Key Elements of Writing the Va Form 21 0518 1

thank you for joining us here today.everybody for Gilson's presentation of.the fundamentals of has this area.classifications for us to get started I.suppose I should probably introduce.myself so my name is Joe Ryan I'm the VP.of Sales and Marketing at precision.digital and I've been marketing selling.designing has this area instrumentation.for about 15 years with them now and so.I've had a lot of exposure to that.probably not as much as some of you here.in the audience today but a fair amount.and as I actually was an engineer.designing some of these products I also.have a unique view of the agencies.themselves and so hopefully I think all.of you will learn something here today.that'll prove useful in your jobs that.most likely involve this kind of.equipment.so what we're going to do here today is.we're going to talk about why we.classify hazardous area equipment.obviously we want to prevent explosions.and keep everyone safe but there's a.little bit more to it than that talk.about the definition of what a hazardous.location is and then start diving into.some of the terms that many of you have.heard before like what is a class a.classification like a div a class an.area maybe his own what are those things.mean then we're going to talk about the.different types of protection methods.you've probably heard those terms thrown.around like explosion proof or.intrinsically safe or not incentive well.what does that mean and how does it.relate to your products and how you're.trying to connect these up and then.we're going to end with an actual look.at a sample label you'd see on a.hazardous area product and really try to.dive in all that alphabet soup that's on.there so you can understand what all.that means we'll also take a look at a.few real-world examples of hazardous.area products and show you how you might.choose between one or the other or.determine which kind of technology is.right for you.so what do you hope to take away from.this by the time we're done well I hope.you've learned the basics of why and how.hazardous areas are labeled to classify.not just that they are but really the.reasons behind it I think that's always.important to remember when you're.talking about something that's safety.related I hope you've learned how to.break down that alphabet soup of labels.marking symbols agencies and regulations.that you see when you pick up a.hazardous area product you see that.metal nameplate on the side of it and I.hope you can put it all together and get.some real-world examples that might.prove helpful to you about what you.might want to choose for has this area.Agencies or technologies for your next.project so let's start with why.classifying areas hazardous right the.most obvious one is you want to.eliminate the potential for an explosion.there are lots of reasons why explosions.can happen these agencies have decades.of experience figuring those out working.with industry to make sure that these.approvals account for essentially any.kind of hazard you might find in plant.but beyond just the plant we also want.to promote the safety of people you know.really that's the number one reason.you're doing this is because you.wouldn't you want to make sure the.equipment in your plants is properly.approved so that your personnel are safe.now graduation season are in reality.insurance agencies and so you might.think it's property damage but people.are a company's biggest asset they're.the largest liability insurance.companies and realistically morally just.the right thing to do to use the right.equipment get it installed properly and.make sure you're following all the.regulations and guidelines so property.damage is important but really the.number one thing is the safety of your.plant personnel so what is.Loden yeah well how it actually causes.something happen well as we go through.the presentation it's good to keep in.mind that to have an explosion you've.got to have an ignition source you need.something that's actually providing that.that heat or that power to ignite the.atmosphere you've got to have an.oxidizer usually that's just the oxygen.in the air that that's your fumes so to.speak and then you've got to have a.flammable substance something that's.actually going to ignite that's your.actual hazardous material and the reason.it's good to keep these in mind is.because as we go through this you're.going to see there's different types of.protection technologies different.protection methods that all protect by.going after parts of this three-part.equation that causes an explosion to.happen where might you run into.hazardous area as well you might see.them of course in say an oil refinery.but beyond that you might see them in.paint shops you might see even corn or.flour mills anywhere where you have.potentially explosive dusts floating.around chemical plants have plenty of.hazardous areas in them liquid transfer.terminals we're working with those.hazardous materials I'm really anywhere.where you have tanks they're holding.anything other than water you probably.have some form of hazardous material.going in through there even at places.say an asphalt shop might have has this.areas because they have a tank that.contains their own fuel supply so lots.of facilities have these chances are.yours does hopefully you know what they.are if you're not quite sure there's.probably someone that you can ask just.to be familiar with with what the areas.are that you need to keep an eye out for.these kind of equipment and behave.properly around so it's three main ways.you're going to provide an explosion.there of course a lot of prevention a.lot of protection methods but these are.the ones you're going to see most.commonly so the first thing you can do.is you can contain the explosion so that.if there is a spark for example from.electronics if there is a flammable gas.present or other material you're going.to hold that explosion contained from.getting out to the other areas of the.playing field out into the just general.atmosphere and that's where you see.explosion-proof devices that's what that.explosion-proof device is meant to do.these big metal boxes that explosion.group devices are designed inside of.ours and not to protect the electronics.from the explosion which is a mistake a.lot of people will make it's designed so.that if there is an explosion inside of.the housing it contains all that energy.it doesn't let that flame escape and.ignite all of gas that might be in the.area then you've got the ability to.remove the spark or other potential.source of ignition so that even if there.are has this materials presence you.can't actually cause an explosion.because it's not enough energy to ignite.that atmosphere and so that's when.you're going to see non incentive or.intrinsically safe designs they go right.in the hazardous gas for example or.right into the dust cloud however they.don't have enough power if installed and.operated correctly to actually ignite.that area then you've got isolation of.the explosive substance from ignition.sources and that's where you see purged.panels you're gonna say well inside of.this box perhaps you have electronics.that if something were to go wrong could.actually cause a spark or caused.ignition and so you're going to purge.the area so that there's no possibility.of that hazardous material getting.inside the box so for example in this.case you pressurize inside the box and.you're going to keep that hazardous gas.out by pumping in something or inert so.that's how you use that's the purpose of.explosion-proof devices is and on.incentive designs versus purge devices.they all really attack a different.element in that equation of what causes.an explosion.where do all these guidelines come from.that we're gonna be talking about well.they're a mix of places really you've.got osho that has some guidelines you've.got the National Electric Code can any.electric code.the NFPA you've got insurance.requirements you've got