Intrinsically Safe Radios

Some potentially hazardous work environments require staff to use intrinsically safe radio equipment. Because radios are electrical by nature, there’s always a risk — minor as it may be — that they could spark or heat up enough to cause ignition. Intrinsically safe two-way radios are designed and housed in a way that eliminates that possibility and keeps workers safe from extraneous risk in hazardous conditions.
