Free Guide: Navigating Changes in Intrinsic Safety Standard IEC 60079-11 Edition 7

Safety in Hazardous Locations

Hazardous locations (HazLoc) are environments where risks are significantly elevated, found in places like chemical plants, refineries, factories, and more. These areas are prone to potential hazards, such as flammable gases, vapors, liquids, combustible dusts, or ignitable fibers, substantially increasing the likelihood of fires or explosions. Due to these risks, it is critical for manufacturers to prioritize and demonstrate product compliance with relevant standards to confirm the safety and reliability of their equipment.

The Importance of IEC 60079-11 Edition 7

A key safety standard in this area is IEC 60079-11 Edition 7, which establishes a range of requirements for the design, construction, testing, and marking of electrical equipment intended for HazLoc environments. Demonstrating compliance with this standard is vital for manufacturers to attest the safety and reliability of their HazLoc equipment. Consequently, it is imperative for manufacturers to remain informed about the latest updates to the standard.