documents at.some facilities especially larger.companies that have their own.regulations on how to control these and.what kind of marks are acceptable.so the actual testing standards are.really made up of a wide range of.sources all depending on what mark what.country and what protection method you.have here in North America what are you.most likely to see well you're most.likely to see these marks that would be.Factory mutual or FM underwriters.laboratories or ul or Canadian standards.Association CSA there are others however.these are the most common FM it's.actually private insurance organization.they started in the insurance business.and they started putting their mark on.things because obviously for going to.insure somewhere that has a hazardous.area you want to make sure that it's.safe and so that's how the FM mark came.to be it's very popular in the United.States you don't really see it too much.outside of there and if you're going to.get a product definite proved they're.going to be the ones who actually do the.testing so anything you see with that FM.market and there are variant versions of.these this particular one is for both.Canada and the United States and it.assumes that there's a lot of room on.whatever we're putting a smart con so.you may see products that don't have.that approved written on them you may.see products that are only approved for.the US or Canada or that you may see.either none or both of these little.seeds or us's those are different.variants of FM approval underwriters.laboratory another very common one in.the United States they're a private.standards testing organization they're.now they don't have deals with CSA so.they're becoming more popular with.Canada as an alternative to CSA they.also do all their own testing and so if.you were going to have a product with a.UL mark on it something like this listed.mark here which again is the.we populated version this is a listed.product with both Canadian and US.approvals they're going to be the ones.who do that test and they can get that.Canadian approval which tests it to all.the same Canadian standards as CSA would.um UL does have another looking mark.that they're trying to promote right now.that looks more like that it's just.another variant of the mark and then.you've got the Canadian standards.Association of CSA that is a government.driven organization up in Canada they.have agreements with ula they test the.same standard so they do have a mark.that has a US on there most of the time.you'll see CSA it's just gonna have the.CSA logo on it which we just tested in.the Canadian standards but they can do.us as well and they actually fairly.recently purchased Sierra which is a.European organization so they can really.get out there and have any more global.outreach getting other marks as well so.sometimes we need to use CCS a you're.seeing things like a text and such more.common which are popular in Europe but.those are the ones you're most likely.going to see here in the United States.now you may also have products that are.listed with international approvals.mostly these are based out of Europe and.the two most pop you gonna find there.are 8x and IEC both of which have their.European names which I'm not even going.to begin to try to an out pronounce so.8x is really storing the European Union.although it doesn't make it to worldwide.countries unlike most of the US.standards it's a harmonized standard.that is not tied to a specific testing.agency so the European Union publishes.this set of standards and then approved.notified bodies to do the testing so.you've got different countries that have.different companies that I'll compete.for putting the same mark on the product.it's not like UL where if you want UL.you send it to UL and they test it if.you want 8x then all you do is send it.to one of these notified bodies and they.tested for any text approvals I.see is essentially very similar I'm.popular in European Union as well as.some other countries like Australia it's.really a competitor to 8x it testing is.also done by notified bodies and so what.do a text and IC mean to US companies.well it's going to depend on your.company it's gonna depend on where you.get your insurance it's going to depend.on the standards that you follow.specifically is our 8x and I see.appropriate for your facility that's a.decision that unfortunately your your.facility is going to have to make with.input of course from local standards and.insurance companies and general company.policy so a lot goes into a hazardous.area rating.you've got area classifications sure.you've all heard the terms like class 1.class 2 and then you've had dealer zones.right so you've got a class 1 div 2.sometimes you might hear about zones a.popular thing in Europe that's sort of.moving to the United States but mostly.we're all about divisions here then.you've got equipment groups and.temperature classes barriers protection.concepts like explosion-proof.intrinsically safe not incentive and.you've got NEMA and IP codes and so what.I really want to talk about each one of.these and give you a sense of what they.all stand for and what their purpose is.in the hazardous area approval so let's.talk about class definitions first.you've got three basic classes of.equipment.class one is for areas where flammable.vapors or gases are present so anywhere.you've got a flammable gas you know.you're talking about a class one area.you know five or the places you may see.that or oil refineries paint shops.offshore oil rigs anything where you've.got materials that produce a flammable.vapor or gas that compares to class two.which is all about dusts so now we're.talking about a coal mining grain silos.hay storage plenty of other wise sort of.inert materials when you put them in the.air as a cloud of dust.come flammable and so anywhere Eve that.got that going on you're talking about a.class to environment and in class three.is for areas where you've got ignitable.fibers or small pieces of material that.may be in the area that can become.flammable so you're talking paper mills.textile mills woodworking facilities in.places where you may have small bits not.quite dusts but like fibers that can.either form layers on material or be.present in the air that could combust.and the reason you have all these.different classes is because equipment.gets classified to these different.environments one piece of equipment.that's good in a class to area that it.protects against dust igniting may not.be appropriately sealed or protected to.prevent a flammable vapor or gas from.causing a problem so you've got to know.the classification of your area to make.sure that your equipment and your.installations all are approved the.appropriate class classification.describe the frequency or the of the.presence of combustible gases and dust.within Hauser Siri as well and this is.where we get into divisions and zones.most of you here are probably familiar.with divisions divisions are what's been.used in the United States for years.zones are something you see mostly in.Europe you'll see zones a lot of time on.8 X or IEC product but if you've got an.FM or a UL product then you're going to.be talking about divisions most likely.and so you've got division 1 which means.your hazardous or ignitable substance is.expected to be present for long periods.of time you just know because of a.nature of the work you're doing that the.materials you're working with are going.to produce or maybe you're working.directly with hazardous gases and vapors.that's in contrast to division 2 which.means you're only going to have those.present in abnormal conditions so for.example division 2 you see a picture.there of a gas station well under normal.circumstances there's not a large amount.of gas vapor moving around this facility.maybe you've got some right at the spout.but usually there's not just clouds of.it floating around the gas plant whereas.if you're in a manufacturing facility if.you're within so many feet of a