MEDC PB Call Point | ATEX IECEx Explosion Proof & Hazardous Area Call Points

MEDC pb

MEDC PB are ATEX call points designed for use in the most arduous environmental conditions. The hazardous area call points, manufactured by MEDC, are manually operated fire alarms that are both simple to install and maintain in explosive atmospheres in onshore or offshore locations in accordance with the ATEX & IECEx certification and explosion protection levels.

The GRP enclosure of the hazardous area call point is suitable for use onshore or offshore where light weight combined with a high level of corrosion resistance is required. The unit is now supplied with a lift flap that latches firmly in place.

Hazardous Area Guide

♦ Definition : Potentially explosive atmospheres exist where there is a risk of explosion due to mixtures of gas/air, vapour/air, dust/air or other flammable combinations. Where electrical equipment has to be used in these areas, it must be so designed and constructed such that it does not create sources of ignition capable of igniting these mixtures.
♦ Area Classification : Process plants are divided into Zones (European and IEC method) or Divisions (North American method) according to the likelihood of a potentially explosive atmosphere being present. Note: North American legislation now allows Zones to be used to classify areas, where this practice is used it follows the IEC Zone method.

➡ For further information about see Hazardous Area Zones and T-Class Temperature Ratings.

European ATEX & IEC ClassificationDefinition of Zone or DivisionNorth American Classification
Zone 0 (gases)A hazardous area in which an explosive mixture is continuously present or present for long periodsClass I Division I (gases)
Zone 20 (dusts)Class II Division 1 (dusts)
Zone 1 (gases)A hazardous area in which an explosive mixture is likely to occur in normal operationClass I Division 1 (gases)
Zone 21 (dusts)Class II Division 1 (dusts)
Zone 2 (gases)A hazardous area in which an explosive mixture is not likely to occur in normal operation and if it occurs it will exist only for a short timeClass I Division 2 (gases)
Class II Division 2 (dusts)
Zone 22 (dusts)Class III Division 1 (fibres)
Class III Division 2 (fibres)
