Proceedings of the 1996 IEEE Industry Applications Society Conference : The 31st IAS Annual Meeting. San Diego, CA, USA, 1996/10/06 - 1996/10/10.
The 1993 National Electrical Code (NEC) contained a very controversial proposal which is to change the area classification system for Class I hazardous (classified) locations from a two-division system to a three-division system.
Similarly, in 1987, a number of Western Canadian users and consultants began to develop a real awareness of the Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) System for classified locations.
The approach of this report was to assume that both the North American and the IEC systems for classified locations have been proven to be safe.
The report attempts to emphasize the differences between the two systems.
A comparison is made between a typical North American installation and a typical IEC installation to illustrate the impact of change to a three-division system.
