HAZARDOUS AREA ENVIRONMENTS
In Industrial IoT, plant and/or field areas that are exposed to ignitable concentrations of flammable gas, vapor and/or dust where an electrical spark could cause a hazardous explosion are classified as “hazardous” areas. Today’s industrial enterprises are looking to keep their assets protected and ensure workers are operating in safe conditions.
CHALLENGES FACING TODAY’S INDUSTRIAL IOT ENTERPRISES
To keep worksites operating safely in hazardous areas, today’s industrial IoT manufacturers are looking for ways to increase efficiency, productivity and still keep workers safe.
