Thanks for the informative article (was not familiar with this requirement, but will keep this in mind in the future).

UL 1604 is obsolete and has been superceded by ANSI/ISA 12.12.01.  The end of life date for 1604 was July 31, 2012.  That being said, this is a good overview of the requirements for either standard.  Anyone working with this type of product should also get familiar with the IEC 60079 series standards.  They define the hazardous locations (known as explosive atmospheres or ATEX) requirements for europe.  IEC60079-0 describes the basic requirements, and the others describe varios protection methods.

Thanks for the primer, Jane. We don't hear much about UL 1604, but it sounds like a rating that more engineers -- mechanical and electrical -- should be familiar with.

More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
As additive manufacturing (including 3D printing) becomes increasingly popular among businesses as a quick and easy solution to creating and evaluating prototypes and end-use products, the debate about whether to outsource production or to purchase equipment for in-house use is at the forefront of industry discussions.
With increasing terrorist threats overseas, organizations are thinking about how best to defend themselves here and abroad. Engineering can play a role, especially when it comes to putting a barrier between yourself and the bad guys.
Time to market is everything, but at the same time, you can’t sacrifice quality for speed. That’s where additive manufacturing comes into play.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
