Title : BCS-032 Non-Electrical Design Course

This unique 3 day course specifically addresses the knowledge requirements for Non-Electrical equipment and Assemblies with regard to risk assessment and certification to ISO 80079-36 and 37 (and current equivalent ATEX Standards). It is aimed at designers or project engineers responsible for design compliance or certification of non-electrical equipment or assemblies.


  • Requirements for ATEX and IECEx non-electrical equipment and assemblies
  • Quality System Requirements (ATEX and IECEx) for equipment manufacture and unit verification.
  • Relationship with CE marking (Pressure Equipment and Machinery Directives)
  • Overview of Explosive Atmosphere and coding systems
  • Fundamentals of Risk Assessment, FMEA and FTA
  • EN1127-1 and identifying ignition hazards
  • Internal explosive atmospheres (machinery directive and zoning)
  • ISO 80079-36 in detail and the relationship with IEC60079-0
  • Defining and quantifying failure likelihood
  • Failure examples for ATEX and IECEx Non-Electrical
  • Performing ignition risk assessments (worked examples)
  • Assessment of single impact sparks (calculations)
  • Ingress Protection and mechanical testing
  • Dealing with connected electrical equipment (assemblies) and IEC60079-14
  • ISO 80079-37 in detail
  • Understanding Construction Safety
  • Loading and L10 Bearing Calculations (examples and working)
  • Calculation of rotary speeds and impacts (examples and working)
  • Moving parts assessment (conversion of RPM, m/s, angular velocity etc.)
  • Electrostatic (requirements, reduction method and tests)
  • Using control of ignition sources (SIL and safety systems)
  • Using Liquid Immersion
  • Documentation, Reports, Files and Certificates

Course Features:

  • 3 day course conducted at training providers site (or onsite at additional cost)
  • 2 hour written exam, with calculations, data sheets for bearings analysis, lubrication analysis etc.
  • Successful Candidates will be issued with a ‘Certificate of Competence’ in the design of ATEX and IEC non-electrical equipment and assemblies by the training provider.
