What is nonincendive equipment? Section 500.7(F) of the National Electrical Code explains that it is a protection technique for equipment used in Class I, Division 2, hazardous (classified) locations.
Intrinsically Safe vs. Nonincendive
- A radio termed intrinsically safe is designed and certified to
eliminate or encapsulate any components that produce sparks or which
could generate enough heat to cause an ignition in areas with flammable
gasses, dusts or fuels. Most of these radios are approved to sell in
Division 1 and 2
- Nonincendive radios are incapable of generating thermal or
electrical energy sufficient to ignite a volatile atmosphere under normal
operating conditions-although sufficient energy for ignition could be
generated under fault conditions. These radios are only approved to sell
in Division 2
- Division 1 = hazardous locations such as inside a tank or container
requires intrinsically safe equipment
- Division 2 = hazardous locations such as outside of the shielded
tank or container requires nonincendive equipment
