Intrinsic Safety Barriers are devices which limit the power (energy) that can be delivered from a safe area into a hazardous area. Explosions are therefore prevented, not just contained, in explosion-proof conduit and heavy cast housings. Electrical energy (voltage and current) and total energy are held within safe limits, eliminating the possibility of an explosion due to excessive heat.
The Ronan Intrinsic Safety Barriers Series X57 are plug-in modules containing one to four channels. Up to 20 barrier modules can be installed on a surface mount chassis.
- Immediately accessible system components
- Low voltage operation ensures personnel safety
- Special skill levels not needed to shut down or service
- Simple barrier replacement
