Intrinsic Safety Assessment, EN60079-25 and non-linear Power Supply

Intrinsic Safety Assessment, EN60079-25 and non-linear Power Supply

(OP)
I wounder if somebody can shade some light on how to determine whether a power source is linear or non-linear according to EN 60079-25. Many Thanks  

RE: Intrinsic Safety Assessment, EN60079-25 and non-linear Power Supply

A non-linear power supply draws power in pulses, like a switching supply.

That's certainly a novel view since most Linear supplies do that.

Check the standard.

In the standard it looks more the term is used with regard to the relationship between current and voltage following an ohmic relationship, i.e. an unregulated source which could be modelled as an ideal cell with a series resistance.

Keith,

I think the intent was PWM versus 60Hz sine...

I'll never know because I'm not giving the thieves 2oo bucks for a standard.

Ha-ha, yeah it's pretty steep isn't it, especially for a set of standards which are all but mandatory to comply with the ATEX Directive.
