INTRINSIC SAFETY-THE SAFE USE OF ELECTRONICS IN HAZARDOUS LOCATIONS
Intrinsic Safety means making a circuit incapable of causing fire and explosion. Its superiority over other methods such as explosion proofing is discussed and it is shown that with modern semi-conductor devices a significant amount of electronic equipment can be safely used in an explosive environment at little cost or technical sacrifice. Examples given are instrumentation, motor control, alarm systems, emergency lighting and audible warning systems.
