Flexible LED Approach for Hazardous Areas
03 May 2016
Abtech have launched the Gamma range of LED luminaires for Zone 2 hazardous areas. Featuring both a high output floodlight and a low glare version that incorporates Abtech’s patented optical light guide technology. The complete range is both ATEX and IECEx certified.
Suitable for use in Zone 2 gas and Zone 21 & 22 dust environments, the Gamma range has been designed to consider the rigours of operation associated with oil and gas production. Constructed from marine grade stainless steel, the Gamma features toughened glass, stainless steel fixings throughout and is designed to operate within an ambient range of -50°C to +55°C (T3/T4) ensuring the luminaire is capable of withstanding the harshest of environments.
The 136W Gamma is a low windage floodlight configured for wide area lighting. It utilises four high output LED modules to provide over 12,000 lumens of crisp white light and is rated T3 at 55°C ambient.
The 104W low glare (Gamma LG) is designed to minimise the effects usually associated with glare (excessive contrast in the visual environment can result in temporary visual impairment) by utilising a patented optical array thus providing a uniform and high quality white. The Gamma LG’s compact form and even optical distribution make it equally suitable for use as either a floodlight or a lowbay. It is ideal for use in height restricted or congested areas where there is a need for higher levels of white light, such as over pumps or rotating machinery.
All Gamma variants incorporate harmonic and overvoltage protection to EN61000-3-2 & EN61000-3-3. The control gear also features thermal cut off protection to maintain LED life. All Gamma luminaires are supplied with a five-year complete system warranty.
