Explosion Protection in Sensor Technology and Instrumentation

Department 3.6


The Department 3.6 works with actual, application-oriented research projects in the area of intrinsic safety, e.g.

  • Ignition by a.c. voltages in particular for field bus systems
  • Theoretical computational modelling of the ignition behavior of intrinsically safe networks
  • Intrinsic safety under non-atmospheric conditions
  • Investigations for the explosion protection of optical radiation sources.
