An Intrinsically safe portable radio that has been designed to the correct standard can provide all the features and performance of a non-Intrinsically-Safe model. In addition to these features and performances, it also has several enhancements and methods of protection to prevent explosions.

These include:
  • Full encapsulation of battery circuitry to prevent electrolyte ingress in the unlikely event of a cell rupture,
  • Use of anti-static material for the battery case and
  • Stored energy limitation in the radio circuit,
  • Prevention of internal sparking or overheating,
  • Component and conductor spacing to prevent short circuit caused by dust or atmospheric contamination.
