About the Technology

Intrinsically Safe (IS) 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" (ISA-RP12.6).

This is achieved by limiting the power available to (and used or generated by) the electrical equipment in the hazardous area to a level below that which will ignite the hazardous atmosphere.


Do you have a new development requirement?

We have extensive experience taking projects through all phases of development, in rapid timeframes.
