Dialight Debuts Class I Div 2 LED Linear Fixture with Integrated Battery Backup
First-of-its-Kind SafeSite® LED Linear Fixture Delivers 4 Hours of Light on Battery Backup for Superior Safety and Reliability in Hazardous Locations
Farmingdale, NJ (April 16th, 2013) – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today unveiled its new SafeSite® LED Linear Fixture with integrated battery backup, the first LED fixture of its kind to provide at least three full hours of illumination on battery backup for Class I Div 2 hazardous locations.
Ideally suited for offshore drilling operations, refineries and other classified environments, the four-foot linear fixture is designed to replace conventional fluorescent & HID fixtures for more energy efficient, long-life emergency lighting.
The SafeSite Linear with battery backup leverages Dialight’s industry-leading low-wattage LED design, customized driver circuitry and optimized power supply to deliver years of stand-by life on the integrated, high-performance 3.6V NiMH battery. Built-in battery status indicator and press-to-test functionality ensure reliable performance in the event of a power failure.
“Once again, Dialight’s superior technology sets the bar higher for the entire industry,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “This first-of-its-kind LED fixture with battery backup and integrated power supply delivers twice the industry-standard backup time, even in the harshest environments.”
The 85W fixture delivers 7,000 lumens on primary power, with 450 lumens in battery backup mode which is maintained over the life of the battery. Versatile mounting options include both overhead and inline conduit mounting, while an optional bracket enables ceiling or other overhead structure mount.
The fixture carries a T4a temperature rating and ambient operating range of -20°F to +149°F. The powder coated aluminum chassis and polycarbonate lens provide high impact resistance, and the fixture is IP66 and NEMA 4X rated for ingress protection. In addition to UL-1598A, UL-924 and UL-844, the SafeSite Linear with Battery Backup is also CSA 22.2 rated to meet Canadian standards.
A field-replaceable battery with at least 3 hours of expected life and Dialight’s 5-year full-performance warranty ensure many years of worry-free performance.
In addition to the Linear, the integrated battery backup is also available on Dialight’s SafeSite LED Wallpack / Bulkhead Fixture.
