Equipment T class approval is based on use in an ambient of -20C to +40C unless otherwise stated (ie. T amb. = 35C). The T-Class on the equipment states that the equipment will not provide an ignition capable surface hotter than the temperature represented by the stated T-Class. Therefore equipment to be installed in hazardous areas where the hazard has temperature class T6 must not get hotter than 85C. For equipment in hazardous areas, the higher the T-Number the less hot the surface temperature will get.
