Hello,

I am looking for some advice on the installation of Exi certified junction/terminal boxes in a hazardous area and the glands that should be used.
My understanding is that the junction boxes should be treated as any other piece of 'Exi' certified equipment and the glands only need to be certified if the equipment is house within a certified enclosure (ie Exe glands for Exe enclosure) and there for noncertified entry devices that meet other requirement of IP rating etc would be suitable.
I am getting a lot of mixed opinions on this and I am looking for clarification. I have looked through the BS EN 60079-0 and -11 but I find myself reading the same thing over and over again.
Any help or point in the right direction would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Steven

My advice is make sure everything you use in the zone is certificated to at least the minimum level you need for that zone including glands. And that you are able to print of the certs from the manufactures website . Because without the certificates your not pass inspection.
