Engineers at Work: Designing Electronics for Hazardous Locations
Guest Speaker: Scott Anderson, Staff Engineer II MSA Safety Pittsburgh, PA
When a battery-operated device needs to be used in locations that could contain flammable or explosive materials, many safety precautions need to take place in the product development stages. Designing electronic circuits for these environments can be accomplished with what is known as an intrinsically safe design. In this seminar, Scott will share some of these electrical principles pertaining to an intrinsically safe design of circuit boards and show how they are being used in products for the modern connected worker.
Graduating from Indiana Tech in 2016 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, Scott has been an Electrical Engineer designing printed circuit boards for consumer and industrial products for almost five years. His passion for firefighter safety equipment has guided his career to where he is today, working at one of the world’s leaders in safety products, MSA Safety, located just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In his time in the industry he has designed electronics for products such as: Portable Gas Detectors, Self-Contained-Breathing-Apparatus (SCBAs), and Com- munication Devices.
