New standards have been published for non-electrical equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. The requirements in the standards address the mechanical ignition hazards associated with such equipment and provide guidance on mitigation. However, the approach to evaluating and certifying non-electrical equipment differs from the traditional method used for electrical equipment. Additionally, terms such as “expected malfunction” and “ignition hazard assessment report” plus new markings and protection methods can be confusing. UL drives global research and standards to continually advance and meet continually changing product safety, performance and interoperability needs. So, join our experts for an informational webinar on non-electrical requirements and the significant additions to the ever-evolving requirements for hazardous locations equipment.
