Intrinsically Safe Cell Phones are specifically designed and engineered for Hazardous Area environments. Cell phones or “smartphones” in Explosion-Proof areas will specifically be marked with certifications such as ATEX Zone 1, ATEX Zone 2, Class 1 Divison 1, Class 1 Division 2, IECEx and more.
Intrinsically Safe Cell Phones and Intrinsically Safe Smartphones are starting to replace dedicated camera units. If you are wanting to consolidate devices and combine an Intrinsically Safe Camera with an Intrinsically Safe Cell Phone you now can. However, there still is a need for our clients in Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Field Services, etc. that need that extra edge in their Hazardous Areas.
Organisations in the EU must follow Directives to protect employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere.
There are two ATEX Directives (one for the manufacturer and one for the user of the equipment):
the ATEX 114 “equipment” Directive 2014/34/EU – Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres the ATEX 137 “workplace” Directive 1999/92/EC – Minimum requirements for improving the safety and health protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.
The ATEX Directive covers explosions from flammable gas/vapours and combustible dust/fibres (which, contrary to common perception, can lead to hazardous explosions)
Hazard – Gas/vapour/mist
Zone 0 – A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is present continuously or for long periods or frequently. Zone 1 – A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally. Zone 2 – A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for a short period only.
