APPROVAL OF ELECTRIC AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT USED IN HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENTS

Depending upon the zone of usage, electrical, electronic and mechancial equipment intended for use in potentially hazardous environments must be independently evaluated for their impact on overall safety.

This white paper provides an overview of these two routes and provides answers to frequently asked questions.
