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 electrical 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:
As this is a Unit Verification Certificate, no QAR is applicable as this certificate is specific to the items listed by serial number or other unique identification.
The termination boards series HiCTBxx-… and HiCTFxx-… are passive devices for the connection of intrinsically safe associated apparatus (barriers) of up to 8, 16 or 32 modules maximum, that realized the interface between apparatus placed in hazardous area and other placed in safe area.
The HiCTBxx-... and HiCTFxx-… boards are installed inside of a plastic basement, that shall be placed in an enclousure with minimum degree of protection IP20.
The termination boards can be equipped, like the other versions, with different types of connection devices:
See ANNEXE Issue 4 for further description.
