This standard establishes minimum requirements for electrical work and electrical equipment operating, or intended to operate, at a mine.

Note: Users should be aware that federal, provincial, and territorial legislation can impose additional requirements.

1.2 Application

This standard is supplementary to, or amendatory of, the requirements of the CE Code, Part I, as adopted by the regulatory authority having jurisdiction.

Note:

Adherence to the CE Code, Part I, normally addresses the minimum electrical safety requirements for mining-related fixed buildings, structures, and premises located on the surface, as these are no different from other industrial facilities. Such facilities could include processing plants, camps, offices, and drys. However, specific applications can exist within or on such buildings, structures, or premises that warrant the application of this Standard, such as supplies to mobile and movable equipment operated at voltages exceeding 150V to ground. Examples of mine equipment operating at voltages exceeding 150 V to ground are:

a) mobile equipment fed by portable power cables;

b) movable equipment fed by portable power cables or mine power feeders where the ground-fault voltage, ground potential rise (GPR) relative to the surrounding earth or structures, and the transfer of these voltages is required to be limited to tolerable touch voltages values; and

c) quick-connect couplers

1.3 Application to non-mining structures

This Standard does not apply to tunnels, aqueducts, conduits, or excavations for civil construction purposes. However, where mines incorporate such structures, this Standard applies.

 

1.4 Structure of this Standard

Clauses 1 to 4 apply to all mines. The remaining clauses apply as follows:

Clause 5 applies to surface mines and quarries and to the surface portion of underground mines;

Clause 6 applies to underground mines; and

Clause 7 applies to underground coal mines.

1.5 Terminology

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

Clause 1 of IEC 60601-1:2005+AMD1:2012+AMD2:2020 applies, except as follows:

NOTE The general standard is IEC 60601-1:2005+AMD1:2012+AMD2:2020.

201.1.1 * Scope

Replacement:

This document is applicable to the basic safety and essential performance of an anaesthetic workstation for administering inhalational anaesthesia whilst continuously attended by a professional operator. 

This document specifies particular requirements for a complete anaesthetic workstation and the following anaesthetic workstation components which, although considered as individual devices in their own right, may be utilized, in conjunction with other relevant anaesthetic workstation components, to form an anaesthetic workstation to a given specification:

- anaesthetic gas delivery system;
- anaesthetic breathing system;
- anaesthetic gas scavenging system (AGSS);
- anaesthetic vapour delivery system;
- anaesthetic ventilator;
- monitoring equipment;
- alarm system;
- protection device.

NOTE 1 Monitoring equipment, alarm systems and protection devices are summarized in Table AA.1.

An anaesthetic workstation supplied complete and its individual components are considered as ME equipment or ME systems with regard to the general standard.

NOTE 2 The applicability of this document is indicated in Table AA.2.

This document is also applicable to those accessories intended by their manufacturer to be connected to an anaesthetic workstation where the characteristics of those accessories can affect the basic safety and essential performance of the anaesthetic workstation.

If a clause or subclause is specifically intended to be applicable to anaesthetic workstation components or its accessories only, the title and content of that clause or subclause will say so. If that is not the case, the clause or subclause applies both to an anaesthetic workstation and its individual components including accessories, as relevant.

Hazards inherent in the intended physiological function of an anaesthetic workstation and its individual components including accessories within the scope of this document are not covered by specific requirements in this document except in IEC 60601-1:2005+AMD1:2012+AMD2:2020, 7.2.13 and 8.4.1.

NOTE 3 See also IEC 60601-1:2005+AMD1:2012+AMD2:2020, 4.2.

This document is not applicable to any anaesthetic workstation intended for use with flammable anaesthetic agents, as determined by Annex BB.

This part of IEC 60079 gives the specific methodology for the assessment and testing, and

requirements for marking of electrical equipment, parts of electrical equipment and Ex

components with special protection “s”.

This part of IEC 60079 applies to

• electrical equipment employing a method of protection not covered by any existing standard in the IEC 60079 series,
• electrical equipment employing one or more recognized types of protection where the design and construction is not fully compliant with the standard for the type of protection,
• electrical equipment where the intended use is outside the parameters of the scope of the standard for the type of protection.

This part of IEC 60079 is not intended for equipment that is covered by the scope of other IEC 60079 equipment standards unless 

• it is clearly demonstrated that compliance with the type of protection is not feasible, and
• additional measures are applied to establish an equivalent equipment protection level.

This part of IEC 60079 for special protection “s” is applicable to Group I, Group II and Group III and for equipment protection levels Ma, Mb, Ga, Gb, Gc, Da, Db and Dc, as defined in IEC 60079-0.

Certain specific guidance for assessment and testing are provided in the annexes to this standard.

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 shall take precedence.

NOTE 1 This standard may be used where equipment requires a higher EPL than the underlying protection techniques provide. Additional control measures or additional design and test requirements would be applied.

NOTE 2 Parts of equipment that can be designed and tested to standardized techniques should be so designed. Only those parts where conformance with essential safety requirements is achieved through alternative controls should be considered for special protection “s”. Equipment similar in attributes and performance to other equipment within a particular type of protection should be reviewed first to that method of protection prior to being considered for the use of Ex ”s”’. Some parts of IEC 60079 allow a degree of variance from the equipment requirements and where determined to be close enough by independent verifiers, then it is preferable to prescribe to the original type of protection.
