This certificate is issued as verification that a sample(s), representative of production, was assessed and tested and found to comply with the IEC Standard list below and that the manufacturer's quality system, relating to the Ex products covered by this certificate, was assessed and found to comply with the IECEx Quality system requirements. This certificate is granted subject to the conditions as set out in IECEx Scheme Rules, IECEx 02 and Operational Documents as amended.
This Unit verification certificate is issued as verification that the Apparatus identified on page 1, was assessed and tested and found to comply with the IEC Standard list below. This certificate is granted subject to the conditions as set out in IECEx Scheme Rules, IECEx 02 and Operational Documents as amended.
The apparatus and any acceptable variations to it specified in the schedule of this certificate and the identified documents, was found to comply with the following standards:
The Type XB15 flameproof housing comprises a cylindrical enclosure, manufactured in glass reinforced polyester by compression moulding, complete with a borosilicate wellglass cemented into the centre of the cover. In addition the wellglass may be protected by an optional guard arrangement fixed to the cover.
The cover is mated to the enclosure base by a threaded joint which is then locked by a M4 x 10mm long steel grub screw.
Up to three M20 or M25 (or NPT equivalent) cable entries are provided in the side wall of the enclosure. Internal earthing facilities are provided alongside the internal component connections.
The same XB15 flameproof housing, as described above, may also be used with alternative interior components in the FB15 and LD15.
The XB15 Xenon Beacon may be rated at 24V d.c. 48V d.c. and up to 254V a.c. With a maximum power dissipation of 30 Watts.
To allow the XB15 rated at 230/240V a.c. and having a 15J ‘U’ shaped Xenon tube and Version 2 P.C.B. and 60, 80 or 120 flash rate to be fitted with an end of line resistor12KΩ minimum 10W minimum resistor
In this configuration it will be given the type designation XB15R, see schedule
The Type FB15 Filament Lamp may be rated from 12V d.c. to 254V a.c. with a maximum power dissipation filament lamp of 60W or 100W.
The Type LD15 LED Beacon may be rated up to 48V d.c. with a maximum power dissipation of 13.5W
For all variants listed above the enclosure may be fitted with a terminal block with up to 12 ways and rated up to 25A.
1. Painting and surface finishes, other than those applied by the manufacturer, are not permitted
2. In order to maintain the dust tight integrity of the enclosures (IP6X), the threads of cable entry devices and stopping plugs shall be sealed in accordance with the applicable code of practice for flameproof installation.
To allow the XB15 to be fitted with an end of line resistor. In this configuration it will be given the type designation XB15R and shall be marked:
Ex db op is IIC T* Gb; Ex tb op is IIIC T*°C Db (Tamb -55°C to + *°C) IP6X *See Schedule
