Below is a general listing of approved Intrinsically Safe products (IS) available from Automated Control Pty Ltd.

Intrinsically Safe Products All of these products available from Automated Control are approved for underground coal mining and certified IS.

What is intrinsic safety? Intrinsic safety is a design technique applied to electrical equipment and wiring for hazardous locations. The technique is based on limiting energy, electrical and thermal, to a level below that required to ignite a specific hazardous atmospheric mixture.

How is intrinsic safety defined? Intrinsically safe equipment and wiring shall not be capable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy under normal or abnormal conditions to cause ignition of a flammable or combustible atmospheric mixture in its most easily ignitable concentration.

Who verifies intrinsic safety? Equipment is tested and certified for intrinsic safety by independent third party agencies. Independent testing ensures that your gas monitoring equipment is not only designed to be intrinsically safe, but meets all required standards for intrinsic safety.
