Schedule
 
EQUIPMENT:
Equipment and systems covered by this certificate are as follows:
 

General product information:
Electronic devices are mounted in housings of Polyamid PA6 TV20. The front of the I/O housings show one blue socket (6 pole or 8 pole) for intrinsically safe (level of protection 'ia') or green socket for intrinsically safe (level of protection 'ic') inputs or outputs. These are connected via plug in connectors with side screw or front screw or cage clamp wire fasteners.
 
Type Code of LB-devices providing external circuits type or protection IS
II/O-Device type LB7x04 *, LB3x02 A1, LB3x06 *, LB4x01 *, LB4x02 *, LB4x04 *, LB4x05 *, LB4x06 *
(In the full designation the "x" is replaced by numbers "0" or "1" and the "*" by letters and numbers marking non ex-relevant details).
 
CONDITIONS OF CERTIFICATION: YES as shown below:
 


General:
Electronic Remote I/O Input/Output-Device (I/O-Device) type LB 7x0* * are designated for installation on special backplanes according to the CoC IECEx BVS 09.0037X, fitted with Power supply.
 
Parameters of IS input/output circuits level of protection 'ic' of LB devices comply in addition with type of protection 'nL' according to IEC 60079-15:2005 without change and may be used to support / supply 'Ex nL' equipment.
 
The backplanes carrying LB devices are intended for installation in the safe area and optionally in areas requiring Gc, Dc or Mb equipment.
 
Along the IS input- / output-circuit equipotential bonding shall be achieved.
 
Installation in areas requiring Gc equipment (Zone 2):
- the backplanes carrying LB devices shall be installed in an enclosure providing degree of protection IP 54 as a minimum
 
Installation in areas requiring Dc equipment (Zone 22):
- in case of presence of conductive dust, installation of the backplanes carrying LB devices in an enclosure providing degree of protection IP 6X is required
- in case of presence of non-conductive dust, installation of the backplanes carrying LB devices in an enclosure providing degree of protection IP 5X is required
 
Installation in areas requiring Mb equipment (areas susceptible to firedamp requiring a high level of protection):
- the backplanes carrying LB devices shall be installed in an enclosure providing a suitable type of explosion protection (flameproof enclosure 'd' or pressurization 'px' or powder filling 'q'
- the installation of backplanes carrying LB devices in an enclosure providing a suitable type of explosion protection shall be subjected to individual certification procedure

EQUIPMENT(continued):
 

Description
The I/O-Device type LB*x0* * is designed as associated apparatus and designated for installation in the safe area or alternatively in areas requiring EPL Gc equipment.
 
Electronic components of the I/O-Device are arranged on printed-circuit-boards (PCB) packaged in a plastic enclosure suitable for installation on special backplanes.
 
The I/O-Device provides safe galvanic separation between intrinsically safe circuits and non intrinsically safe signal circuits / non intrinsically safe power supply on the PCB up to a sum of peak values of rated voltages of 375 V.
 
Various versions of the I/O-Device provide different level of IS protection:
 
- type LB*10* *; up to four active input/output circuits not galvanically separated of each other, level of IS protection Ex ia IIC / Ex ia I / Ex ia IIIC
 
- type LB*00* *; up to four active input/output circuits not galvanically separated of each other, level of IS protection Ex ic IIC.
 
The function DI = Digital Input, DO = Digital Output, AO = Analogue Output and AI = Analogue Input is software-defined and does not affect Ex-relevant electrical parameters of the IS circuits.
 
In deviation from LB7x04 *, the devices LB3x0* *, LB4x0* * provide given function not changeable by software. The Ex-relevant electrical parameters of the IS circuits of all models listed above are identical.
