Everyday factors such as weather, water, and dust create problems in their own right; problems that increase signiﬁcantly in the presence of corrosive products and explosive atmospheres. While the barriers presented by many of these environmental factors were successfully overcome, hazardous atmospheres proved to be the ultimate challenge for communications equipment. This new generation of telephone equipment — safe even in hazardous environments — permits users to take full advantage of the existing telephone system with features never available from intercom, cellular or radio systems. Introduction of telephony to the plant site environment allows users to benefit by: • augmenting the existing telephone system and its ability to access the global telephone network Low voltage, intrinsically safe intercom systems were a ﬁrst step in providing a link. While this technology virtually eliminated the potential for sparking, low voltage placed signiﬁcant constraints on a system’s ability to keep pace with technology. reducing costs by eliminating duplication and the need for specialized, incompatible, and independent wiring and equipment providing reliable communications where RF Interference would hamper cellular and wireless options At the same time, telephone systems permit users to access a wide range of convenient features such as private or conference calling, call-hold, call-transfer, speed dialing, oﬀ-site calling, voice mail and more. A Continuing Legacy of Success. In 1993 Guardian began introducing telephones and communication systems for use in other rigorous service conditions such as salt spray onboard ships and at dockside, high temperature environments, high humidity and shock in hard-rock mines, handling areas for corrosive chemicals, dusty potash mines, vandal-prone public locations, and weather exposed construction sites. In 1986, Guardian developed and marketed a new generation of safe, hazardous area communications equipment that overcame the disadvantages of stand-alone, low-voltage intercoms. Communications — Easy, Reliable and Safe In corporate oﬃces, on construction sites, in humming factories, deep under the earth or far out at sea on oil rigs or ships, the telephone is an indispensable communications tool. No matter what environmental conditions exist, telephone and paging systems are constantly relied on for direct, immediate, safe and clear exchanges of information. Guardian’s designs and technology make it easy and cost effective to extend telephone communication from the oﬃce to anywhere on an industrial site regardless of exposure to weather, water, dust, humidity, corrosive or explosive atmospheres. Our equipment easily connects to existing telephone networks without the need for separate internal systems, special wiring or isolation barriers. PSG7 D3 For a lower cost, Guardian provides combined telephone, intercom and paging Guardian Telecom capabilities as well as a full range of telephone features in one easy to install, easy to maintain and easy to use system. Our goal and vision is to provide seamless communication solutions that respond to customers’ needs for today and tomorrow. At Guardian we make communications reliable by ensuring products are ﬁt for duty by subjecting each model to grueling tests in the laboratory and out on the job. All of our equipment meets or exceeds standards set by major telephone equipment suppliers and utility companies. Guardian telephones and equipment have been designed for and successfully used in freezing Arctic winters, searing Middle East temperatures, the rigors of oil well drilling platforms and the hazardous atmosphere of oil refineries. Our products provide safe communication. We design and manufacture our telephone equipment and systems speciﬁcally to meet or exceed the challenges of harsh and hazardous environments. When the bottom line is safety, you can always count on Guardian for dependable communications. Guardian equipment and systems oﬀer the reliability, safety, ﬂexibility and capability of a telephone — complete with its full range of services — to everyone regardless of their work environment. We are proud to continue that legacy of providing cost-eﬀective, safe and reliable communications solutions to industries around the world.

Hazardous Areas According to the EN standards description, Hazardous Areas are when Potentially Explosive Atmospheres exist where there is a risk of explosion due to mixtures of gas/ air, vapour/air, dust/air or other ﬂammable combinations. Process plants, reﬁneries, oil and gas platforms etc are divided into Zones (European and IEC method) or Divisions (North American method) according to the likelihood of a potentially explosive atmosphere being present. The following standards are used to deﬁne the classiﬁcation for Guardian Telecom Zone 1 products: EN 60079-0:2006: Electrical Apparatus for use in Zones 0, 1 & 2 Haz Loc General Requirements EN 60079-7:2007: Electrical Apparatus for use in Zones 0, 1 & 2 Haz Loc Increased Safety “e” Table 1. Comparing between Zones and Divisions European & IEC Classiﬁcation Zone 0 (gasses) Deﬁnition of Zone or Division North American Classiﬁcation An area in which an explosive mixture is continuously present or present for long periods Class I Division 1 (gases) Zone 20 (dusts) Zone 1 (gasses) Class II Division 1 (dusts) An area in which an explosive mixture is likely to occur in normal operation Class I Division 1 (gases) Zone 21 (dusts) Zone 2 (gasses) Zone 22 (dusts) Class II Division 1 (dust) An area in which an explosive mixture in not likely to occur in normal operation and if it occurs it will exist only for a short time Class I Division 2 (gases) Class II Division 1 & 2 (dusts) EN 60079-11:2007: Electrical Apparatus for use in Zones 0, 1 & 2 Haz Loc Intrinsic Safety “i” Class III Division 1 (fibres) EN 60079-18:2004: Electrical Apparatus for use in Zones 1 - Encapsulation “m” Class III Division 2 (fibres) EN 60950-1:2006: Information Technology Equipment - Safety PSG7-3 Note that many (but certainly not all) Countries outside of North America use the IEC Standards as a basis for their own national standards.

