Hazardous Area (ATEX) Two Way Radios
ATEX Two Way Safety Radios
Any work site environment that is potentially explosive, for example oil, gas, mining or chemical installations, could be hazardous for operating radio equipment. Electrical sparks or heat from two way radios can make them a source of ignition, causing injuries and even loss of life.
In 2003 the ATEX (Atmospheres Explosibles) Directive 94/9/EC was introduced by the European Union. This seeks to ensure that intrinsically safe equipment and systems, including two way radios, are used by workers in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Intrinsically Safe Radios
“Intrinsically safe” is an expression you might hear frequently when applied to the use of electrical equipment in hazardous areas. In the case of two way radios, it means the device is safe to use where the presence of a spark, heat or flame could create a safety hazard.
Hazardous Area Industries
There are many situations in which radios are critical to effective operations, yet standard two way radios could make a hazardous environment even more dangerous.
