Equipped with a 28 LED array, R. STAHL's new 6050 series pendant light fittings are suitable for use in Ex zones 1, 2, 21 and 22. At a light current of 5,700 lm, they reach a luminous intensity of 10,000 cd at a ±60° angle in front of the lamp. With various reflectors, 20,000 cd at a ±30° angle or 30.000 cd at ±15° are also possible. Requiring 75 W (65 W for the LED), the new lights are considerably more energy-efficient than functionally similar products with conventional lamps. Users also greatly benefit from the LED's extremely long service life: the lights need not be replaced for many years even with intensive operation and frequent switching cycles. At a maximum ambient temperature of +55°C, the lights are specified for 35,000h of operation. At -40 to +40 °C, or with an optional control module that dims the light at higher temperatures, 50,000 hours of operation are possible. With the temperature controller, the temperature class of the lights increases from T4 to T6. The pendant light fittings are certified for hazardous areas with atmospheres containing group IIC gases. Immediately after switching on, the lamps provide their full, flicker-free luminous intensity. Emitting cold white, low-glare light, they ensure high color fidelity (CRI > 80). Featuring a very robust design, the units are shock- and vibration-proof. They come with all relevant explosion protection certifications for the global market (IECEx, ATEX, etc.) and are thoroughly shielded against water ingress thanks to protection class IP68. Available accessories include mounting brackets for ceiling or wall installation. Optionally, the lights can be painted according to customer preferences.
