Definition: type of protection in which the parts capable of igniting an explosive gas atmosphere are fixed in position and completely surrounded by filling material to prevent the ignition of an external explosive atmosphere

NOTE – The type of protection may not prevent the surrounding explosive atmosphere from penetrating into the apparatus and components and being ignited by the circuits. However, due to the small free volumes in the filling material and due to the quenching of a flame which may propagate through the paths in the filling material, an external explosion is prevented.
