Many companies approach us after they have designed a product. This usually happens when companies don't realize they need hazardous locations certifications until after the fact. As a result, your product may fall under the requirements of intrinsic safety, explosion-proof or another hazardous locations design technique.
At this point, your design flexibility is low, your invested costs are high, and your deadlines are short. This makes it difficult to make the changes required to achieve intrinsically safe certifications.
If you are in this situation, it is more important than ever to seek expert design advice, as an accurate, up-front estimate of the effort involved is essential. Otherwise, you may find your team bogged down in expensive, lengthy, and repetitive testing cycles.
