This standard contains the specific requirements for construction and assessment of intrinsically safe electrical systems, type of protection "i", intended for use, as a whole or in part, in Class I, Zone 0, 1, or 2, or Zone 20, 21, or 22 hazardous (classified) locations as defined by the National Electrical Code® (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70® .

NOTE 1 This standard is intended for use by the designer of the system who may be a manufacturer, a specialist consultant or a member of the end-user's staff.

This standard supplements and modifies the general requirements of ANSI/ISA-60079-0 and ANSI/ISA-61241-0 and the intrinsic safety standard ANSI/ISA-60079-11 and ANSI/ISA-61241-11. Where a requirement of this standard conflicts with a requirement of ANSI/ISA-60079-0, ANSI/ISA-60079-11, ANSI/ISA-61241-0 or ANSI/ISA-61241-11, the requirement of this standard takes precedence.
