Hazcon 300 helps manufacturers of electrical equipment navigate all the required ordinary locations Standards (Ordloc), hazardous locations Standards (Hazloc), the most common protection techniques, hazloc markings (for both zones and divisions), and installation requirements as per CEC and NEC (NFPA70) and accredited certification agencies in North America. Also, Hazcon 300 lists all the gas groups and the temperature meaning of the T-Classes.
There are, in fact, two classification systems in North America: the Zone System and the Class-division system. The Zone system of classification originated with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and is commonly used internationally and in North America. The Class-division system is mainly used in North America, especially in the USA.
Hazcon 300 has links embedded in it that help users assess the scope of each Standard listed in the app to ensure your products are within the scope of the Standards.
Hazcon 300 summarizes essential details in one chart, for hazloc markings for both Zone and Class-division systems in a very organized and smart way which will save time for users.
