Javier Garza of Bartec


Methods of Protection in Hazardous (Classified) Locations, NEC 500, 501, 502-504 and 505

This presentation will discuss the protection methods allowed under a specific area classification. This will include discussing how there may be alternative equipment that still meets the requirements but would offer less maintenance, cost, weight, etc.


Javier Garza has an Engineering degree from Texas A&M. Have been involved in low voltage power distribution and controls since starting with an OEM making plastic injection molding machines. My experience includes custom controls for non-hazardous (UL 508A) and hazardous areas (UL 698A). These included MCCs, VFD cabinets, PLC & HMI programming, combination motor starters, bus boxes, etc. I’ve been the designated UL representative for a company as well as an attendee at National Code standards meetings. I transitioned into sales, and I am now the Business Development Manager for Bartec where we are the manufacture of globally rated explosion protected products including Class 1 Division 1 & 2, ATEX and IECEx Zone 1, and well as other global certifications.