Certiﬁcates indicate to the user that equipment has been assessed against the relevant regulations in use at the date of issue. Each certiﬁcate has its own unique number which are identiﬁed as shown in the following example.

It identifies to each member state that the marked equipment is designed in accordance with the various standards and was intended to aﬀord free trade around all European Community member states. *Does not apply to equipment designed for work underground in mines susceptible to ﬁre damp. CE — Community European Mark The CE Community European Mark is intended to allow free trade between member states. Acceptable Atmosphere: G = Gas D = Dust Understanding ATEX Markings ATEX manufactured equipment is marked to identify the hazardous area category that it can be used in. An ATEX mark is made up of three components: First Component Third Component This is the gas group identified by the Roman Numeral II: it indicates that it is intended for use in a surface industry. The third component is the explosive atmosphere which could be formed by gases, vapors or combustible dusts or a combination of both. Second Component II 2 G D The second component is the category identiﬁer. There are three categories: 1, 2 and 3. Dust Gas Category Gas Group Surface Industry (note: no sub group) An atmosphere is identiﬁed by G for Gas or D of Dust. It can also be a combination of both, i.e. GD. Categories equate with zones: Category 1 equipment is suitable for Zone 0 or Zone 20 Category 2 equipment is suitable for Zone 1 or Zone 21 Category 3 equipment is suitable for Zone 2 or Zone 22 Guardian Zone 1 Phone Markings: Guardian Telecom Product & Services Guide — About Guardian • Knowledge Base • Glossary www.guardiantelecom.com PSG7-3 1-10 II 2 G Ex e ib mb IIC T5 II 2 D Ex tD A21 IP66 100˚C Hazardous and Classified Locations Hazardous and classified locations are essentially the same. They can be defined as locations where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to the presence of flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dusts and ignitable fibres or flyings. When an area is “classified” hazardous gases, vapors or dust have been identified and put in a specific Class, Division / (IEC) Zone and Group. Once classified, only industrial telephone communications equipment which is approved for that Class, Division and Group can be installed and used. Identifying NEC® Hazardous Locations — Class, Division / (IEC) Zone and Group The information presented in this section is for general reference purposes only. All applicable local and national regulations and practices concerning Explosion Proof and Hazardous Area communications equipment must be strictly followed and adhered to. For detailed information refer to published documents on hazardous location deﬁnitions and installation requirements presented by 1) NEC®, 2) CEC Canadian Electrical Code, 3) IEC.

In the U.S. and Canada it is permitted to apply its system of classiﬁcation of hazardous locations to Class l locations. It is now part of the NEC® (article 505) and CE Code (section 18). Guardian Telecom designs and manufactures individual products that adhere to the high standards of NEC®/CEC, CENELEC and IEC. They have been tested and approved or certiﬁed by recognized third party testing agencies. While some countries do not have a set of regulations in force they can rely on products that adhere to these classiﬁcation systems to meet their needs for safety, quality and reliability. NEC® Divisions Identified IEC Zones Identified Hazardous Areas are divided into two divisions Hazardous Areas are divided into three zones Division 1: An area where ignitable concentrations of ﬂammable gases, vapors or liquids can exist all of the time or some of the time under normal operation conditions. Zone 0: Continuous Hazard An area where ignitable concentrations of ﬂammable gases, vapors or liquids can exist all of the time or for long periods of time under normal conditions. Zone 1: Intermittent Hazard An area where ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, vapors or liquids can exist some of the time under normal operating conditions. Division 2: An area where ignitable concentrations of ﬂammable gases, vapors or liquids are not likely to exist under normal operation conditions. Zone 2: Hazard Under Abnormal Conditions An area where ignitable concentrations of ﬂammable gases, vapors or liquids are not likely to exist under normal operation conditions. Groups Identified After “Classes/Divisions” are established they are then broken down into “Groups”. North American and IEC Groups Class I Areas in which flammable gases or vapors may be present in the air in sufficient quantities to be explosive. • Group A: Atmospheres containing acetylene • Group B: Atmospheres such as butadiene, ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, acrolein, or hydrogen ( or gases or vapors equivalent in hazard to hydrogen such as manufactured gas). • Group C: • Group D: Atmospheres such as cyclopropane, ethyl ether, or gases or vapor of equivalent hazard. Atmospheres such as acetone, alcohol, ammonia, benzene, benzol, butane, gasoline, hexane, lacquer solvent vapors, naphtha, natural gas, propane, or gas or vapor of equivalent hazard. Class II Areas made hazardous by the presence of combustible dust. Gas or Vapor IEC A Acetylene II C B Hydrogen II C C Ethylene II C C Ethyl Ether II C C Cydopropane II C C Butadiene 1-3 II C D Propane II C D Ethane II C D Butane II C • Group E: Atmospheres containing combustible metals: aluminum, magnesium, titanium, zinc, bronze, chromium, tin, cadmium. D Benzene II C • Group F: Coal, charcoal, carbon black D Pentane II C • Group G: Atmospheres containing combustible alfalfa, cocoa, coﬀee, corn, cornstarch, malt, rice, sugar, wheat, cellulose acetate. D Heptane II C D Acetone II C D Methyl Ethyle II C D Methyl Alcohol II C D Methyl Alcohol II C Class III Areas made hazardous by the presence of easily ignitable fibres or flyings, but which are not likely to be in suspension in the air in quantities that are sufficient to ignite. • Division 1 & 2: Cotton lint, ﬂax, rayon. *While the NEC®/CE and IEC classiﬁcation systems are similar they are not identical and care should be taken to avoid confusing Group ll and Class ll. At this time the NEC® or CE Code does not recognize any CENELEC or IEC dust classiﬁcations. NEC® - National Electrical Code is a registered trademark.

