Abstract

A circuit breaker panel for hazardous environments and, in particular, Class 1, Division 2 environments, includes a housing having an internal cavity and an access opening through which the internal cavity is accessed. A closure door covers the access opening of the housing. The closure door is held in a closed positioned solely by one or more one latches. This permits rapid access to be obtained to the internal cavity through the access opening. Electrical components are positioned within the internal cavity of the housing, some of the electrical components being circuit breakers. Each of the circuit breakers and all other arcing and sparking electrical component is enclosed in its own self contained explosion proof casing.
