    Is this kind of "contact-less" lighting mainly good for use in explosive environments?, where eg fine powders or fumes in the atmosphere could cause an explosion if a "Normal" luminaire was "hot plugged" in to a "Normal" lighting system.

    The isotera system has no metal to metal contacts so presumably if they "hot plug" a luminaire in then there will be no contact sparks?

    The transfer of energy is by magnetic field, so presumably there are no sparks, even when the ferrite core halves are manually closed together?

    So, is the main advantage of the isotera system its possible application in explosive environments?.....since there is no contact sparking when luminaires are hot plugged?
