  • Intrinsically Safe Classification
    “Intrinsically Safe” is a fire safety rating given to the equipment by the Factory Mutual Research Corporation. When equipment is given this rating, it is considered safe to use the equipment in certain flammable or combustible atmospheres. Flammable atmospheres have been categorized by Class, Division, and Group as described below:
