This part of IEC 60079 specifies requirements for construction, testing and marking for Ex Equipment that contains parts of the equipment with different Equipment Protection Levels (EPLs) and a separation element. This equipment is mounted across a boundary where different EPLs are required, for example between different gas hazardous areas, dust hazardous areas or gas hazardous areas adjacent to dust hazardous areas.

EXAMPLE: Equipment installed in the wall of storage tanks located in Zone 1 and containing Zone 0 inside. 

Separation elements are considered for both electrical and non-electrical equipment. If mechanical energy can be transformed into a potential ignition source, additionally an ignition hazard assessment in accordance with ISO 80079-36 is performed and appropriate measures are undertaken. Suitable measures can be selected from ISO 80079-37 or IEC TS 60079-42.

This document also specifies requirements for the combination of two Types of Protection, each with EPL Gb, to achieve EPL Ga. Examples are included in 4.2.

This document supplements and modifies the general requirements of IEC 60079-0. Where a requirement of this document conflicts with a requirement of IEC 60079-0, the requirement of this document takes precedence.

1 Scope

Clause 1 of IEC 61058-1:2016 is applicable except as follows:

Addition:

This document applies to cord switches (mechanical or electronic) for appliances actuated by hand, by foot or by other human activity, to operate or control electrical appliances and other equipment for household or similar purposes with a rated voltage not exceeding 250 V and a rated current not exceeding 16 A.

Throughout this document, the word "appliance" means "appliance or equipment".

These switches are intended to be operated by a person, via an actuating member or by actuating a sensing unit. The actuating member or sensing unit can be integral or arranged separately from the switch. The transmission of a signal between the actuating member or sensing unit and the switch can be made either physically or electrically (for example, electrical, optical, acoustic or thermal).

Switches which incorporate additional control functions governed by the switch function are within the scope of this document.

This document also covers the indirect actuation of the switch when the operation of the actuating member or sensing unit is provided by a remote control or a part of an appliance such as a door.

NOTE 1 Electronic switches can be combined with mechanical switches giving full disconnection or micro-disconnection.

NOTE 2 Electronic switches without a mechanical switch in the supply circuit provide only electronic disconnection. Therefore, the circuit on the load side is always considered to be live.

NOTE 3 For switches used in tropical climates, additional requirements can apply.

NOTE 4 Attention is drawn to the fact that the standards for appliances can contain additional or alternative requirements for switches.
