ATEX Two Way Radio

ATEX approved two way radios are manufactured to very stringent requirements and high manufacturing standards to reduce or eliminate any risk of generating the tiniest spark as well as heat produced by the device.

Workers can confront threats from sources such as explosive gas or combustible dust in environments where safe, reliable radio communication is absolutely critical. This occurs within many industries including but not limited to chemical, pharmaceutical, mining, power generation and wood processing.

Explosive atmospheres occur when flammable gases, mist, vapours or dust are mixed with air. This creates a risk of explosion. Intrinsic safety (IS) is a protection technique for safe operation of electrical equipment in hazardous areas by limiting the energy (electrical and thermal) available for ignition.

ATEX rating for radio equipment ensures that the use of suitably rated equipment keeps your workers and your business protected from such catastrophic events.
