In May 2018, the iMAC / iMAC2 Controller operating system firmware was modified to extend the iMAC Module Serial Number range. These changes occurred in iMAC Controller Operating System Firmware v4.0 (O.S. v4.0). Marcus Punch Pty Ltd was engaged to perform a safety integrity verification of these changes. iMAC2 report AMP-15-01-A1 Revision 3 (including Revisions 4 & 5) and iMAC report AMP-11-05-A2 Revision 2 (including Revisions 3 & 4) assessed these changes to be in compliance with the requirements pertaining to software modification and as a result the existing safety metrics (PFD and PFH) for the iMAC Controller, iMAC2 Controller, 2-wire and 3-wire iMAC systems remain unchanged.
This Engineering Note details the ideal installation requirements for the IPC and IPD Integrated Protection Relays.
This document has been prepared to set out the guidelines/rules regarding the differences between ‘Ex equipment’ and an ‘Ex component’, in regards to the use of empty flameproof Ex d
enclosures by third parties to manufacture Ex equipment.
Ampcontrol advise we have recently identified a discrepancy in our certification document for the AF-E series enclosures in regard to the use of separately certified components, by listing ‘separately IECEx certified components’ instead of ‘separately certified components’ as provided on our other certifications.
Ampcontrol has recently identified a discrepancy in our certification documentation for the AF-E series enclosures with regard to the terminology used to reference the separately certified components.
The objective of the program of testing was to verify that the fitting of an engineered arc fault vent solution will protect an electrical enclosure from catastrophic failure in the case of an internal arc fault.
It should be noted that unlike the IPA, IPB and IPC, the IPD is covered under a different certification. When upgrading the integrated protection system a number of components will need to be replaced to ensure compatibility to the IPD and the new certification requirements.

This engineering note provide a troubleshooting guide for users of Ampcontrol’s phone range that are experiencing issues with party-lined phones appearing off-hook when they have been confirmed to be on-hook.
The VoiceCom Phone has been specifically designed to allow in-field replacement of damaged handsets. This advantage of this design is that, unlike the IS2000 Telephone, VoiceCom Phones with damaged handsets will not be required to be returned to Ampcontrol for repair. This engineering note provides instruction for removing the damaged handset and replacing it with a new
