HAZARDOUS AREA EQUIPMENT
Ingress Protection (IP) and Ratings to AS1939 (IEC 529)
The degree of protection of the enclosures for electrical equipment is in accordance with the IEC 60529 and EN 60529 standards:
1. The explosion protection certification of the equipment alone does not necessarily mean it has an adequate degree of protection for specified weather or environment. Hence it is necessary to check the IP rating of the equipment before selection for a particular environment.
2. All Pepperl+Fuchs GOVAN equipment is tested and certified for minimum IP 65 rating.
