Critical Comms vendors Tait and Affini took a holistic view of West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service individual firefighters’ needs when designing their new communications solution. Small details like readily identifiable Intrinsically Safe devices and accessories work together with Edge Computing solutions to keep officers safe and connected.

To keep workers operating in hazardous flammable environments safe and productive, they need equipment that has low electrical or thermal energy. Intrinsically Safe (IS) equipment is designed to operate in potentially explosive atmospheres without causing a fire or explosion. How does this work exactly? In this lesson from the Tait Radio Academy, we explain what Intrinsically Safe is.

In dangerous working environments, safety is not only a priority — it’s a requirement. When sending workers into hazardous areas, excellent communications are key to ensuring they remain safe. But the right communications can do more than just improve worker safety; they can also vastly increase efficiency, leading to greater return on investment for your organization.

Below are the challenges that workers in hazardous areas face and the recommended solutions that you may consider for your organization:

1) Challenge:... Continue Reading

Previously on this blog, we have discussed what Intrinsically Safe radios are and how they work.

This week, we present two new Intrinsically Safe portables by Tait, the TP9361 and TP9461, designed for maximum safety in the field and enhanced usability. These portables are engineered to operate safely in hazardous environments, ensuring your people have communications they can depend on while they get the job done.

Tait has commissioned a new radio system for VICO Indonesia’s oil-exploration operations on the coast of Borneo.

The network will have more than 600 Tait MPT portable radios used by on-site engineers, production workers and supervisors at VICO’s oil pipeline.

Rizal Purwanto – ICT Manager at VICO Indonesia, said that while the original system provided by Tait was still going strong, investment in a more modern network was a vital step to prevent any risks further down the line.

“We have been really happy with the... Continue Reading

In an increasingly safety-conscious environment, operators must protect their workers from the risk of explosion, where there is a known risk of their equipment becoming an ignition source.

Strictly regulated and enforced, IS applies wherever volatile or flammable substances, such as fuel, gas, or flammable dusts are present. With their potential to generate heat or sparking, hand-held radios use a number of methods to meet safety standards.

An Intrinsically safe portable radio designed to the standard can provide... Continue Reading
