4/2 Presentation Modicon M580 automation platform Treatment for severe environments Ruggedized modules Presentation Protective treatment of Modicon M580 automation platform The Modicon M580 automation platform complies with TC treatment requirements ( T reatment for all C limates). It is designed as standard to operate in temperatures of 0 to +60 C /32 to 140 F. For installations in industrial production workshops or environments corresponding to TH ( T reatment for H ot and humid environments), devices should be housed in enclosures providing at least IP 54 protection as specified by standard IEC/EN 60529, or an equivalent level of protection according to NEMA 250. The Modicon M580 automation platform offers IP 20 degree of protection (1) . It can therefore be installed without an enclosure in restricted access areas that do not exceed pollution level 2 (control room with no dust-producing machinery or activity). Pollution level 2 does not take account of harsher environments, such as those where the air is polluted with dust, fumes, corrosive or radioactive particles, vapors or salts, molds, insects, etc. Treatment for more severe environments If the Modicon M580 automation platform has to be used in more severe environments or is required to start and operate in an extended temperature range, from -25 C to +70 C/ -13 F to +158 F , the ruggedized" offer features industrially hardened processor modules, X-bus and X-bus + Ethernet racks, rack expansion modules, and communication modules that have a protective coating on their circuit boards. Note : Capable of starting within an extended temperature range (from -25 C to +70 C/ -13 F to +158 F , a single-rack configuration is also able to operate at extremely low temperatures (to -40 C/-40 F ) if placed in an appropriate enclosure. Please consult our Customer Care Center. This treatment increases the isolation capability of the circuit boards and their resistance to: b Condensation b Dusty atmospheres (conducting foreign particles) b Chemical corrosion, in particular during use in sulfurous atmospheres (oil refinery, purification plant, etc.) or atmospheres containing halogens (chlorine, etc.) This protection, combined with appropriate installation and maintenance, enables Modicon M580 automation products to be used in the following environments: Harsh chemical environments: v IEC/EN 60721-3-3 class 3C3: - 14 days; 25 C /77 F relative humidity 75% - Concentrations (mm 3 /m 3 ): H 2 S: 2100/SO 2 : 1850/Cl 2 : 100 v ISA S71.04 classes G1 to G3: - 14 days; 25 C /77 F relative humidity 75% - Concentrations (mm 3 /m 3 ): H 2 S: 50/SO 2 : 300/Cl 2 : 10/NO 2 : 1250 v IEC/EN 60068-2-52 salt mist, Kb test severity level 2: - 3 x 24-hour cycles - 5% NaCI - 40 C/ 104 F relative humidity 93% Extreme climatic environments: v Temperatures from -25 to + 70 C /-13 to 158 F v Relative humidity levels: - up to 93% from -25 C/ -13 F to +60 C/ 140 F - up to 95% from -25 C/ -13 F to +55 C/ 131 F v Formation of ice v Altitudes from 0 to 5,000 m /0 to 16,404 ft (1) Each slot in a BMXXBP0 p 00H, BMEXBP0 p 00H, or BMXXBE1000H rack is equipped as standard with a protective cover that should only be removed when inserting a module. If any covers are subsequently misplaced, replacements can be ordered under reference BMXXEM010 (sold in lots of 5).
