Electronic Design for Hazardous Area

Electronic Design for Hazardous Area: Safety & Compliance Solutions

Every device or circuit intended for hazardous area applications must comply with international safety standards to ensure safety. To meet these standards, every element of the circuit, especially those capable of storing energy, must be carefully considered and reviewed. This ensures that the energy cannot ignite any explosive gases present, according to the specific type of hazardous area environment.

Arshon Technology specializes in circuit design that adheres to these stringent hazardous area requirements. We have extensive experience in creating electronics, enclosures, accessories, batteries, barriers, and power supplies for hazardous areas and intrinsically safe applications. With a deep understanding of class and zone definitions and compliance with ATEX requirements, we offer customized solutions to meet the rigorous safety standards of hazardous environments. On this page, we will showcase our expertise in circuit design that meets hazardous area agency reviews and our capabilities in designing barriers and power supplies for safe zone applications.

Understanding Hazardous Areas

Hazardous areas are environments where the presence of flammable gases, vapors, dust, or combustible fibers poses a risk of ignition and explosion. Regulatory bodies classify hazardous areas into zones based on the likelihood and duration of the presence of hazardous substances. Conversely, safe zones are areas where the risk of ignition and explosion is minimal.

Circuit Design for Hazardous Areas

Our core competency lies in circuit design that passes hazardous area agency reviews. We understand the critical importance of ensuring that electronic devices deployed in hazardous environments are intrinsically safe and compliant with relevant regulations. Our design process involves rigorous analysis, simulation, and testing to verify the integrity and reliability of the circuits under various operating conditions.

Compliance with ATEX Requirements

ATEX (ATmosphères EXplosibles) is the European regulatory framework governing the manufacture and use of equipment intended for use in explosive atmospheres. Our products are designed and tested in accordance with ATEX directives to ensure compliance with the highest safety standards. From component selection to assembly techniques, we adhere to ATEX requirements at every stage of the design and manufacturing process.

Custom Enclosures, Accessories, and Barriers

In addition to electronics design, we offer custom enclosure solutions tailored to the specific requirements of hazardous area environments. Our enclosure designs comply with hazardous area requirements as well as normal environmental parameters such as moisture, dust, and corrosion, while ensuring adequate ventilation and heat dissipation. We also offer a range of customer accessories, including cable connection, barrier between environments as well as Intrinsically Safe design by means of encapsulation or by means of design elements itself.

Moreover, we specialize in barrier design for hazardous area applications, providing intrinsically safe barriers that limit electrical energy and prevent ignition sources in hazardous environments. Our barriers are designed to provide reliable protection for sensitive equipment and personnel operating in hazardous areas.
