This classification system provides users and manufacturers of electronic hardware with a means of specifying the type and concentration of airborne contaminants to which a specified piece of electronic hardware stanndard be exposed. Performance degradation can occur rapidly or over many years, depending on the particular gas combinations and concentration levels present at a site. So, I want to give thanks to the many people of the ISA who work on securing the future of the organization just as the original founders had.

Select One Alexandria Egypt Nigeria. Explanation of contaminant severity levels There is a broad distribution of contaminant concentrations and reactivity levels existing within industries using process measurement and control equipment, information technology ITtelecommunications, networking and data center equipment, and electronic office equipment.

ISA Environmental Classifications: Changes and New Requirements

The implementation of s771.04 manufacturing in affected essentially all electronic products, and some of the more common materials used as replacements, and more specifically silver and silver alloys, were particularly more sensitive to common atmospheric pollutants than lead-based materials.

ISA awarded me a scholarship to help fund my education. A typical failure mechanism of electronic systems in polluted environments is the reaction of atmospheric sulfur with exposed metals — particularly copper and silver.

Sorry, this item can only be purchased by current members.

Are you sure you want to place a backorder for this item? The International Society of Automation www. Changes and New Requirements. Direct gas monitoring may provide short-term estimates of pollutant levels for specific sites.

ISA members have access to dozens of unique benefits. These metals have been selected as the coupon materials because issa exist that correlates copper and silver film formation with stamdard corrosive environments and they have standagd to be particularly useful for environmental characterization. The purpose of the contaminant classes is to define environments on the basis of corrosion rate of specially prepared and tested copper and silver samples.


All RoHS-compliant electronic equipment and devices are more sensitive to syandard conditions than their pre-RoHS versions. The solid triangle data points are for data centers with no known corrosion-related hardware failures.

In developing this standard, the committee goals included:. Reactivity monitoring Two methods have been used for environmental characterization. Because of this, more and more manufacturers have become very aggressive by placing the onus on their customers to provide proof that they are meeting all of their product warranty requirements, shandard establishing and maintaining an ISA Class G1 environment.

Manufacturers of industrial process control equipment have used ISA Would you like to The classification of reactive environments is shown in the table below. However, the same had not been the case for s71.004 systems used in non-industrial settings. Environmental classifications have been established in the standard according to the type of contaminant, and within each classification, severity levels have also been established.

The reverse, however, is not necessarily true. These metals are found in printed circuit board PCB traces, integrated circuit IC leads and device terminations. The update also included a description of a landmark ASHRAE data center study where Purafil CCCs were used stnadard a two-year study in data centers with and without corrosion-related hardware failures to establish the G1 reactivity level for silver.

Contact Purafil to find out how we can assist you with all of your environmental compliance requirements; from assessment with CCCs, to establishing a contaminant control strategy, to continuous monitoring with the Lsa Smart to assure warranty compliance.

The number and types of corrosion failures have increased dramatically around the world in locations with high pollution levels, and the most common failures were with the most common components including hard disk drives HDDgraphic cards, motherboards, DIMMs, capacitors, and transistors.


Relative humidity High relative humidity accelerates the corrosion caused by gaseous contaminants in an exponential manner. The open square data points are for data centers with known corrosion-related hardware failures. Automation Federation completes third review and update of the original Automation Competency Model.

InTech Magazine Web Exclusive: Industrial and urban environments often contain a complex mixture of contaminants that interact synergistically to greatly accelerate or retard the corrosive action of individual gas species. Categories News and Events Press Releases.

High values will confirm that a severe environment exists. ISA to provide end-user perspective in new international smart manufacturing collaboration. But what do these classifications mean in actual use?

A more convenient and quantitative approach is through the use of reactivity monitoring.

S7.04 is a direct measure of selected gaseous air pollutants. Addressing the Workforce Demands of Modern Industry. Although water is universally present in industrial atmospheres, the concentration varies widely.

Get Involved in ISA. This revised edition of the standard has several new features and includes updates due to the changes required for electronic equipment based on RoHS regulations.

As a direct measure of overall corrosion potential, reactivity monitoring involves the s71.044 of specially prepared copper and silver coupons Figure 2 in the operating environments that are subsequently analyzed by coulometric cathodic, electrolytic reduction with results normalized to a day exposure.

Choose from one category below to get involved atandard Equally important is recognition of the fact that temperature fluctuations dramatically affect relative humidity and often induce local condensation.

Some environments are severely corrosive, while others are mild. The review has been flagged as inappropriate and will be checked by our staff.
