Intrinsically Safe Devices

If you find yourself working in an environment where hazardous dust or gas may be present, it’s imperative to invest in intrinsically safe equipment. APC Technology manufactures and supplies panel PCs, displays input devices (or user interface keyboards, joysticks and mices) and mobile devices. These devices are designed for optimal safety in potentially explosive environments and are incapable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy to ignite in a hazardous atmosphere.

What is intrinsically safe protection?

Intrinsic safe protection is a safety prevention that mitigates sparks and heat from being generated from electrical equipment, mobile devices and instruments that can possibly initiate an explosion in a hazardous space. Intrinsically safe equipment uses low current and low voltage, which is insufficient to create hazardous sparks and heat.

IECEx certification in comparison to ATEX

It covers the directives for standardisation equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

The IECEx stands for International Electrotechnical Commission Explosive. The certification’s quality assessment specifications are based on standards provided by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Compared to the ATEX, IECEx is an international certification recognised by many countries to build confidence in the safety of Ex equipment. IECEx is the only accepted certification in Australia for electrical equipment intended for use in an explosive atmosphere.
