTE 1 Electrical equipment and Ex components protected by powder filling "q" may contain electronic circuits, transformers, protection fuses, relays, intrinsically safe electrical apparatus, associated electrical apparatus, switches, etc.

NOTE 2 Type of protection powder filling "q" provides equipment protection level (EPL) Gb. For further information, see Annex A.

This standard supplements and modifies the general requirements of ANSI/ISA-60079-0. Where a requirement of this standard conflicts with a requirement of ANSI/ISA- 60079-0, the requirement of this standard will take precedence.
