Abstract

IEC/IEEE 60079-30-1:2015 specifies general and testing requirements for electrical resistance trace heaters for application in explosive atmospheres with the exclusion of those for EPL Ga and Da. This standard covers trace heaters that comprise either factory or field (work-site) assembled units, and which may be series trace heaters, parallel trace heaters, trace heater pads, or trace heater panels that have been assembled and/or terminated in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. This standard also includes requirements for termination assemblies and control methods used with trace heating systems. The explosive atmospheres referred to in this standard are those defined in IEC 60079-10-1 and IEC 60079-10-2. Annexes D and E outline the application of this standard for those users applying the Division method of area classification. This standard supplements and modifies the general requirements of IEC 60079-0, except as indicated in Table 1 (refer to Clause 1 - Scope of the document). Where a requirement of this standard conflicts with a requirement of IEC 60079-0, the requirement of this standard takes precedence. This first edition of IEC/IEEE 60079-30-1 cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 60079-30-1 published in 2007 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant changes, apart from the general revision and updating of the first edition of IEC 60079-30-1 and harmonization with IEEE Std.515, with respect to the previous edition:
- the inclusion of a minimum temperature impact test;
- the addition of a mechanical procedure in the thermal stability test;
- the inclusion of a thermal performance test to replace the thermal safety requirements;
- the inclusion of a second procedure utilizing a plate fixture for sheath temperature determination;
- the inclusion of an ultraviolet and condensation test;
- the revision and significant expansion of documentation requirements;
- the addition of Annexes covering requirements for Divisions 1 and 2;
- the addition of a table covering the applicability of requirements from IEC 60079-0;
- the addition of an Annex covering trace heater product design verification methodology (formerly located in IEC 60079-30-2);
- the further harmonization of this edition with several national standards. Please refer to the Foreword of the document for the significance of changes between IEC 60079-30-1, Edition 1.0 (2007) and IEC/IEEE 60079-30-1, Edition 1.0 (2015). Keywords: electric surface heating equipment used in explosive atmospheres, equipment protection levels Gb, Gc, Db, and Dc
