Last ray of light in the dark!

Lightweight, compact, robust emergency light fittings for hazardous areas!
When the lights suddenly go out, they remain to light the way: linear luminaires of the R. STAHL 6009 series, which now provides new emergency lighting solutions for fluorescent lamps with 2 x 18 W or 2 x 36 W power. The new EXLUX 6009 products provide 10% higher luminaire efficiency than the preceding models, which were already among the most successful emergency lights on the market. Moreover, they are lighter as well as more compact while featuring enhanced torsion resistance.

The standardised enclosure design with a sealing system based on silicone foam meets the increased service life requirements stipulated by IEC 60079. In addition to the gaskets, which are insensitive to chemicals and UV radiation, the luminaires are equipped with a robust hinge and innovative, user-friendly central lock. The enclosure ensures IP66/67 ingress protection. EXLUX 6009 luminaires are approved for use in hazardous zones 1, 21 and 2, 22. They withstand even outdoor conditions with icy weather and temperatures as low as -30 °C.

To check their operational readiness, the devices automatically perform a weekly self-test and an annual emergency light duration test. Very safe maintenance access to the luminaires is ensured with a full-phase safety shutdown via N/C switches. The battery and battery cover can only be replaced together, which means the gasket cannot be accidentally compromised.

Components that are swapped out (electronic ballast, lamp holder) are directly installed on the easy-to-remove reflector plate, making servicing the light fitting even easier. R. STAHL offers EXLUX 6009 luminaires in a standard version with 4 mm2 spring-cage terminals and 5-wire through wiring. Versions with screw terminals for cable cross-sections of 6 mm2 and without through-wiring or other custom modifications are available on request. The luminaires can be mounted on walls, ceilings or masts or installed as pendant lights.
