  • SMT, 1994-1998. Fifth call for proposals supporting document. Topic 22: Measurement of parameters caracterizing the risk and protection modes for installations in potentially explosive atmospheres


More detailed and more technical background information is given relating to this topic of the fifth call for proposals under the specific programme for standards, measurements and testing (SMT), 1994-1998. Directive 94/9/EC foresees that the European standards should also cover the risks of ignition in the various hazardous areas of an electrical installation built up in atmospheres with potential risks of explosion. This project should:

- lead to a numerical method for identifying the extent of hazardous areas;
- also introduce the consequences of an ignition into the process and used procedures.

A time scale and expected result format are also described.
