active, Most Current
Organization: CENELEC
Publication Date: 1 December 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 32
ICS Code (Electrical apparatus for explosive atmospheres): 29.260.20
scope:

This part of IEC 60079 specifies the requirements for the design, construction, testing and marking of Ex Equipment and Ex Components with type of protection liquid immersion "o" intended for use in explosive gas atmospheres.

Ex Equipment and Ex Components of type of protection liquid immersion "o" are either:

• Level of Protection "ob" (EPL "Mb" or "Gb")

• Level of Protection "oc" (EPL "Gc")

For Level of Protection "ob", this standard applies where the rated voltage does not exceed 11 kV r.m.s. a.c. or d.c.

For Level of Protection "oc", this standard applies where the rated voltage does not exceed 15 kV r.m.s. a.c. or d.c.

NOTE Requirements for higher voltages are under consideration.

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.
