Explosion Proof Smartwatch Ecom Smart-Ex Watch 01 Side View


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 fire is a risk have two options: employ explosion-proofing techniques or adopt an “intrinsically safe” design approach.


Intrinsically Safe Definition


Intrinsically safe equipment is defined as “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.” This is achieved by limiting the amount of power available to the electrical equipment in the hazardous area to a level below that which will ignite the gases.


Whenever equipment is being installed in an area where combustible material is present it is essential to take steps to minimize the risk of ignition. An IS design is accepted as an appropriate approach, although requires that the whole system be designed accordingly.


The intrinsically Safe Smart Watch


Intrinsically Safe Store is proud to carry the Smart-Ex Watch 01. The Smart-Ex® Watch 01 is the first smartwatch for Ex Zones 2/22 and Div. 2. Based on the Samsung Galaxy Watch, it offers a new form of hands-free communication and enables higher employee protection.


It offers freedom of movement and hands free communication via voice control and hand gestures. With integrated GPS and motion sensors, it protects the user from the dangers of a Hazardous environment. Battery runtime is 5 days and it passed military specification (MIL-STD-810G) testing against a subset of various conditions, including drops, extreme temperatures, dust, shock/vibration, and low pressure/high altitude. A durable, scratch-resistant gorilla glass SR+ protects the display (3D dial), which can be read even in direct sunlight. 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.
