Safety is a key element in any work place, and that is especially true in industries where explosive gases are used. Many manufacturing and special operations industries utilise two-ways radios to keep in communication with one another, but if these industries are ones where explosive gases are an issue, such as oil and gas companies, then it is essential that the radios that the companies use are intrinsically safe ones like those offered by Motorola.
The intrinsically safe radios Motorola offers are safe to use in hazardous environments. In electronics, the term “intrinsic” refers to an item that operates using electricity. Simply operating off of electricity presents the possibility of an electrical spark or heat emission from the device simply because of the electronic current or charge that the device carries. Therefore, when a manufacturer states that the radios that they offer are intrinsically safe, it means that they are safe to use in environments where sparks, heat or flame could pose a potential safety hazard. Essentially, the intrinsically safe radios Motorola offers are specifically designed to reduce the spreading of such hazards.
In order for a manufacturer to be able to claim that its radios are intrinsically safe, they must meet the strict codes and regulations set forth by the National Fire Protection Association. The intrinsically safe radios Motorola offers do just that, as can be evidenced by the following:
Motorola’s manufacturing processes and facilities are supervised by Factory Mutual, the insurance and loss prevention company that is approved by the U.S. government to enforce the implementation of National Fire Protection Association rules and regulations during the manufacturing of intrinsically safe radios.
- They carry the Factory Mutual Approved certification mark.
- They possess a Certified Intrinsically Safe battery unit.
The intrinsically safe radios that Motorola offers allow you to keep your business on schedule and maximize productivity while still keeping your employees in a safe working environment. Not only do they feature the best-in-class audio complete with noise reduction technology to ensure clear communication, but they also have a rugged design that makes them suitable to the harsh environments that they will likely be in. The radios are tightly sealed to protect them against dust and wind, and some are even submersible to accommodate underwater conditions.
No matter what type of industry you operate in, safety should be your number one priority. The intrinsically safe radios that Motorola offers help keep your work environment safe and productive.
