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

Description

The I/O-Device type LB3x04 * / LB3x05 * is designed as associated apparatus and designated for installation in the safe area or alternatively in areas requiring EPL Gc equipment.

LB3x04 *, LB3x05 * provide the same hardware setup but different firmware.

 The l/O-devices type LB3x04 * / LB3x05 * are designated for installation on special backplanes type LB90xx * according to CoC IECEx BVS 09.0037X, fitted with power supply (power supply unit type LB9006 * / type LB9104 *).

 
CONDITIONS OF CERTIFICATION: YES as shown below:
 

General:

- the devices must only be used together with the respective backplanes

- along the IS-circuits equipotential bonding must be achieved.

 

Installation in the safe area:

The devices must be installed

- in an enclosure complying with IEC 60079-0 providing degree of IP protection IP54 according to IEC 60529, or

- in a controlled environment providing pollution degree 2 according to IEC/EN 60664-1.

 

Installation in areas requiring EPL Gc equipment (Zone 2):

The devices must be installed in an enclosure corresponding at least to EPL Gc according IEC 60079-0 and providing degree of IP protection IP54 according to IEC 60529.

EQUIPMENT(continued):
 

General product information:

Electronic components of the l/O-device are arranged on printed-circuit-boards (PCB) packaged in a Polycarbonate housing suitable for installation on special backplanes.

 

The front of the l/O housing show to 8 pole sockets inputs or outputs. These are connected via plug in connectors with side screw or front screw or cage clamp wire fasteners.

 

The l/O-device provides safe galvanic seperation between intrinsically safe circuits and non-ontrinsically safe signal circuits / non-intrinsically safe power supply on the PCB up to a sum of peak values of rated voltages of 375 V (type LB3104 * / LB3105 *) or according to level of requirements 'ic' as a minimum (type LB3004 * / LB3005 *).

 

Various versions of the l/O-device provide different level of IS protection:

 

-type LB3104 * / LB3105 *; up to four active output / passive input circuits that can be used to supply 2-wire or 3-wire transmitter circuits and/or analouge inputs for measurement purposes; level of IS protection Ex ia llC / Ex ia l / Ex ia lllC

 

- type LB3004 * / LB3005 *; up to four active output / passive input circuits that can be used to supply 2-wire or 3-wire transmitter circuits and/or analouge inputs for measurement purposes; level of IS protection Ex ia llC

 

The up to four active output / passive input circuits are not galvanically seperated of each other (common ground)





Type Code of LB-devices providing external circuits tpe or protection IS

I/O-Device type LB3x04 +, LB3x05 *.
(In the full designation the "x" is replaced by numbers "0" or "1" an the "*" by letters and numbers marking non ex-relevant details).