opening.into the top of the tank well you know.that just during regular operation you.could have somebody open this hatch and.vapors got to come out and they could be.potentially hazardous so Division 2 does.require quite a string safety mechanism.since Division 1 because the vision one.you're assuming that something is going.to be there division 2 you're saying.something is only going to be there.something sort of already gone wrong now.zones those are a newer classification.method really started the 90s again if.you don't see it a lot in North America.but is becoming more popular and when it.does show up here it's based on.international standards so here I've got.a useful slide that crosses over those.divisions and zones for you if you do.find that you're running the zones a lot.so here in the in these tables what we.describe for you is the.fail material code if it's present.continuously in other words it's just.always there or intermittently but under.normal circumstances you'll notice the.both of those are Division one.so we're saying in this case as well.let's say I have a hatch on a tank.opening that hatch is going to be.something that I know is going to happen.but if the hatch is closed then I don't.have any gas president if the hatch is.open I do well that would be an.intermittent present material it's it's.sometimes they are sometimes not but I.know that it's going to happen and when.it happens everything's okay.then you've got present abnormally which.means well I'm only going to have gas.next to this particular area of the tank.in the case where there's a leak or my.air handling system isn't working.properly or or something else has.happened that's causing it to go wrong.and that's your division 2 and that's.your zone 2 the zone system just breaks.it down between zone 0 and zone 1 to.make a differentiation between present.continuously and present intermittently.the zone system also adjusts as gases.versus dusts and so what you're talking.combustible dusts you're talking about.zone 2 versus gases where you're talking.about single digit zone so you've gots.on 0 1 & 2 versus 20 21 and 22 so I know.we're gonna be sharing the slides up the.presentation this might be something for.those of you deal with zones and trying.to understand the differences to take a.look at post presentation so before we.dive more into the details of hazardous.area approvals and things that some.people may not be too familiar with.I thought we pause for a minute see if.there's any questions from the audience.we do have one.four states we have a manufacturer with.a product that has class 1 div 1 rating.from CSA but not yet from FM although it.was submitted this FM and CSA have two.tests to the same standards for class 1.div 1.unfortunately they really don't.now those standards will be very close.but they are not exactly the same so for.the manufacturer of that product that.has CSA on to get FM FM is probably.going to want to do a slightly different.suite of tests than what the CSA mark.would require and that's why it takes.manufactures a time and money to be able.to put multiple marks on their products.to give you a real world example from my.experience at precision digital we have.products that have FM approval and we.have products that have ul approval ul.and FM do different testing on the.labels you know something most people.may not even think about what kinds of.chemicals are your labels going to be.exposed to and will they adhere will.they keep the markings on them are they.going to get damaged so that somebody.can't read the serial number later some.may think it's a minor difference but as.a result you have a lot of work that.goes into testing it one way versus the.other and in the end they're both just.going to give you a aus has this area.approval because the standards are.slightly different now if that were ul.and CSA it might be a little different.but uh because they have agreements with.each other but as you're talking FM and.CSA they will be similar standards they.will not be identical but hopefully if.you need FM hopefully they get you FM.now is CSA acceptable in that facility.it's gonna be a call to be made by that.facility with a lot of input from others.we actually do have one more States.purge panels I will be interested on how.to address panel mounted devices such as.precision elision digital meters it.seems to be a practice that as long it.is NEMA forefront is it is acceptable.but I feel like there needs to be more.clarification on.sure and you're right just something.being NEMA for is not going to be.sufficient for it to get used in a panel.a purged panel is going to have.pressures inside of it and NEMA doesn't.really address that the NEMA ratings as.we'll see later really have to do with.ingress protection in other words can.water get in here can dusts get in here.it does not test or can gases get into.that panel it does not test for whether.or not the product itself for example.that the precision digital panel meter.can withstand the internal pressures.that are pushing out or could that.potentially cause a break in a face.plate or somesuch now that having been.said precision digital panel meters are.used in purged panels all the time but.because there's not a a purge panel.panel meter approval for them that purge.panel needs to get looked at by the.appropriately marketing agency in order.to give it approvals and then they'll.usually either issue an approval for the.entire design just to be made in the.perpetuity they'll issue an approval for.a certain number of those designs to be.built in a specific way or they'll issue.an approval for this one particular unit.all depending on what the person.building the purge panel is looking for.so my advice there would be a right that.that NEMA 4 is just not enough to assume.that well I'm gonna put this in here.therefore I'm still keeping my hazardous.area approvals the agency is going to.have to be involved and they're gonna.have to give it their stamp of approval.in order to move forward and what's that.right if yeah we can certainly keep the.questions coming in and I'll just move.forward and we'll dive a little bit more.into some of the other types of.information you might see related that.has this area approvals part me groups.is something that often appears on these.labels and gets talked about and so you.understand the group isn't about the.product itself but more about the.environment that's going to be in so.taking a look here at the traditional.and you us and.into groups it has to do with the.materials that are going to be exposed.to it right so as you see here you've.got a listing of various hazardous.chemicals these are easily recognisable.as hazardous explosive flammable.materials but when you're trying to.approve a product all of these different.materials ignite with different forces.or at different temperatures and they.have different characteristics so you.need to know what group your product or.is approved for or multiple groups your.product is approved for to work with.your particular environment a device.that has Group D approvals for propane.is not going to be appropriate in an.environment where you're dealing with.ethylene and so often times you will see.products that are labeled for example.for Group B C and D letting you know.that they've got all of these covered.another important note here is that.these are different than mine safety and.health administration approvals there.are approvals that are sometimes.required depending on the equipment to.work inside of Mines this is not that so.you may certainly be able to be used in.a mining facility but there's a separate.set of approvals and if you're in mining.you're familiar with those that's not.what we're referring to here this is.just what is the material that's going.to be present now if you're talking in a.national standard then you've got some.slightly different groups but the.concept is the same that your group is.going to want to match up to the.material