Are the RSA SecurID tokens considered intrinsically safe for NEC Class I, Div 1 or Div 2 areas (no potential for spark)?
I will summarize by saying, no, we do not have certification for hardware tokens and NEC Explosive Gas Area Classifications. RSA Sales would be the team to check with for more details or specifications on authenticators.
SID700 is completely environmentally sealed, and has these published compliance/conformities
Tamper evidence: Conforms to ISO 13491-1; ISO DIS 13491-2:2005Product safety standards: RoHS, WEEE, CE, cRoHS,Regulatory standards: FCC Part 15 Class A and Class B, EN55022Class A and Class B
For NEC Class I Iocations I do not think we have any certification.
You would need to reach out to RSA sales to see if there is more information about this, but the spec sheet for sid700 doesn't go into anything further than FCC compliance (electronics emissions) and hazardous substances.

The SID700 would likely need the metal keyfob tab removed, and a static strap attached to ensure it's plastic housing is not a static discharge point. It has an internal battery as well, and in all my years I have not heard of a token catching fire or exploding, but still, what I write here about it is not NEC HazLoc compliant wording...
