Lumenox has announced its new LPX6 explosion proof ATEX/IECEx approved high output LED portable floodlight, suitable for providing temporary portable lighting in Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 gas and dust environments in oil and gas, petrochemical, aviation, marine, utility and other hazardous areas. Powered from either 115 or 230VAC, the light output, generated from an array of 16 high efficiency LED light engines, is 5800 lumens at a colour temperature of 5000°K. LPX6 is IP66 sealed against the ingress of water or dust, allowing it to be used in harsh environments. Operating lifetime is in excess of 75,000 hours, and the colour temperature of the light is stable throughout the lifetime of the unit.
A single unit is powered directly from the mains supply though an integral 0.5m cable, terminated in a standard ATEX plug. An ATEX approved power supply and extension cable assembly enables up to four units to be powered from a single mains socket located inside the hazardous area. The marine grade corrosion resistant aluminium housing is contained within a stainless steel frame, which allows the unit to be vertically adjusted through a wide angle to give optimum illumination as required.
