Explosion-proof audible and visual sign PGSK-TABLO are applied at the facilities of chemical, oil-and-gas producing, oil-and-gas processing and shipbuilding industry. Explosion-proof audible and visual sign PGSK-TABLO is used for issuing light and sound alarm signals indoors, in presence of explosive and combustible gases in order to regulate a person‘s behavior in emergency situations, for enabling issuing audible and visual (text or pictogram) emergency signals in fire alarm systems and automatic fire suppression systems in combination with control devices. Text or pictogram and backlighting color are defined by the customer.
Scope of application - hazardous indoor and outdoor areas in accordance with explosion protection marking, GOST 30852.13-2002 (IEC 60079-14:1996) that regulates application of electrical equipment in hazardous areas, dangerous production facilities of I, II, III, IV hazard classes under supervision of Rostekhnadzor and national supervisory bodies of the CU and the CIS countries.

According to GOST R IEC 60073-2000, sound signals may be applied in cases when:
– it is required to draw an operator‘s attention;
– coded information will be short, simple and transient;
– the information requires immediate or time-dependent answer;
– application of visual signal is limited;
– the situation is critical and it requires additional or redundant information.
The sound signal may consist of pure or complex tones (not more than 5 signals). The sound signal must be audible and easily recognized by operators and people in the set area of signal reception and at set background noise conditions. Signals must be different from the emergency signal, as per ISO 8201 part 7.
Sound signals of different types must be clearly distinguishable from each other. Limited audibility of signals must be also taken into account in cases, when employees wear protective devices or earphones, as well as people with hearing impairment.
General rules of identification of sound signals when coding the information:
To prevent sound overpressure of operators, it is required to use minimum amount of sounds of different kind in this application.
Intermittent sound signal may be used in some particular cases (for example, in case of change of dangerous or transient state to a safe state).
Sound signals should not be applied in case of safe state (silence).
