I'm hoping a few of the more experienced safety code fellows can lend some insight here. My company and I are trying to get an understanding of what the cost will be for us to get approval from ATEX, FM, CE, UL, and CSA for an electro-mechanical device to be used in an explosive environment. By explosive, I am talking about an environment where there is high potential in the air, like a powder coating environment where the charges can reach upwards of 150 kilovolts. Before we proceed with our designs, it's important that we understand what kind of finanical burden there will be to gain some of these approvals.
Any help appreciated. Rough dollar amounts, links, suggestions, books to read up on this, etc.
