An Intrinsically Safe Solution for Workforce Visibility and Resource Optimization
Development of Triax’s Intrinsically Safe hardware is the product of a significant engineering and certification process that meets the most stringent safety requirements globally. These first-of-their-kind products have been engineered to operate in hazardous workplace environments, including within confined spaces, that require rigorous engineering controls to prevent accidents and keep workers safe.
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.
