17 December 2010
Cooper Crouse-Hinds has extended its popular range of explosion protected AB 05 Ex bulkhead light fittings for incandescent and high pressure discharge lamps, to include a new LED version.
New energy efficient Ex LED bulkhead luminaires
This LED option is certified for use in explosive gas atmospheres (Zone 1 and Zone 2) and explosive dust atmospheres (Zone 21 and Zone 22), in accordance with ATEX standards.
The AB 05’s innovative new LED technology provides a range of benefits for customers, including energy savings over the life of the luminaire, high light yield and efficiency, optimum light distribution for low and medium suspension heights, IR- and UV-free light source, as well as cost savings due to longer maintenance intervals. The lamps are also environmentally friendly, as they contain no mercury.
The AB 05 LED luminaire can be ceiling or wall-mounted and is shock- and vibration-resistant, making it suitable for areas that require low profile, safe and reliable lighting, including gangways, corridors, stairwells and storage areas, as well as for use in areas where the available space is restricted. The lamps are also ideal for low temperature applications that require instant illumination from start up.
Due to its robust design and aluminium alloy IP66 enclosure with integrated guard and impact-resistant dome-shaped glass, the AB 05 LED bulkhead luminaire is also suitable for use in harsh and hazardous environments, damp and dusty ambient conditions such as offshore oil and gas, petrochemicals and chemical plants, where explosive atmospheres are also prevalent. Other target industries include pharmaceuticals, food processing, grain, oil refineries and waste water treatment plants.
Gordon Low, OEM Sales Engineer At Cooper Crouse-Hinds UK commented: “The AB 05 LED luminaires use an energy efficient 32W LED module with integrated driver. This provides 2000 lumen in the task area, which is equivalent to a 150W incandescent or a 50W mercury vapour lamp. The light fittings are also easy to install and weigh just 7kg.”
The AB 05 LED bulkhead luminaire can operate in ambient temperatures from –40 deg C up to 55 deg C and is certified for temperature class T6.
