Explosive atmospheres - Part 14: Electrical installations design, selection and erection

IEC 60079-14:2013 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. These requirements are in addition to the requirements for installations in non-hazardous areas. This standard applies to all electrical equipment including fixed, portable, transportable and personal, and installations, permanent or temporary. No account is taken in this Standard of the toxic risks that are associated with flammable gases, liquids and dusts in concentrations that are usually very much less than the lower explosive limit. In locations where personnel may be exposed to potentially toxic concentrations of flammable material, appropriate precautions should be taken. Such precautions are outside the scope of this Standard. This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition published in 2007. This edition constitutes a technical revision. Refer to the document's Foreward for a listing of the specific revisions and additional Notes. Key words: requirements for the design, selection, erection and initial inspection of electrical installations in explosive atmospheres.
The contents of the corrigendum of January 2016, the interpretation sheet 1 of February 2017 and March 2020 have been included in this copy.
