    For manufacturers of ignition protected electrical equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres in UK Additional requirements for intrinsically safe circuits and apparatus 12 Portable requiring certain electrical equipment to be approved for . Electrical apparatus for potentially explosive atmospheres - Intrinsic safety ‘i’ Executive summary. Requirements for the construction and testing of intrinsically safe electrical apparatus, intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

    In order to make electrical equipment safe for use in a potentially explosive atmosphere, some form of protection must be afforded. Irrespective of whether you are certifying equipment for the ATEX Directive (for use in Europe) or to international requirements, the fundamental methodologies remain the same. One of the most commonly used concepts for low power equipment (such as instrumentation. Electrical equipment intended for use in a chemical factory or refinery either is designed to contain any explosion within the device or describing requirements for Fieldbus Intrinsically Safe Concept (FISCO) (zone 0, 1 or 2 A Practitioner's Handbook for potentially explosive atmospheres, The Engineering Equipment and Materials.

BS - Intrinsically safe electrical apparatus and circuits for use in explosive atmospheres. Intrinsic safety (IS) is a protection technique for safe operation of electrical equipment in hazardous areas by limiting the energy, electrical and thermal, available for ignition.

In signal and control circuits that can operate with low currents and voltages, the intrinsic safety approach simplifies circuits and reduces installation cost over other protection methods.

Intrinsically-Safe Transmitter Option Code 2n Document Number: Rev. C: September, WARNING. The operator of this instrument is advised that if the equipment is used in a manner not specified in this manual, the protection pro- vided by the equipment may be impaired.

Provides 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 explosive atmospheres in Group II locations.

Intrinsically safe insulation and continuity testers are available, but those which I have seen have been certified to the now obsolete BS - Intrinsically safe electrical apparatus and circuits for use in explosive atmospheres. Instruments certified to this standard are intrinsically safe only as a single piece of apparatus without consideration as to the circuits in which they may be.

NOTE 2 Diffewnt parts of the same intrinsically safe electrical system may have different subdivisions (A, B, C). The apparatus used may have different surface temperature classes and different ambient temperature ratings.

TYPE OF PROTECTION FOR NON-ELECTRICAL APPARATUS. for intrinsically safe electrical equipment and systems, type of protection i, intended for use in explosive atmospheres. This standard supplements ASPart 1, except for the following requirements which do not apply: (a) For intrinsically safe equipment and associated equipment: Clause (b) Access to uninsulated live parts.

Intrinsically Safe Systems. Intrinsically safe systems are covered by NEC Where the circuits installed are intrinsically safe, as verified by the control drawings, the Code permits the use of any wiring method suitable for use in unclassified locations, including those permitted in Chapters 7.

Non incendive vs intrinsically safe. To be ATEX or any other Intrinsically Safe certification the product cannot create an ignition source and is rigorously tested to a specific fault condition.

A non incendive product is not tested to fault conditions. Electrical Apparatus for Explosive Atmospheres Sectional Committee and approval of the Electrotechnical Division Council.

This standard supersedes IS ‘Electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres — Intrinsic safety “i” — Specification (second revision)’.

IS would continue for certification. Traditionally, protection from explosion in hazardous environments has been accomplished by either using EXPLOSION PROOF apparatus which can contain an explosion inside an enclosure, or PRESSURIZATION or purging which isolates the explosive gas from the electrical equipment.

Intrinsically safe apparatus cannot replace these methods in all applications, but where possible can provide significant cost savings. This part of IEC specifies the construction and testing of intrinsically safe apparatus intended for use in an explosive atmosphere and for associated apparatus, which is intended for connection to intrinsically safe circuits which enter such atmospheres.

1DV.1 Modification of Clause 1, first paragraph as follows. areas, a single electrical spark can ignite a disastrous explosion. Proper selection, installation, and maintenance of electrical devices will prevent such occurrences; but many specifiers experience confusion when designing for hazardous atmospheres.

For example, what is the difference between explosionproof, intrinsically safe. Publisher Summary. The use of electrical equipment in explosive atmospheres was originally in the realm of the mining industry and, although the technology was used in surface industry, significant developments in this latter area are more contemporary being to a large extent post war.