that you have the test is.temperature class is something that.you'll see on these hazardous approved.has this area approved piece of.equipment that's a little different than.operating temperature range and so it's.worth taking a moment just to cover what.that means your temperature class is the.maximum ambient surface temperature the.device can reach so in other words it's.saying that the outside surface of this.device can reach this temperature.without igniting the atmosphere so you.can see how that might tie into what the.material is that it's being exposed to.because different materials will have.different ignition temperatures you.also takes into account things like what.the surface temperatures under dust.layers if you've got flammable dust.let's say you're working in a sugar mill.well it's important to know that well.hey if I have a foot of dust on top of.this thing that's a problem and so.they'll usually be an approval that will.cover up to a certain amount of dust you.know it'll say well look you can have an.inch of dust on this and you're still.okay but the agency is going to give.that temperature class assuming that.you're going to be under that layer of.has this material once they determine.the temperature class then they can test.things like the electronics inside to.find out what the ambient temperature.can be in order to prevent some kind of.ignition and this is a great example of.why you can't just put electronics.inside explosion-proof enclosures and.call it an approved product or call it a.fully approved system so that's an.important concept so let me just pause.there and say it one more time for you.you cannot take an explosion-proof.enclosure like the ones you see here in.the in the bottom right put electronics.in them and call it a fully approved.product just because the enclosure.itself is products like precision.digital's Protex max are a fully.approved product we've sent this out to.be tested by the agencies with all of.the electronics in them at full power.see what happens with the temperatures.if you just put a panel meter inside of.some kind of a mount and you stick it.inside of an empty box that is not a.fully approved product even though it's.going in an enclosure that has agency.approvals because no one has checked.things like for example how hot that.products going to get how hot is going.to get under a dust layer is it going to.get so hot it causes you a problem other.things go into that determination like.how much space is available inside of.the enclosure has and its gases to build.up so just be aware if you are just.putting power supplies inside of boxes.things like that that's great you have a.has this area proof box with a power.supply in it you do not have it has this.area approved power supply that should.still get looked at by someone from your.approving agency.some inspector should take a look at.that system and give it their approval.the alternative is you go out and you.get something like that protects Maxie.see there that has power supply's.integrated into it and is is a fully.approved product protection concepts are.things like explosion-proof not.incentive intrinsically safe purging.that's the method that you are using to.prevent the explosion and so the method.for example might be no arc Sparks or.hot surfaces that's going to get you an.approval for increased safety or not.incentive you can contain the explosion.and extinguish the flame before it has a.chance to spread outside and cause more.harm well that's your explosion proof or.if you look at your peon approvals for.attending let's see flame proof some.other ones like powder filled you can.limit the energy of spaces and surface.temps what that means is something that.is intrinsically safe and how does an.intrinsically safe product work well.it's saying if you install this.appropriately with the needed barriers.etc you don't have enough power in that.device to ignite anything I'm sure we've.all seen an extremely safe product in a.plastic housing versus an.explosion-proof product and in a big.beefy housing well the difference there.is the explosion proof product is going.to contain the explosion whereas a.interest if you save product is going to.say look I can't actually cause any.ignitions to begin with and then you've.got keeping flammable materials out of.the area altogether and that's where you.get your pressurized or your purge.panels as well as some other options.there as well and so it's important when.you're using this equipment you know the.protection method because it's going to.determine how you install it so we've.got for example this picture on the.right and and you can look at these.Protex max units and you can just tell.that they're explosion-proof they're in.a a large aluminum housing it's a solid.unit probably weighs about 17 pounds.and it's a NEMA 4x housing it's got a.fully approved product approval on it.for FMCSA 8x and OEE X and now we know.all that information tells you how you.have to install it so for example you'll.notice that they have approved plug.installations everywhere where we're not.using one of the conduit openings and.then you've got epoxy filled excuse me.I'm blanking on the word they're from it.but you've got a foxy field stops.essentially employment that thank you.epoxy field seals here so that you can.prevent the the explosion from traveling.down these lines if this were a.intrinsically safe installation while I.wouldn't need that however I may need to.for example have barriers and all of my.signals in and out versus a non.incentive installation where I may not.need the barriers because it's going to.have different divisions that it's rated.for so knowing that protection that lets.you know how you have to install these.now even in an installation like this if.I'm going from an explosion-proof device.down these wires to somewhere would say.an intrinsically safe transmitter well.now I'm going to need to have a barrier.integrated in there in order to meet the.intrinsically safe transmitters.requirements now it's worth noting there.that precision digital will soon be.launching a barrier that fits in the.bottom of these explosion proof boxes so.will save you the need to do yet another.installation step you'll be able to have.your explosion proof product with the.integrated barrier to go off to your.transmitter and be powered by the protex.max so essentially one product combine.that with your transmitter your solution.is done but you still need to be aware.of the fact that well this is this is.part of the intrinsically safe approval.therefore I need to make sure I get the.barrier this product is part of the.explosion from here approval therefore I.need my seals so it's important to.understand those protection concepts and.what they're trying to do luckily the.equipment's going to come with all of.the information you need to know so when.you get the instruction manual for one.of these PDA protection X units it will.tell you that you need to put seals.within let's say 16 inches of the cond.of an entry point.we'll be very we'll explain it to you.that's what all of these products have.in their manuals under all of that has.its area information it's worth taking a.look at and you do the installation we.talked a little about NEMA earlier came.with one of the questions NEMA ratings.and IP codes IP be more of a European.standard are really not a hazardous area.approval per se there on has this area.of products but they're not limited to.has this area products they're a safe.area equipment as well and they really.relate to ingress protection schemes or.its how are you going to keep out.material there's a whole suite of.different NEMA approvals the two that.you probably see most often are NEMA and.NEMA 4 and NEMA 4x NEMA 4 is an.indoor/outdoor protection that.essentially says that it prevents.against falling out falling objects.falling dirt blown dust etc ice and hose.directed water NEMA 4x has all of the.standard NEMA 4 protections but it