Energy-saving lights for hazardous areas!

R. Stahl now offers compact LED-based tubular light fittings for use in Ex zones 1/21 and 2/22 that provide users with an alternative to typical linear luminaires. With a diameter of merely 55 mm, the new lights take up less than half the space required by conventional linear luminaires, and reach less than half their weight.
Thanks to extraordinary light efficiency, the new 6036 series of LED-based tubular light fittings ensures considerably lower operating costs    

What is most striking, however, is the design that makes the new 6036 series extraordinarily light-efficient: 30 four-foot long LED-based tubular light fittings, for instance, ensure an illuminance of approximately 500 lx, which would usually require 35 linear luminaires with two 36 W fluorescent tubes each – or alternatively 48 conventional box-type units retrofitted with LEDs. However, R. STAHL’s new lights consume only about half as much power and the specific power consumption per 100 lx is merely 1.5 W/m². Operating expenses are therefore greatly reduced – realistic cost savings range from some 20% to more than 50%, depending on the relevant time frame and specific solutions that are compared.

The tubular light fittings can be operated in a very wide temperature range from -40 to +60 °C. The maintenance-free units are suitable for general lighting purposes or for use as machine lamps. Due to their slim design, they can be installed in hard-to-access locations. Even at an ambient temperature of +60 °C, they reach a lifetime of 80,000 hours. The vibration-proof units are IP66/IP67-protected by default, which also makes them well suited to maritime applications. In addition to ATEX and IECEx certificates, the lights feature various regional approvals for many major markets (GOST, Gazpromnadzor, UL do Brasil, GL).
