Forum Highlights


Have received an allegation concerning IP degree and Ex protection, disagree somewhat, so asking here

1: Degraded IP class is not an interruption to Ex for light, as each part has ignition-proof connections in fittings. The Ex class of the fittings is the switch as well as the ballast and the terminals, the enclosure is only IP protection ( chalmit and Ceag zone 1 equipment)

2:Indicated state Mess result within requirements, no light fittings need to be replaced when they are drained of water if components are not defective or corroded.

Can you provide a sensible answer?