also.adds a layer of level of corrosion.resistance so for example if you have a.plastic sealed box that's probably going.to be a NEMA 4x box it's good to go.outdoors it's going to be weather tight.it's not gonna let dusting but it's also.corrosion resistant because it's like if.you have a steel box that isn't painted.well now you're going to have just a.NEMA 4 product because salt water or.just exposure to the elements is going.to start potentially rusting off.components of that and so it's it's not.a fully corrosion or system product it's.worth noting that NEMA ratings are a.self-declaration that means that while.there is an organisation that publishes.the NEMA standards manufacturers.self-declared that this product is a.NEMA 4x product now hopefully like.precision digital does they send this.out to be verified by third-party.testing agencies but it is not a.requirement of the standard and.this testing is done by the has this.area testing agency so for example FM.will want to test to make sure the.product is new before before they say.its name before.there are plenty in clear that say NEMA.for that are not tested by FM at all.just safe area products some of you may.also have seen something called type 4x.and that is essentially you ELLs version.of NEMA 4x that is that is ul telling.you we have tested this product we have.decided it is NEMA 4x essentially but.we're going to put type 4x on there to.show you that it's a ul tested and.approved environmental code you saw.earlier the difference has this area.Agencies you're likely to see in the US.that there are a couple of different.versions many of those marks and so.here's some examples of what you might.see out there you have to be prepared to.see variants of these approvals and know.that there's reasons why all of these.changes are made sometimes they matter.to you sometimes they don't so for.example get the row here on the left.with FM well you've got FM approved.that's their standard mark so this is.just to let you know that it's an FM.approved product you're good to use it.in the United States.it's the Lee's that take FM approval.then you've got FM without the proof.means the same thing as the above.sometimes just due to printing.requirements on products or space you.can't fit the approved and so you don't.have to put it versus FM that has the C.in the US on there which is letting you.know that it's FM approving it to a.Canadian standard and to the u.s..standard so in that case that change is.actually relevant and you see.throughout the different marks so for.example here's your standard CSA logo or.you might see it without the registered.trademark just because someone can't.print that on their label it's too small.or the mark itself is too small or maybe.they're molding that into plastic and.that Lars and can work but then yeah at.a cna us on there and that's let's you.know okay those actually matter when you.start seeing things like sea and us now.you're talking countries and various.approvals that's really what you want to.look for so it really doesn't matter.that if you have a text or a text with.the actual word a text under it but it.makes a big difference if you've got ul.listed versus C ul us or just C ul.because now those C's in those US has.let you know you're talking countries.and you're talking with different.standards accepted in most countries ul.is also starting to move towards a new.looking mark and I'd love to talk to you.more about that but I'm certainly not an.expert on it but it seems like what.they're trying to do is combine a lot of.different approvals into one mark and so.it'll be interesting to see how that.gets rolled out but you may start to see.it so I figured I'd add it in here if.you see a mark that isn't on here you do.yourself a favor if you go and research.a little bit use Google it's a handy.resource for difficult you may see a UL.mark but it's gonna look like a u of the.back words are on there well that's a ul.recognized component that is a different.item than seeing something that's fully.ul listed and so if you find yourself.working with equipment like that look it.up find out find out what it's approved.for ul you can you can go on their.website you can type in the file number.it'll tell you all about that product.where you can use it and what good it is.so if you see things you're not familiar.with don't take them for granted the.little research call up your Gilson.sales get talk to people about what it.might mean and when all of that is said.and done when all of those things have.been determined by the agencies and they.start giving you marks then you get a.label that looks like this.which is a whole bunch of alphabet soup.that will hopefully mean a little bit.more to you when we're done here today.and so I wanted to break it down a.little bit so you can find what matters.you when you're looking at a label like.this this is an actual label from one of.those PDA explosion-proof products that.we saw earlier those Protex maxes and.the whole top part of this label is.really just about who the manufacturer.is where we're located things that the.agencies require us to put on their.model numbers and serial numbers you've.got the power requirements on there.that's pretty straightforward.jumping to the bottom you've got agency.required warnings things that they're.going to tell the manufacturer they have.to put on there that you want to know so.well I think it would be obvious but you.can't open when an explosive atmospheres.present this is an explosion-proof.product remember you can unscrew that.lid and well you just destroyed your.protection method you've got to have.those conduit seals we looked at within.18 inches of the enclosure talking about.temperatures wiring the compartment may.reach 90 degrees and ambient of 65 so.yeah make sure you use cables that are.appropriate and CSA wants to make sure.you derive power from Class D power.supply all fairly straightforward then.in the middle of the label you've got.all the other information that we talked.about and hopefully when you look at a.product like this the manufacturers.grouped it up by symbol so you can sort.of look to the approvals that you want.so for example if we were interested in.FM I could look here on the left I could.see that well all the information over.here is for European approvals and I.know that because here's my here's my a.text mark here's my c e mark which again.all has to do with europe other marks.here really are just European related.things and so that is all just for a.text approvals and you can break that.down and go through it but you can see.it on the screen and get a sense of what.it means as far as the groups and zones.etc that are appropriate for 8x over on.the right you've got your FM and your.CSA so now we know we're getting close.these are the kinds of approvals that.we're most interested in here if FM is.our concern if we know we want to go get.an FM explosion proof product so now.I've got enclosure type 4x and ip66 all.right so there's that type 4x I was.talking about so I.know that we're talking about a NEMA 4x.product that has been tested to be NEMA.4x they also put the IP rating on there.I didn't focus too much on IP though.just a quick note about that.ip66 IP 65 one of the common questions.we get is is it the equivalent of NEMA.4x but fortunately the like many.slightly different standards they're not.exactly equivalent so if you have a.requirement for a NEMA 4 you know we'll.a IP 65 or an IP 66 product do it maybe.it depends on what they want the NEMA.for a NEMA 4x requirement for you know.IP 65 ip66 have nothing to do with.corrosion resistance for example like IP.I'm sorry like NEMA 4x does IP 65 from.just my personal experience having.watched some of the testing I don't.think I'd be 65 is quite as good as NEMA.4 but I fee 66 might actually be a.little better so they're not exact but.they are related so anyways I know if.I'm I'm looking for FM I'm probably.interested in something that's named