Depending on the country, governing body, jurisdiction and regulations, there are a number of standards that are used to define the type and applicability of enclosures. NEMA National Electrical Manufacturers Association Enclosures Types IP Ingress Protection Code Designations Approximate Conversion of NEMA Enclosure Types to IP Designations NEMA Enclosures Developed by National Electrical Manufacturers Association, NEMA enclosure protection designations have been adopted by UL, CSA and other North American conformance bodies. In Non-Hazardous Locations, speciﬁc enclosure types, their applications, and the environmental conditions they are designed to protect against, when completely and properly installed, are as follows: Guardian Telecom designs, manufactures and distributes telephone products that have been tested by CSA/UL to the following NEMA standards: Type 3R Enclosures constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against incidental contact with the enclosed equipment; to provide a degree of protection against falling dirt, rain, sleet, and snow; and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure. Type 4 Enclosures constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against incidental contact with the enclosed equipment; to provide a degree of protection against falling dirt, rain, sleet, snow, windblown dust, splashing water, and hose-directed water; and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure. Type 4X Enclosures constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against incidental contact with the enclosed equipment; to provide a degree of protection against falling dirt, rain, sleet, snow, windblown dust, splashing water, hose-directed water, and corrosion; and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.

Example Code: IP 66 1st Digit 2nd Digit Not Protected 0 Not Protected 1 Protected against solid objects up to 50 mm 1 Protected against vertically falling drops of water; e.g. condensation 2 Protected against solid objects up to 12 mm 2 Protected against direct sprays of water when tilted up to 15N from vertical 3 Protected against solid objects over 2.5mm 3 Protected against direct sprays of water when tilted up to 60N from vertical 4 Protected against solid objects up to 1 mm 4 Protected against splashing water from all directions - limited ingress permitted 5 Dust protected 5 Protected against low projections of water from all directions - limited ingress permitted 6 Dust tight 6 Protected against strong water jets from all directions; e.g. heavy seas 7 Protected against the eﬀects of temporary immersion between 15 cm and 1 m 8 Protected against the eﬀects of continuous immersion under pressure 9 Protected against high pressure, high temperature jets of water from multiple directions 2. Protection from liquids (water) The ﬁrst number or digit designates protection from solid objects, while the second number or digit designates protection from moisture. The levels for the ﬁrst digit (protection against solid or foreign objects) vary from 1 through 6. The levels for the second digit (protection from moisture) vary from 1 through 9. Protection Against Liquids 0 An IP rating normally has two numbers. 1. Protection from solid objects or materials Protection Against Foreign Objects A larger number means increased protection. Approximate Conversions of Nema Enclosure Types to IP Classification Designations NEMA ratings can only be approximately compared to those of the IP system. Other factors such as corrosion protection and construction details are involved in the NEMA system; please refer to each organization’s oﬃcial documentation for details. The table provides a near equivalent guide for converting from NEMA Enclosure Type Numbers to IEC Enclosure Classiﬁcation Designations. This information is provided as a guide only for comparing NEMA enclosure types to IEC designations. The table should not be used to convert from IEC classiﬁcations to NEMA Types and the NEMA to IEC conversion should be veriﬁed by test.
