What are the defects?

Quest Technologies have made a design change in the Edge5 Intrinsically Safe Noise Dosimeter in order to maintain compliance with the IECEX standard to which it is approved.
This design change was mandatory and the previous design version is no longer in compliance with the IECEX standard. Although the instruments were not decertified, by agreement with the certification agency Quest Technologies must replace all of the original design units now in the market.

What are the hazards?

Due to the units no longer being in compliance with the IECEX standard, there is a risk that they might be an ignition source in an area where flammable gases are present.
