Low-profile Appleton Contender LED for retrofitting legacy hazloc HID lighting
By Anthony Capkun
August 18, 2020 – Emerson says its Appleton Contender low-profile luminaire is a safe, economical solution for retrofitting a plant’s legacy HID lighting system to LEDs for hazardous locations, especially in low-clearance areas (e.g. walkways, catwalks, stairwells).
Delivering the lighting equivalent of 70W to 175W HID luminaires, the Contender LED directly retrofits to legacy mounting hoods without an adapter. It offers three (3) lumen output options and four (4) interchangeable and field-replaceable globes options, and promises energy and maintenance savings of up to 65% over HID luminaires.
The luminaire is certified for hazardous locations rated Class I, Division 2 and Class I, Zone 2, Class II, Div 1 & 2, Zone 21 & 22, and Class III, as well as NEMA Type 3R, 4 and 4X wet location, and is IP66/IP67 and ABS-certified.
