Intrinsically safe devices

Specialist devices from Twig and Ecom

These devices are ideal for lone workers operating in hazardous areas or extreme conditions. Intrinsically safe devices limit the use of electrical and thermal energy to a level below that required to ignite a specific hazardous atmospheric mixture.

 

At the same time, they’re top-of-the-range mobile phones, deploying GPS/GSM technology, and they provide excellent reception and coverage.

Our recommended devices support the full range of Safe Hub features. In the event of an accident or dangerous situation, the lone worker can manually press the emergency button to trigger a Red Alert at the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). Meanwhile, the in-built 3D sensors will raise a reactive Worker Down alarm at the ARC. And the device’s screen allows the user to set intervals for our proactive Safe Check feature, and to access Group Alert and Safe Beacon messages.

What is intrinsic safety?

Minimise the risk of a spark


Intrinsic safety is a technique designed to limit energy, electrical and thermal outputs. ‘Intrinsically safe equipment and wiring shall not be capable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy under normal or abnormal conditions to cause ignition of a flammable or combustible atmospheric mixture in its most easily ignitable concentration.’ Intrinsic safety is applied to electrical equipment and wiring used in hazardous locations or where hazardous or flammable materials are used.

Who verifies intrinsic safety?

Equipment is certified by independent third-party agencies.  The directive covers explosion protection guidelines 2014/34/EU for devices and 1999/92/EG for operations. The ATEX guidelines are owned by the Director General of the EU commission Enterprise and Industry in cooperation with the member states and standardisation organisations.

 

Other international agencies that provide compliance standards include the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FM) and the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).
