LED area light for hazardous locations offers high efficiency

November 29, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Dialight introduced a new ultra-energy efficient 100 lumens per watt SafeSite RTO LED Area Light. The 8W fixture is now up to 90% more efficient than incandescent or CFL Jelly Jar light.

Consuming just 8 Watts, the RTO Area Light is the most energy efficient product of its kind and the only one certified for use in Class I Div 2 environments, as well as Class II Div1 and Class II Div 2 (Groups D, E, F) applications.

With its 12-48V DC input capability, the RTO Area Light is ideal for solar and other low-power needs, including battery-backup operation, unmanned off-shore oil platforms and other hazardous location applications. The RTO Area Light models are also available for 100-277V AC use. The fixture is UL 844/1598, UL50/E and IP66 certified for wet-locations. 

Designed as a complete fixture retrofit for up to 75W conventional incandescent or compact fluorescent jellyjar fixtures, both the area lights are L70 rated for >100,000 hours at 25°C.

Factory sealed inside a ruggedized housing for superior durability and weather resistance, the Downlight is suitable for both interior and exterior use, even in extreme environments with a broad operating temperature range of -40 to +57°C. 

The product is compatible with a wide range of mounting options, including pendant mount with or without junction box and ceiling mount with or without junction box. Flush-mount and junction box wall mounting accessory kits are also available.
