Intrinsically Safe UL Radios
Hytera Intrinsically Safe UL radios are fully compliant with the IP68 and MIL-STD- 810 G standards. They are Class I, II, and III UL913 certified for use in areas where flammable dust and vapors are present. The Intrinsically Safe UL Radios are dustproof, impervious to water jets, submersible to a depth of 2 meters for 4 hours, and can stand up to drop shock testing at 2 meters. An anti-magnetic speaker does not attract magnetic metal dust and shavings.
Safety is oftentimes the most important factor businesses will weigh during a decision-making process, and safety concerns exist in every type of business, regardless of the industry. In manufacturing and food production industries, flammable metals, minerals, or explosive dust from grain or sugars lead to hazardous environments, both in storage and during transportation. In refineries, the chemicals used to produce gasoline and other fuels create explosive atmospheres depending on a chemical’s flash point. Hytera’s intrinsically safe designated radios contain UL913 certification for use in critical, dangerous areas where explosive gas and combustible dust are present.
Intrinsically safe (IS) is an approach to the design of communications products going into hazardous areas. If the power or energy of a radio is reduced to a level where it is too low to cause an ignition, it will prevent sparks and keep overall temperatures low enough that the radio can be used safely in an environment where combustible or flammable threats are possible. Hytera understands the challenges that are unique to working in hazardous environments and is dedicated to designing and developing safer radios for a wide range of customer applications. With several intrinsically safe certified options to choose from, Hytera remains an industry leader in producing radios that are safe for use while working in both challenging and hazardous environments.
