    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the general requirements for construction, testing and marking of electrical apparatus, Ex cable glands and Ex components, intended for use in explosive gas atmospheres. This Standard does not specify requirements for safety, other than those directly related to the explosion risk. This Standard is identical with and has been reproduced from IEC 60079-0:2004.
