One major change (indicated as per editorial): Throughout document, “electrical equipment” replaced by “equipment” where appropriate.
Does it mean IEC 60079-0:2017 Explosive atmospheres – Part 0: Equipment – General requirements shall cover all equipments both electrical and non electrical to be installed potential hazardous environment?
Still early to ask, but if yes it goes a good direction.
