Ex Assemblies and Non-Electrical Equipment
How to design assemblies and non-electrical equipment for ATEX and IECEx Certification.
An assembly is a collection of certified equipment that is combined to make a rig or skid or item of equipment with a new or unique function. Normally the electrical equipment is either certified or simple apparatus and in many cases the main electrical parts will also be certified (Ex h) leaving a relatively simple assessment on uncertified parts or components (such as bearings). Often the ‘assembly’ is now also required to be certified by end users, for example as an ATEX Unit Verification or an IECEx Assembly Certificate. As ATEX issue such certificates, they have created a unique tw0-day training course that specifically addresses the skills required to build competence for non-electrical and assembly risk assessment and certification to ISO 80079-36 and 37 (Ex h) and IEC/ISO(TR) 60079-46 (Assemblies)
As of January 1st 2020 all IECEx Assembly Certification must be to IEC TS 60079-46 which covers both electrical a and non-electrical ignition hazards.
This is a technical course, not an overview. It is aimed at designers or project engineers responsible for design compliance or certification of non-electrical equipment or assemblies.
The Presenter has 20 years’ experience in this field and has a vast wealth of equipment related examples to draw from. He is a current practitioner in non-electrical and assembly certification so you can be assured that the content is relevant and applied with a practical bias. ATEX is a Notified Body for non-electrical certification and an IECEx Certification Body for non-electrical certification to ‘Ex h’ and Assemblies to 60079-46.
