Cooper Crouse-Hinds has redesigned the housing on its EXIT series of explosion-protected Ex-escape sign luminaires. The new housing provides a number of benefits for customers including simplified installation and maintenance. The new flatter designed housing now features single-sided through-wiring with a generously-dimensioned terminal compartment, simplifying installation and maintenance. The mounting fixtures are now integrated in the profile of the luminaire. A hinged cover also enables the escape sign luminiare to be mounted universally in any direction. The explosion-protected escape sign luminaires fulfils the requirements of the European ATEX Directive 94/9/EC and the latest IECEx standards. The lamps are used for marking escape routes and exits in potentially explosive atmospheres and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
