ExLRT vs LRT: Intrinsic safety

Intrinsic safety

This article continues our series of blog posts highlighting the benefits of the ExLRT (model XLR-9703-01) compared to the LRT (model 906-10246-3).  So far, we’ve looked at the physical differences and how suitable each tool is for use in [MRO facilities].   We’ve now arrived at the critical feature – Intrinsic Safety credentials. What does Intrinsic…
