If you’re wondering what an intrinsically safe smart watch is used for, then this article is for you.
When working at Coal or Gas mines, or any Hazardous environment, sometimes the risk is quite evident. Preventing fire and explosions is a top priority as no business or organization wishes to be responsible for causing death and injury.
Engineers needing to install equipment in areas where a fire is a risk have two options: employ explosion-proofing techniques or adopt an “intrinsically safe” design approach.
Intrinsically Safe Definition
Intrinsically Safe (IS) equipment is “equipment and wiring which is incapable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy under normal or abnormal conditions to cause ignition of a specific hazardous atmospheric mixture in its most easily ignited concentration.” In other words, Intrinsic Safety limits the amount of power available to the electrical equipment in the hazardous area to a level below that which will ignite the gases.
It’s crucial to reduce the risk of ignition when installing equipment in an area with combustible material by taking steps toward using safe equipment. For example, IS designs are acceptable as an appropriate approach to make the worksite safer. Although, IS equipment requires an accommodation in system design to accommodate the technique and features.
The intrinsically Safe Smart Watch
The Intrinsically Safe Store is proud to carry the Smart-Ex Watch 01. The Smart-Ex® Watch 01 is the first intrinsically safe smartwatch for Ex Zones 2/22 and Div. 2. Additionally, the Smart-Ex® Watch 01 offers hand-free services based on the Samsung Galaxy Watch and enables higher employee protection.
The smartwatch offers freedom of movement and hands-free communication via voice control and hand gestures. With integrated GPS and motion sensors, the watch protects users from the dangers of a Hazardous environment. Moreover, the battery runtime is five days and has passed military specification (MIL-STD-810G) testing against a subset of various conditions. Specifically, conditions include drops, extreme temperatures, dust, shock/vibration, and low pressure/high altitude. Another feature is the durable, scratch-resistant gorilla glass SR+ that protects the display (3D dial) and enhances visibility even in direct sunlight. Lastly, the smartwatch is sealed dust-tight, waterproof up to 50 meters to ISO standard, and operates at temperature extremes from -15°C to +50°C.
