E2S adds light to GRP signals with GNExB2, GNExB1 beacons
By Renée Francoeur
April 29, 2016 – E2S Warning Signals has added visual signals to the “explosion-proof and corrosion-resistant” GNEx family.
Suitable for all Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 hazardous location signalling applications, E2S says the GNEx beacons have an extended temperature range with IECEx and ATEX Ex d approvals.
For high ambient light or long distance signalling the GNExB2 beacon is available in 10-, 15- and 21-joule variants producing up to 902cd, according to E2S. The smaller sized GNExB1 is available for where a 5 -joule (up to 117cd) unit meets requirements. Three flash patterns and second stage, set by users, is a standard feature with all GNEx beacons, depending on base model and power (DC or AC) supply.
Complementing the GNEx range is the GNExJ2 Ex d junction box, which has multiple cable entries and terminal configurations.
