IEC 60079-27 pdf download Explosive atmospheres – Part 27: Fieldbus intrinsically safe concept (FISCO)
1 Scope
This part of IEC 60079 contains the details of apparatus, systems and installation practice for use with the Fieldbus Intrinsically Safe Concept (FISCO). It is based on the concepts of Manchester encoded, bus powered systems designed in accordance with IEC 61 1 58-2 which is the physical layer standard for Fieldbus installations.
The constructional and installation requirements of FISCO apparatus and systems are determined by IEC 60079-1 1 , IEC 60079-1 4, and IEC 60079-25, except as modified by this standard. Part of a Fieldbus device may be protected by any of the methods of explosion protection listed in IEC 60079-0, appropriate to the zone of intended use. In these circumstances, the requirements of this standard apply only to that part of the apparatus directly connected to the intrinsically safe trunk or spurs.
NOTE 1 Certification to the FISCO requirements does not prevent apparatus also being certified and marked to IEC 60079-1 1 in the conventional manner so that they may be used in other systems. Some apparatus certified before this standard was published but not necessarily complying with the electrical parameters of this standard may be marked “Suitable for FISCO systems”. This apparatus may be accepted in a FISCO system, if the comparison of the electrical parameters Uo, Io, P o, with Ui, Ii, Pi, demonstrate compatibility with the remainder of the system, and all the other requirements of this standard are met.
NOTE 2 A typical system is illustrated in Annex A.
NOTE 3 Generally, “ic” FISCO systems are intended for use in zone 2 locations. FISCO systems are predominantly intended for use in zone 1 and 2 locations, but may enter zone 0 locations if specifically permitted to do so by the documentation.
NOTE 4 Edition 1 of this standard introduced the FNICO concept to cover the use of Fieldbus concepts in zone 2 utilizing the energy-limited [nL] concept. This standard substitutes the “ic ” concept for the energy-limited concept, but permits the continued use of FNICO and nL apparatus.
