8/10 Modicon Quantum automation platform Standards, certifications and environmental conditions Standards and certifications Modicon Quantum PLCs have been developed to comply with the main national and international standards relating to electronic equipment for industrial automation systems. b Requirements specific to PLCs: functional characteristics, immunity, resistance, safety, etc: IEC/EN 61131-2, CSA 22.2 No. 142, UL 508 b Merchant navy requirements from the main international bodies: ABS, BV, DNV, GL, LR, RINA, etc b Compliance with European Directives: v Low voltage: 2006/95/EC v Electromagnetic compatibility: 2004/108/EC b Electrical characteristics and self-extinguishing capacity of insulating materials: UL 746C, UL 94 b Hazardous areas: v CSA 22.2 No. 213, Class I, Division 2, groups A, B, C and D v FM 3610, Class I, Division 2, groups A, B, C and D b Specific requirements for safety CPUs and modules: v IEC 61508 v IEC 62021 Characteristics Operating conditions and requirements relating to the environment Temperature Operation C 0...+60 (IEC/EN 61131-2: +5...+55) (1) StorageC -40...+85 Relative humidity Operation % 095 non-condensing Storage % 095 non-condensing (according to IEC 61131-2) at 60C (140F) Altitude m 05000 max. during operation. For altitudes > 2000 m, the max. temperature of 60C must be reduced by 6C for each additional 1000 m Protective treatment of Modicon Quantum PLCs Modicon Quantum PLCs comply with TC (Treatment for all Climates) treatment requirements. For installations in industrial production workshops or environments that correspond to TH (Treatment for hot and Humid environments) treatment, the PLCs must be housed in enclosures providing at least IP 54 protection as specified by IEC 60664 and NF C 20 040. These PLCs themselves have an IP 20 protection index (2) . They can therefore be installed without an enclosure in reserved 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 more severe environments, such as those where the air is polluted with dust, fumes, corrosive or radioactive particles, vapours or salts, moulds, insects, etc. (1) TSXP570244/104/154M and TSXP57454/4634/554/5634M CPUs: 0+57C (or 0+67C with TSXFAN fan modules) when certain I/O modules are mounted in the slot next to the above-mentioned CPUs. (2) If a slot is not occupied by a module, it must be fitted with a protective cover TSXRKA02 . Standards and certifications 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
