LED BEACON IS BRIGHT CHOICE FOR HAZARDOUS AREAS

28-01-2020

Available throughout Australia from Mechtric, the Haz Loc D2xB1LD3 LED beacon from E2S Warning Signals is billed as the brightest UL1971-compliant visual emergency signalling device from any manufacturer.

With an effective candela rating of 82.1cd under UL1971 test conditions it is ideal for use as part of a public mode fire alarm installation in hazardous areas.

The NFPA 72 compliant 20ms high-intensity pulse generates light output equivalent in perception to a traditional strobe, but with ultra-low current consumption (150mA) and low inrush. The array of high-output LEDs optimises visibility in all directions.

The D2xB1LD3 contains a supervisory diode and duplicated pluggable terminals that not only simplify installation, but also enable a four-wire connection. Multiple units will automatically synchronise when powered from the same source, removing the need for additional synchronisation modules and reducing power supply requirements.

The unit is globally approved to UL, cUL and ULC for Class I Div 2, Class II Div 2, Class I Zone 2/22 as well as IECEx and ATEX certified for Zone 2 and 22 hazardous area applications.

To create a complete audio-visual warning system the D2xB1LD3 can be paired with a D2xS1 alarm horn sounder with an audible output up to 116dB(A), 64 embedded alarm tones and four remotely selectable stages/channels to create the D2xC2LD3 combination signal. The alarm tone will also synchronise automatically on multi-unit systems where powered from the same source.

All members of the D2x family are housed in marine-grade aluminium enclosures with ingress protection ratings of IP66, NEMA Type 4 and 4X.
