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 Continental Disc Corporation BDI-FLX is a burst disc indicator system powered from an intrinsically safe interface (with galvanic isolation or from a zener barrier) for location in zone 0 or zone 20 hazardous areas. The burst disc indicator includes a resistive sensor element which changes resistance in response to bending, and therefore provides warning of the rupture disc's burst. An interface unit mounted in close proximity to the sensor converts the sensor signal into a signal to be interpreted by a switch amplifier or similar device in the non-hazardous area.
Intrinsic safety Parameters:
Ui = 12 V dcli = 60 mAPi = 180 mWCi = 1.11µFLi = 0
Temperature Class of the BDI-FLX sensor is marked as Tx, since the surface temperature is controlled by the process temperature being monitored. The sensor itself exhibits negligable temperature rise.
When located in an area requiring EPL Ga (e.g. a Zone 0 hazardous area), the user shall ensure that electrostatic charging of the interface enclosure cannot occur.
When located in an area requiring EPL Gb or Gc (e.g Zone 1 or Zone 2), the interface enclosure represents an electrostatic hazard and the enclosure shall only be cleaned using a damp cloth. Solvents shall not be used.