a.full or or nuna 4x.there we are I know I'm a type 4x so.I've got that covered then you've got.your different classes and divisions now.this product is approved for multiple.classes and divisions so I'm good for.class 1 2 or 3 so I know that I'm good.for gases Dusk's gases dusts or.particles and I know that I'm good for.division 1 which is my worst case.scenario all right that's where I'm.going to have plant it'll present on a.regular basis it's it's expected that.I'm going to have has asthma.they've tested it for two different.temperature codes.I've got t5 and t6 on there which.translated in the fact that I have.multiple different operating temperature.ranges so you'll see there I've got my.t6 temperature range where I'm good all.the way up to sixty degrees for the end.up my t5 temperature range where I'm.good up to 65 and so often.spec for this material say it's got you.b85 product for example if I know that.it's got to be a t5 code then I know I'm.good up to 65 degree C ambient.environment temperature then I've got my.groups which are b c d e f g so if i.know that i'm looking for a gas that.falls under my c group well I'm good for.class 1 division 1 so I'm good for that.gas to be present I know that if it's a.gas that's in the C group I've got that.group covered and I've got my F M mark.on there so I know that I've got if I'm.approval for that if I want to be sure.about that I can actually go and verify.I've got the F M certificate number on.there which means I can go look up this.certificate either with a family I can.request it from the company and say ok I.want to see the certificate that F M.issued it actually shows me this.approval and verify that it's actually.correct.now you also notice that F M does have.the the zone information on there so if.you were a company that was more.interested in zones more likely you.might be looking for 8x or IEC x but.let's say you wanted zones and you.wanted FM zones we haven't approved with.FM zones and so you see some of that.information down there and that's the.kind of frame you see you see class 1.zone 1 and then you see a little extra.information on there like this.AE X D - C GB which is a breakdown of.the enclosure or the protection method.rather combined with the zones how it.gets that protection method accomplished.and the types of gases and dusts you'll.see that I'll translate it down here.where if I wanted sones we've got all.that information on the label as well so.one of the reasons a label like this.looks like such a mess is because you've.got four different agency approvals on.here you've got 8x and IEC you've got FM.and CSA you've got to cover zones and.divisions you've got to cover all your.different zone are all your different.divisions which means you've got to have.all your different groups and it's a lot.of information to try to get across to.someone some of.may matter to someone which may not but.that's why when you look at it there's.so much there and the key to really.understanding your products is to be.able to look at a label like this find.the parts of the matter to you and know.what they're trying to get across.so hopefully seeing in a breakdown like.this makes it a little bit more.manageable when you try to look at that.Product Approval or even when they're.listed on a specification sheet and.digest it a little bit easier might.leave you wondering alright what kind of.equipment or protection method do I need.and we talked a lot about that during.this webinar so far and so my personal.advice is usually you're going to be.looking at either and should to be safe.or not incentive equipment or.explosion-proof certainly there are.there are purged panels and such out.there but if you're talking about a.standalone piece of equipment those are.the protection methods you're likely to.see you're intrinsically safe or not.incentive equipment it's got some pluses.and minuses as one might expect so these.are low-power devices they're designed.not to have enough power in them to.cause an ignition which means limits.what the devices are capable of so.you're gonna see LCD displays which may.be backlit you know the ones from.precision digital will be but oftentimes.they're not and that low-power.electronics limits the kind of outputs.and control options you've got so you.might have transistor outputs which you.could send to a PLC but you're not going.to use to turn on a piece of equipment.like an external relay we do have.products with some solid-state relays.that we designed ourselves into them and.got approval on so in something like.this panel meter that you see on the.left there you can actually get.solid-state relays to be able to do.things like pump control on an approved.device but but that's pretty rare you.usually won't see that they will often.be loop powered if they're not loop.powered they'll at best be low voltage.DC powered that's fine if you've got.enough power and you're enough voltage.drop and you look to run these devices.they tend to be lower cost because.you're not talking about a lumen I'm.housing around these and because they.have limited electronics capabilities.they just tend to be lower cost.and you can get them as not incentive.which is a nice factor because it avoids.the barrier requirements for give to.areas and intrinsically safe product is.designed to work with a barrier so.something that is solely intrinsically.safe is going to need that barrier even.in a div to area versus a properly.approved non incentive device that.should be good for the div to area.without a barrier so something to keep.in mind now your explosion-proof devices.those are where you're gonna find your.bright LEDs you're really bright back.lights they're gonna have really no.power requirements sort of most basics.of what you need to worry about for heat.rise so you can fit all kinds of.features into these that's how you're.going to get your mechanical relays your.powered 4 to 20 mili-amp outputs if you.want Modbus you're gonna find it on.explosion-proof devices precision.digital's will offer 24 volt power.supply supposed to run your 4 to 20.mili-amp outputs but also to run your.transmitters if you'd like something.that's line powered so let's say I have.120 volts coming into my area I don't.have access to 24 volts easily well.great you can get a line power at high.voltage device it'll off for 24 volt.output as part of it you can use that to.power up your transmitter and a lot of.people just like working with.explosion-proof equipment because of its.inherent ruggedness that could be a.choice they're making because they want.to have really rugged solid equipment in.there has this area or sometimes we.quite honestly see people buying it just.because they want that rugged housing.even when it's a safe area but you can.see where you know a sealed field mount.box and then they introduce to be safe.or not the same item certainly works but.it's a plastic housing it's not going to.be as rugged as something in a large.explosion proof housing I mean the thing.is designed to contain an explosion it's.going to take a beating from the people.in your facility.things to consider when you're choosing.one over the other confirming of the.approvals you need for your class.division group temperature etc there are.plenty of products out there that unlike.the one we looked at from precision.digital don't have all the worldwide.approval marks on them you might not get.all those options you might have.equipment that only has a tax well geez.is that gonna work for you that's a.question you should decide before you.commit to that product oftentimes.facilities have preferred protection.methods you may know which one you like.you may say you know we only do.explosion-proof but we only do.intrinsically safe or not in send it for.example so so know that advanced you.know don't don't looking at something.that's explosion-proof if you know that.you're gonna want to install an iOS.device instead know what marks are.acceptable for you is a C as a