What is “Intrinsic Safety”?
Intrinsic safety (IS) is an engineering control for the most hazardous workplace environments. We engineered our IS devices to limit the possibility of ignition in environments where there are flammable gases or particles that present a dire hazard to workers. Being an IS IoT connected workplace solution, we are now able to connect all workers on site, no matter where they are working.
Hazardous environments requiring intrinsically safe devices can include oil refineries, mining, paint manufacturing, distilling, chemical plants, and spray booths. Flammable vapors and gases are the main safety issue in these industrial scenarios, and when they mix with oxygen in the air, they can establish an explosion-prone environment. Food processing factories, grain handling facilities, recycling operations, and even flour mills generate combustible dust, which is why these are hazardous locations too.
“With Spot-r, we’ve been able to streamline our operations, eliminate workflow bottlenecks, and measure our crews’ productivity levels. We’re excited about the availability of the Intrinsically Safe solution, so we can bring these benefits to sites that require IS controls in hazardous areas.”
