Isolation barriers, are intrinsically safe devices that use galvanic isolation to protect electrical signals in potentially flammable and hazardous areas. Preventing fire and explosions is a top priority as no business wants to be responsible for accidents and injury to personnel and the public.
Typically, these barriers don’t prevent signals or communication from getting through, they are designed to stop dangerous levels of current and voltage. Isolated barrier devices limit energy to low levels making them incapable of causing ignition, electrical shocks, fires, and explosions. Control and instrumentation signals that intrinsically safe isolation barriers can function with include those from sensors, transmitters, valves, solenoids, thermocouples, etc.
Isolation barriers are perfect for when you have an application in a hazardous area and the cost for explosion-proof protection is prohibitive. Typical applications include oil and gas industries, pharmaceutical, chemical production, food and beverage, etc.