CSA us.approval sufficient for you or not thank.you get a product that's manufacturing.Canada may be your only choice you know.is a again it's an 8 X approval ok for.you well maybe not consider your input.output requirements that you're gonna.need for the rest your system you know.I'm talking about sort of displaying.control equipment here but maybe you.know you're gonna need certain pumps or.certain valves that it needs to interact.with the PLC and you may find out that.you have IO requirements that require.you to use something explosion-proof in.order to get the kind of output you need.know what you're mounting and location.preference are know do you know you want.something in a field mount box would.that be more convenient do you want it.somewhere where you have a really rugged.enclosure is there space limitation.those are all good things to know.because it's gonna the minute you make a.protection method decision it's going to.limit your sizes your methods of.mounting it there and know what you and.the people at your plant good at you.know stick with technologies if you can.that you're familiar with how to work.with this is after all a safety choice.and so don't go trying things that are.too new that you are not comfortable.with you know always be sure that you're.doing it the correct way because you.just can't afford mistakes with this.stuff if you have questions find.somebody to ask don't make assumptions.with this kind of equipment.once you make that decision what might.that look like you know what is it with.some real world examples so here you'll.see three different versions of just for.a simple application example a tank.level display I might get to choose from.on my left I've got my intrinsically.safe and non incentive panel meter the.PD 6600 well the price is certainly.great right it starts at 329 I'm glad to.see that but I've limited myself to a.loop powered device it's got a low.voltage drop with it's nice but I know.I'm talking an LCD and a little powered.device I've got 8 X I see xu l and c UL.listings which is gonna be good so I was.like I'm not required to stick with FM.I've got ul and c UL on here um most.likely you know I'm gonna need UL in.this case and so that's fine you'll not.like don't have FM though I've got a.NEMA 4x ip65 front so I've got to.consider how I'm going to mount this.panel meter if I go that road and while.I've got free PC based programming.software through USB port on the side.it's a low powered device so it doesn't.have access to our having Modbus so if I.was hoping to do some Mama's.communication I can't do that here and.mostly I'm limited to open collector.outputs or pass it for 220 outs.I do have solid-state relays available.on this particular unit from precision.digital I wanted something explosion.proof I've got a very close equivalent.to that panel meter available now we're.putting it inside of a modern sleek.rugged explosion proof housing so you'll.see that price goes up pretty.significantly but now I've got those.explosion proof approvals right I'm an.explosion-proof ip68 NEMA 4x enclosure.in there it also gets me access to that.fm approval I needed if I know my.occasions gonna require a lot of.capability well then I'm gonna go with.the PD 8 6,000 meter now I can get it.lined powered so if all I have is high.voltage I'm fine I can power it off 120.a see I've got sunlight-readable LEDs.I've got my FM approval on there if I.know I'm going to be using it to run all.kinds of equipment now I can get off the.4 form C relays I can get isolated power.supplies I can get powered 420 milliamp.outputs I can your digital i/o available.for it it comes with Modbus if that was.something I wanted to connect to I've.still got my programming software but.the price is going to be higher and so.it's a nice example to look at and.consider what impact all those choices.will have on what kind of equipment you.choose thing what kind of marks you want.what the area requirements are what the.application requirements are is going to.make sure you help get the right device.when you're trying to specify this.equipment so with that I know we're.reaching the lid on timing or having to.take any of the questions we may have.yep we got a few here first one is could.you expound a bit on CSA /ul agreements.and how they relate to reciprocity in.the u.s. ratings per and EC sure.so CSA and you will have essentially.signed agreements with each other that.allow them to share testing information.and compare their standards so that ul.is testing 2 CSA standards and CSA is.testing ul standards when they're.getting sort of into their each other's.traditional backyard you know.traditional ul was US and CSA was Canada.so specifically I guess what you're.asking is is can I use a product with a.CSA u.s. mark in somewhere that most.likely you're used to code saying you've.got to use something with ul mark and.unfortunately I can't just say something.as simple as yes you can go ahead and do.that and the reason why is because the.standards that a ul AC ul product is.going to mark with a ul product with.Canadian approval so it was gonna say C.ul on it that product is going to likely.have to do with wait I'm sorry let me.turn that around a US CSA product is.what you're probably talking about which.is a CSA marked product with u.s..approvals on it it's probably gonna have.to do with more more modern standardized.harmonized approvals like so.etc and so you are unfortunately still.gonna have to do some research to see if.that's acceptable for you in your.facility with your inspectors with your.company you can't you I don't think you.just want to jump to the conclusion that.okay well this product that had ul on it.had that's in such a class division on.there now I'm just gonna bring in this.product that has CSA us on it I wouldn't.jump immediately to that conclusion I.would do a little bit more first if you.great if I can tell you to do that but I.think you'd do yourself a favor to dig.in a little bit with your with your.local authorities so to speak second one.I have here is how does the proximity to.a known venting point with natural gas.effect that division classification are.there set distances from these points.where you can get to class div - from.tip 1 so there's no specific set.distance set by the agencies it is up to.facilities essentially to determine and.then get approved what areas are div 1.div 2 related to you know how close for.example to event they are there are.standards out there that are published.by all sorts of third parties that will.recommend well this is how far you can.be to say event but a lot can come into.play it is this an outdoor let's say.it's like a tank with a vent on it is an.outdoor tank an indoor tank are there.special venting air handlers that will.take that gas out of there if not well.now this whole area might be because I'm.building up the gases a lot can go into.play there it's not something as simple.as well if I'm 5 feet let's stay away.from that vent I know I'm good the the.whole environment around that vent is.going to determine that distance and how.you do that gets fairly complicated if.you if you want to connect with us after.the webinar we might be able to find.some references to point you at but it's.not a simple determination like I can.just say well 10 feet from the venture.good unfortunately like a lot of things.and then it has this area world it is.more complicated than that.next one I have will the exterior of the.device indicate the is barrier as.contained within the device I'm sorry so.if you are referring to the reference I.made earlier about precision digital's.Protex max and the fact that soon will.be coming out with barriers that will be.put in the back of that enclosure no the.exterior the product is just going to.indicate the protex max information the.barrier itself is a separate product.accessory and so while it will have its.own labels and you could certainly get a.stainless-steel tag to put on there that.will