E2xBL2 Multi-function LED Beacon & Status Light

The hazardous location E2xBL2 LED beacon and status light is UL/cULs approved 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 applications.

The hazardous area E2xBL2 LED status light & beacon utilises an array of high power Cree® LED's, orientated to optimise visibility in any direction. The beacon can be configured as a steady beacon for status indicator use, with a light output of up to 87 candela. Alternatively one of the five flashing modes, with a light output of up to 160 candela, may be used for warning applications. DC voltage versions feature three remotely selectable stages enabling multiple warnings to be signalled from one device. The UV stable colour filter enhances the light output and is field replaceable.
