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

Surge Protectors series D*-LBF-* serve as transient suppressors in the lines of electronic circuits.

This approval applies to the following equipment: 
Base units Type DB-LBF-I1 and Type DB-LBF-I1.I and modules Type DP-LBF-I1.36.DE and Type
DP-LBF-I1.36.IE

 
CONDITIONS OF CERTIFICATION: YES as shown below:
 

Ambient temperature range:
-50 °C to +50 °C for T6;
-50 °C to +75 °C for T5;
-50 °C to +80 °C for T4.

The dielectric strength of at least 500 V of the intrinsically safe circuits of the Surge Protector series
D*-LBF-* is limited only by the overvoltage protection. Terminals X5, X6, X7 and X8 are considered to be connected to earth.

For use in type of protection Ex nA IIC T4...T6 Gc:
The Surge Protector series D*-LBF-* shall be installed into an enclosure, which meets the requirements of a recognized type of protection, in accordance with IEC 60079-0.