tell you that it's not going to be.purchased as a single package where the.exterior of the box is going to contain.that information that sort of.information is great for stainless steel.tacks we offer those ourselves so I've.seen all sorts of information put on.those in the past and that and that is a.nice piece of information to put on.there well I'll leave it at that it's a.nice piece of information that gone.there it's not something you want to.mark on there I suggest that you do do.something like a stainless steel tag.versus just putting some kind of label.on there just you have access to it but.the answer to your question essentially.is no they won't have the marking on the.outside by default okay I'll ask the.other customer question then first and.then I'll ask the Gilson guys question.cust customer asked if a product is.approved for class 1 div 1 does that.mean is acceptable acceptable for class.1 div 2 also in most cases yes you'll.want to make sure that your local.inspectors so to speak or that your.company has a policy on that but.generally yes you're going to be able to.do that ok and last two the first one is.on a two-wire device if I use an is.barrier does that me class 1 div 1.requirements and that also has a.statement in there saying explain that.the transmitter must be is as some.devices like a capacitor can store.energy and thereby cause a spark.so the transmitter must also be is.certified and one must look at the.entity approvals of the barrier and a.transmitter to be in compliance short so.the core question they are on a two wire.device if I use an ice barrier does it.have any class when different.requirements and the answer there's not.all place certainly if you do meet class.1 div 1 requirements then you're.probably gonna be a two-wire advice but.not all to our device will meet and what.I mean by that is first you need to make.sure that your to our device so let's.say I have a 2 wire transmitter that I'm.talking about here I need to make sure.that transmitter has a hazardous area.approval of its own assuming that it.does and it's a 2 wire device it's going.to be a class 1 div 1 intrinsically safe.transfer along with that approval is.going to come a set of entity parameters.in other words it's going to tell the.purchaser it's gonna tell you how much.capacitance is in this product how much.inductance is in this product because.remember that an intrinsically safe.device is protected by limiting energy.available to cause an explosion so if.you've got you've got too much of that.that's a problem you know a capacitor.space Theory if you add too much.capacitance then you're storing that.energy then to get the signal through to.the transmitter you're gonna have to go.through a barrier and what those entity.parameters are used for is to compare.the entity parameters of your.transmitter to the entity parameters of.your barrier to make sure that your.barrier handle the entity parameters of.the transmitter and so you're going to.want to make sure that your barrier and.your transmitter have compatible sets of.entity parameters work together the last.one is how to comply with non incentive.installations requirements for div 2.areas so the high level answer that.question is the the dip tube products.going to tell you how to comply with.that they're likely going to have a.separate control.that will tell you anything you need to.know about installing that most likely.if you're installing a give tube product.in the debut area it's going to.essentially be like wiring up any other.to wire device for example precision.digital has ones that you as long as you.correctly wiry other thing you don't.have to go through a barrier because.you're in a div true area it's assuming.that for there to be explosive material.present you've already got a problem.and so it slightly relaxes the.requirements that say and ensures every.safe product might have to face like.barriers I think something really.important to point out when you're.talking about give two is you want to.make sure you have a non incentive to.approved product do not just take an.intrinsically safe product install it in.the div to area and don't attach a.barrier you've got to make sure you have.the appropriate approvals to do that and.those are all the questions we have yep.well great thank you very much everybody.I appreciate you all sticking with us.hopefully you found it very informative.let me personally thank Gilson for.putting this together we have a lot of.information at precision digital we'd.love to share with people and it was.very nice that Gilson to put that on so.thank you everybody kills him for.putting.

How do I fill out the IT-2104 form if I live in NJ?

Do you work only in NY? Married? Kids? If your w-2 shows NY state withholding on your taxes, fill out a non-resident NY tax return which is fairly simple. If it doesn't, you don't fill out NY at all. If it shows out NYC withholding you enter that as well on the same forms. Then you would fill out your NJ returns as well with any withholding for NJ. Make sure to put any taxes paid to other states on your reciprocal states (nj paid, on NY return and vice versa)

Why do ex-employers refuse to fill out the VA form 21-4192 for a vet?

Some do, some don't. Obviously, if you didn't part on good terms it's not likely to happen. If you were a temp or part-time worker they may not have bothered keeping your records. The best thing veterans can do is hand carry the form to their former employer, if practical.

How do you know if you need to fill out a 1099 form?

It can also be that he used the wrong form and will still be deducting taxes as he should be. Using the wrong form and doing the right thing isnt exactly a federal offense

How many people fill out Form 1099 each year?

There are a few different ways of estimating the numbers and thinking about this question. Data from the most recent years are not available—at least not from a reliable source with rigorous methodology—but here is what I can tell you: The most popular type of 1099 is Form 1099-MISC—the form used to report non-employee income including those for self-employed independent contractors (as well as various other types of “miscellaneous” income) Since 2015, there have been just under 16 million self-employed workers (including incorporated and unincorporated contractor businesses). And the data from the BLS seems to suggest this number has been largely consistent from one year to the next: Table A-9. Selected employment indicators Now, the total number of 1099-MISC forms has been inching up each year—along with W-2 form filings—and may have surpassed 100 million filing forms. RE: Evaluating the Growth of the 1099 Workforce But this data only goes to 2014 because, again, it’s hard to find reliable data from recent tax years. In terms of the total number of Form 1099s, you’d have to include Interest and Dividend 1099 forms, real estate and rental income, health and education savings accounts, retirement accounts, etc. I’m sure the total number of all 1099 forms surely ranges in the hundreds of millions. Finally, not everybody who is supposed to get a 1099 form gets one. So if you’re asking about the total number of freelancers, the estimates range from about 7.6 million people who primarily rely on self-employed 1099 income and 53 million people who have some type of supplemental income. If you’re someone who’s responsible for filing Form 1099s to the IRS and payee/recipients, I recommend Advanced Micro Solutions for most small-to-medium accounting service needs. It’s basic but very intuitive and cheap. $79 1099 Software Filer & W2 Software for Small Businesses

How do I fill out Address Line 1 on an Online Form?

Your question is unclear. That said …. Generally, Address Line 1 refers to the house/building number and the street on which it is located, and may include an apartment/suite/unit number, though that can also be on Line 2. (Line 3 is typically the city, country and postal/ZIP code.)
