Appleton introduces Code-Master LED for hazardous industrial locations
By Renée Francoeur
August 12, 2015 – Specifying LED lighting in oil refineries, chemical processing plants and other hazardous locations is a difficult process, one that is complicated by the presence of ignitible vapors and dusts, says Appleton. To combat this, the company has introduced its new line of Code-Master LED explosion-proof luminaires, engineered for Class I, Division 1 hazardous environments.
Appleton Code-Master LED luminaires deliver 110 lumens per watt or nearly twice the efficacy of competing luminaires, Appleton says. They will thread into the existing mounting hoods of the original Appleton Code-Master HID with no need for rewiring or changing mounting locations. Upgrades from competing luminaires are also possible thanks to the Code-Master LED accepting input ranges of 120-277 Vac and 347-480 Vac without a step-down transformer.
The Code-Master LED features a copper-free aluminum housing with a baked epoxy powder coat finish. An optional lens guard, safety chain and fuse are available for added protection. In addition, customers can download free DIALux software and IES files on the Appleton website to help formulate their solution.
