IEC 60079-10-1:2015 (Area Classification) Withdrawn
IEC 60079-10-1:2015 (Area Classification) is now withdrawn as of 18-Dec-2020. The new standard is IEC 60079-10-1:2020
Explosive atmospheres – Part 10-1: Classification of areas – Explosive gas atmospheres
This third edition of IEC 60079-10-1 cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 2015, and constitutes a technical revision. There are significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition including some changes in scope (for example commercial and industrial applications where only low-pressure fuel gas is used) and changes in the formulas and tables used for determining area classification zones and distances.
