This manual explains the application concepts of explosion protection using Intrinsic Safety (IS or Ex 'I'). This is with reference to British, European and international standards for the certification and use of electrical 'apparatus'. Where electrical equipment is used in 'Potentially Flammable Atmospheres', the IEC79 series of international standards are now emerging and gaining acceptance in order to develop a global approach to hazardous area plant safety.
This manual covers IS as the preferred technique for instrumentation applied to industrial plant inputs/outputs in hazardous areas. The principles of IS do not change since these are based on the laws of physics, however, the implementation of IS is open to interpretation and causes some conflict as the subject is still seen as a 'black art'.
This manual aims to widen the understanding of this technique by explaining the basic rules within the context of their application. Engineers and technicians working in hazardous process control and instrumentation areas must have an understanding of the close integration between the safety and operational aspects of intrinsic safety as a protection technique in order to specify, design and maintain systems.
This manual is designed to explain the theory of IS and its close integration with operational signal transfer. You will gain a greater understanding of IS loop concepts as a basis for working with measurement and control loops using standard and custom IS solutions. Defining and applying the correct terminology will assist you in communicating and documenting important safety details.
