With protection type IP 69K, the Ecolab-certified CLA work light from Patlite Europe is predestined for installation in high-purity and hygienic areas. It is also available in a low cost IP 54 protected version. The LED light strip's housing is made of high-strength polycarbonate. This special translucent material provides for even distribution of the light, which is emitted at an angle of 120°, and produces a natural light that is neither too dim nor too bright. Equipped with mercury-free high-performance LEDs, the light strips give off hardly any heat. They generate about 34% less heat than conventional fluorescent tubes. With a life of >40,000h, the lights are superior tenfold to existing fluorescent tubes and therefore significantly increase machine availability. Their low power dissipation reduces the energy consumption by more than half compared with a 20W fluorescent lamp and the CO2 levels are also cut in half. The use of 24VDC power eliminates the typical humming sound of fluorescent tubes. The LED lights withstand temperatures between -40 and +60°C. The series in the colour “Daylight” are available in the lengths 300 and 600 mm with mounts for many different applications.
