Dialight unveils ATEX/IECEx LED linear fitting
13 March 2013
Dialight, the LED lighting specialist, has unveiled a new stainless steel linear LED fitting that is designed specifically to reduce maintenance needs in hazardous areas as a replacement for conventional Ex fluorescent fittings. The fitting is durable and resistant to shock, vibration and corrosion, and incorporates an exclusive and replaceable integrated power supply.
Available in both 32W and 64W versions (2x18W and 2x36W fluorescent equivalents) and carrying IECEx/ATEX Zone 1 certification, the 316 grade stainless steel linear LED fitting is D Shock compliant to MOD specification BR8470 to Grades C and D.
Carrying a five-year unconditional continuous performance warranty, the linear LED fitting will reduce dangerous and costly maintenance and Ex inspection needs in inaccessible and testing environments such as offshore, oil and gas, power generation, chemical, pharmaceutical, water treatment and mining applications. Unlike the fluorescents it replaces, Dialight says it will not suffer from end of life failures.
Dialight’s signature glare-free advanced lens design allows the new linear LED to replicate exactly the current fluorescent light distribution pattern while simultaneously improving light output and dramatically reducing the impact area of the traditional polycarbonate diffuser.
“Our exclusive power supplies and optics are custom-designed to optimise the performance of each fitting,” said Dialight Group Chief Executive Roy Burton. “This superior design not only delivers an extended lifetime compared to any other conventional fluorescent or LED lighting solution, but also eliminates the safety risk and expense associated with rope-access maintenance and Ex inspection in high risk environments.”
The SafeSite LED Linear is T4 temperature rated for reliable performance from -20°C to +60°C and L70 lumen maintenance at 25°C for 100,000 hours. The units are IP66/67 (pending) rated for superior ingress protection and are sealed at the end caps, limiting the surface area compared to conventional fluorescents. Its low profile form factor also improves wind resistance while its unique elliptical profile minimises areas where dirt or dust could accumulate.
The SafeSite LED Linear is the latest addition to Dialight’s growing portfolio of LED lighting solutions for hazardous and non-hazardous locations and is also available as part of the Dialight DuroSite series in an industrial version. With mounting options to meet the normal demands of industry and offering loop-in and wire-through options, the LED Linear is ideal for both retrofit and new installation.
