Federal Signal ATEX IEC product line
By Anthony Capkun
Federal Signal has unveiled three new lines specifically designed and engineered to meet international safety standards. The ATEX/IEC-rated products include three new status indicators, three new dual-function beacons, plus a trio of newly designed call points. The intrinsically safe status indicator line includes an LED visual signal, a high-output audible device, and an indicator combining LED visual and audible functions in a single unit. The audible signal supports maximum output of 100dBa, low-current draw and multi-voltage operation. Shock- and vibration-resistant visual signals spotlight high-intensity LEDs designed for extended service life in tandem with Fresnel lenses for focused light, while offering both low-power consumption and low in-rush. All indicators are ATEX and IECEx rated for Zone 0, and FM approved for Class 1, Division 1 and Zone 0. Federal’s flameproof industrial beacon line has been expanded to include sounder/strobe and sounder/LED combination units, as well as a dual-strobe signal. The three new Zone 1 call points include the Break Glass, Push Button and Tool Reset models. All three are ATEX and IECEx rated for Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 as well as IP66.
