Studies of electrical equipments explosion protection protected by intrinsic safety “i”, encapsulation “m” and pressurization “p” are activities reflected in all activities done in the laboratory.

Researching activities are conducted in the field of:

–     research on protection and safe operation of equipment with type of protection “i”, “m”, “p” and pressurized rooms;

–    research on the risk of ignition of explosive atmospheres caused by electrical equipment with type of protection “i”, “m”, “p” and rooms pressurisation.


a)      tests in explosive atmospheres in covered field for certification of equipment;

b)      tests in explosive atmospheres for voluntary field;

c)      tests  equipments used for monitoring explosive atmospheres in covered field or voluntary field;

d)     dielectric strength;

e)      mechanical tests for enclosures (impact resistance);

f)       tests for measuring equipment maximum surface temperature.
