Intrinsically safe cell phones offer safe, reliable mobile communication within a classified or hazardous area. You can stay connected within Class 1 Division 1 classified hazardous areas (Zone 1/21, Div. 1 and Zone 2/22). Intrinsically safe mobile phones must meet special battery design criteria in order to achieve UL, ATEX directive, or IECEx certification for use in explosive atmospheres.
Only properly designed battery-operated, self-contained devices can be intrinsically safe by themselves. Other field devices and wiring are intrinsically safe only when employed in a properly designed IS system. Such systems shall be designed and documented according to the standard IEC 60079-25 Intrinsically safe electrical systems, installed according to IEC 60079-14 and inspected and maintained according to IEC 60079-17.
Working on hazardous environment does not mean you have to go without electronics or a communication device. These phones are rated and designed to prevent ignition or cause safety related concerns in hazardous areas. The phones features include HD Video camera, ergonomic form factor, rugged housings and scratch-resistant displays that can be operated with wet hands or gloves, the devices are equipped with high-performance operating systems and powerful lithium ion batteries.
Is Intrinsically Safe Certified Equipment More Expensive than Non-certified Versions?
Intrinsically safe equipment is slightly more expensive than noncertified versions. This results from obtaining and maintaining the approval than from the cost of additional or uncommon components none of which are expensive.
Does Intrinsic Safety affect the performance of the certified device?
No, the performance is the same as the as the non-certified with higher reliability. These devices use the same parts as the non-certified device but have been designed to limit the energy stored and heat generated in case of an internal fault condition.
