  • Why are fibre optic connectors for hazardous areas a good choice?

    Industries of all kinds rely on connectivity to network with smart devices and to retrieve data from monitoring devices, networked surveillance cameras and instrumentation even in hazardous areas - so why does this make fibre optic connectors for hazardous areas a particularly good choice? First of all, if you are going to use an optical connection in a designated Zone 0, 1 or 2 environment, then it's worth making sure you choose fibre optic connectors for hazardous areas of that type. Hazardous area connectors provide extra protection for your fibre optics, with wide operating temperature ranges including subzero operation, deluge protection and a variety of ex certification. But fibre optics also make good sense in hazardous areas as transmitting signals using light uses relatively low power and does not produce much heat. According to Transparency Market Research, fibre optic networks can save up to:

    • 45% on equipment installation such as switches and cabinets.
    • 75% on future upgrades thanks to universal compatibility of optic cables.
    • Low total cost of ownership with passive, centralised networks.
    Taken together, these benefits are predicted to lead to fibre optic networks accounting for 75% of all global networks by 2026, with Europe accounting for over a third of the $4.2 billion worldwide sales at that time.

  • Hazardous area warning signals to hit $2bn

    The global market for hazardous area warning signals is set to exceed $2 billion by 2025, according to a report from QYResearch. Audible and visual warning signs for hazardous areas in particular are often designed not only to raise the alarm, but to contend with challenging conditions in their own right, without raising the risk level. In its analysis, the market research firm compares the current position of the hazardous area signalling equipment industry with its value five years ago. Based on this benchmark, it forecasts that the market value worldwide will increase from $1.6 billion in 2017 to nearly $2.2 billion in 2025 at a compound annual growth rate of 3.8%. At that rate, the market size would break through the $2 billion threshold in 2023, with growth particularly strong in the largest segment for hazardous area signalling equipment, the oil and gas industry. Hazardous area warning signals comprise both audible and visual warning signals, including strobes, signal lights, bells and horns, loudspeakers and tone generators, fire alarms and call points. As working environments become more challenging, these categories are seeing growing demand from diverse industries such as petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and drink, mining, energy and power, among others.
