Best Two-Way Radios For Intrinsically Safe

Intrinsically Safe

Enhancing Workplace Safety through Compliance and Advanced Technology

Many organizations are adapting to legislative laws, insurance demands, and occupational health and safety regulations to maintain the safety of their employees. The presence of volatile or flammable substances like fuel, gas, or dust identifies a hazardous area. To address the risk of heat generation or sparking, specialized smartphones and hand-held radios employ various safety measures, including Intrinsic Safety, to comply with safety standards. Organizations must safeguard their workers from explosion risks, particularly when their equipment could become ignited in environments with explosive atmospheres.

Hytera is committed to creating the safest digital two-way radios for challenging work settings. Their intrinsically safe DMR radios cater to industries like energy production and mining, where environments are prone to flammable dust and vapors. These radios meet IP68 and MIL-STD-810 G standards, ensuring they are dustproof, withstand water jets, can be submerged up to 2 meters for four hours, and survive drops from 2 meters. Additionally, their anti-magnetic speakers prevent the attraction of magnetic metal dust and shavings.

Tait’s Intrinsically Safe radios are a testament to their commitment to safety. These radios adhere to the highest Tait Tough standards, surpassing necessary military standards. They are water-resistant up to one meter for 30 minutes with an IP67 rating and feature shock-absorbing corners, a water-shedding grille, and a recessed lens to protect the screen. But what truly sets them apart is their rigorous testing process. These radios undergo thorough evaluations to guarantee they do not ignite explosive environments, ensuring safety even if the radio’s functionality is compromised. This high level of safety applies to both the radio and its battery under the IEC 60079-11 standard. For a battery to be removable in hazardous settings, it must be intrinsically safe on its own.
