Explosion-protected emergency luminaires with LEDs

Suitability for ambient temperatures ranging from -30 °C to +60 °C and effective measures against corrosion make universal applicability possible

Ex emergency light luminaire R. STAHL

With emergency luminaires series 6009/1, which are explosion protected in dust hazardous and gas hazardous areas and which have been especially developed for LED technology, R. STAHL presents the latest development in the EXLUX product line and thus complements the LED luminaires product portfolio. The installation material and the central lock are the same as the ones used for the various other types of luminaires of this product line. The mounting possibilities, from ceiling mounting to pole mounting, are as flexible as always.

Generally, the emergency luminaires are used in offshore applications and on ships – but they may also be used in other applications where the focus is on individually supplied safety luminaires. They achieve a degree of protection IP66/67 and are impact resistant according to IK10. Suitability for ambient temperatures ranging from -30 °C to +60 °C and effective measures against corrosion make universal applicability possible – from clean rooms in pharmaceutical or chemical facilities up to the extremely harsh environments of the oil and gas industry. All the exposed parts are made of robust plastic or seawater-resistant stainless steel.

The luminaires are certified pursuant to ATEX and IECEx and also pursuant to the national certificates in the key markets. To make world-wide application easier and to facilitate storage, the input voltages range from 110 to 240V in 50 or 60 Hz circuits. Easy through wiring has been provided for. Fed from a single battery, every EXLUX 6009/1 ensures up to three hours of standard-compliant emergency lighting, pursuant to EN 60598-2-22 and EN 61347-2-7.

The luminaires are available in two versions. The shorter version has a wattage of 28W and provides a luminous flux of 2440 lm. The longer variants with a wattage of 52W achieve 4980 lm. Even in emergency operation, 30% or 21% of these values provide adequate visibility. The battery units can be easily replaced and all exchangeable parts are mounted on the easily accessible reflector sheet, so obligatory maintenance can be carried out quickly and requires only minimum expenditure. Compared to fluorescent lamps, the LED technology furthermore ensures a longer service life and lower operating costs, so the products will be amortized soon.
