Hazardous area indicator lights

July 2014 IS & Ex

Banner Engineering has introduced the EZ-Light K30L and K50L hazardous area indicator lights. Featuring extensive ATEX and CSA approvals, the lights are safe to use in every classified zone or area in North America and Europe. The IECEx approval also means quicker authorisation for use in locations outside these regions.

To accommodate diverse hazardous applications, the K30L and K50L are available in intrinsically safe (Ex ia), encapsulated (Ex mb/Ex ta) and non-sparking (Ex nA/Ex tc) models. The indicators also offer enhanced display flexibility, featuring five colours – green, red, yellow, blue or white – with up to three colours in one device. To eliminate false indication from ambient light, the indicator appears grey when turned off.

“Lighted operator guidance in hazardous areas is no longer a challenge with our K30L and K50L indicator lights,” says Chuck Dolezalek, chief lighting engineer, Banner Engineering. “The indicators’ capability to perform in virtually any hazardous environment worldwide, combined with Banner’s long lasting LED technology, allows our customers to employ a reliable industrial lighting solution no matter the application demands.”

The K50L features Banner’s industry recognised housing model, while the K30L provides a compact, 30 mm diameter housing option for single-point applications. For reliable operation, the IP67/IP69K indicator lights can operate in temperatures ranging from -40 to 50°C.
