Free ATEX- approved LED trials for Offshore Europe visitors
Free trial installations of ATEX-approved LED light fittings will be on offer to Offshore Europe visitors by Dialight, specialist in applied LED technology. For the first time Dialight is showcasing its SafeSite® Series of LED fittings, now ATEX-approved for Zones 2 and 22 and the first LED fitting to obtain ATEX certification that can also replace existing 250W high pressure sodium (HPS), 250W metal halide and 165W Induction fittings. Trials will be subject to a preliminary site visit by Ian Duffy of Dialight Europe With its five-year continuous use warranty and rated to run for 100,000 hours, the SafeSite Series of LED fittings needs zero maintenance. On top of this the SafeSite 250 has been created to outperform 250W HPS lighting sources using only 100W per fitting to offer power savings of 60%. In addition whereas HPS lamps emit light almost exclusively in the orange area of the colour spectrum, SafeSite delivers pure “full spectrum” white light that is much safer to work under. ATEX-approved SafeSite doesn’t require a warm-up period and can be operated as ‘instant-on’, reaching full light intensity in a fraction of a second, so users can save more energy by powering down lights when not needed or using motion control to avoid running them 24/7. Offshore Europe takes place in Aberdeen, UK from 8-11 September 2009. Dialight is on stand 1647 in the Boyd Orr Hall, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
