Installation of electrical equipment in plant locations where there is a risk of fire or explosion necessitates specially certified equipment. The authority with jurisdiction classifies hazardous areas. The properties of the flammable vapors, liquids, gases, combustible dust, or fibers that may be present, as well as the likelihood of an explosive concentration or quantity, are used to classify the material. The three most common for electrical equipment in hazardous areas are ATEX (Europe), IECEx (International), and either the Class/Division or Class/Zone System (North America).
