    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Adopts IEC60079-14:2013 (ED.5.0) to specify requirements for the design, selection, erection and initial inspection of electrical installations in, or associated with, explosive atmospheres.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This part of the IEC 60079 series contains the specific requirements for the design, selection, erection and initial inspection of electrical installations in, or associated with, explosive atmospheres.Where the equipment is required to meet other environmental conditions, for example, protection against ingress of water and resistance to corrosion, additional protection requirements may be necessary.The requirements of this standard apply only to the use of equipment under standard atmospheric conditions as defined in IEC 60079-0. For other conditions, additional precautions may be necessary, and the equipment should be certified for these other conditions. For example, most flammable materials and many materials which are normally regarded as non-flammable might burn vigorously under conditions of oxygen enrichment.NOTE 1 The standard atmospheric conditions defined in IEC 60079-0 relate to the explosion characteristics of the atmosphere and not the operating range of the equipment i.e.- Temperature: –20 °C to 60 °C;- Pressure: 80 kPa (0,8 bar) to 110 kPa (1,1 bar); and- air with normal oxygen content, typically 21 % v/v.These requirements are in addition to the requirements for installations in non-hazardous areas.NOTE 2 For voltages up to 1 000 V a.c. or 1 500 V d.c. requirements of this standard are based on installation requirements in the IEC 60364 series, but other relevant national requirements can apply.This standard applies to all electrical equipment including fixed, portable, transportable and personal, and installations, permanent or temporary.
