KEMP, Texas, June 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Industrial lighting leader, Larson Electronics LLC, announced the release of a new explosion proof self-testing bug eye LED exit sign light with a remote head approved for use in Class I, Class II and Class III locations. This emergency fixture produces a total of 99 lumens and operates for at least 90 minutes during a power outage, making this exit system ideal for emergency failsafe lighting in areas where explosion proof fixtures are required.
The EXP-EMG-EXT-LE6-4L-V2 from Larson Electronics is an explosion proof bug eye emergency LED exit sign that includes an LED exit sign with optional arrows and three explosion proof enclosures configured into a bug eye layout. Additionally, a remote light head has been added allowing operators to illuminate the doorway beneath the exit sign. The three explosion proof lamps contain eight LEDs each. Each LED lamp produces 33 lumens of white high-quality LED light, while drawing just 3.3 watts. The emergency exit sign comes standard with no arrows but includes an optional left or right light-up arrow to indicate the direction of the nearest exit.
This emergency exit unit features self-testing and a backup emergency battery for failsafe reliability, which will run for at least 90 minutes after a power failure with the help of a 3.6-volt NiCad chargeable battery. The battery requires just 24 hours to fully recharge and is completely maintenance free with a life expectancy of 15 years. The emergency battery includes a low voltage disconnect to protect deep discharge and damage if voltage drops below normal load.
This explosion proof emergency LED exit sign includes brown-out, short circuit and voltage surge protection. The indicator lights can be adjusted both vertically and horizontally, allowing operators to achieve ideal coverage specific to their location. The EXP-EMG-EXT-LE6-4L-V2 is designed for surface mounting and made of powder coated die cast aluminum with polycarbonate lenses protecting the LED bulbs. The fixture operates on 120/277V AC at 60Hz and is rated for Class I, Divisions 1 & 2, Groups A, B, C, D, Class I, Zones 1 & 2, Groups IIB+H2, IIA, Class II, Divisions 1 & 2, Groups E, F, G and Class III Divisions 1 & 2 rated for hazardous areas.
