Emerson Escape Lights Provide Emergency Illumination in Oil Refineries and Petrochemical Plants

Appleton FDBAESLED Lights Approved for Hazardous Locations

ROSEMONT, ILL, SEPTEMBER 15, 2020 -- Emerson's Appleton™ FDBAESLED Series of flameproof LED escape lights that provide safe, reliable illumination indoors or outdoors in areas designated as Zone 1 and Zone 2 (hazardous gas), and Zone 21 and Zone 22 (hazardous dust) during a power failure to the lighting system. Capable of one hour of operation in emergency mode, they are ideal for escape route lighting in or around pulp and paper mills, oil refineries and petrochemical plants.

To ensure maximum dependability, these standalone LED units are entirely self-contained within a flameproof enclosure, and feature an automatic built-in self-test system with memorization of tests. FDBAESLED lighting can be remotely controlled and checked without switching the mains off using an optional remote control unit. It is designed to be installed in a safe area or within a flameproof box, which allows manual switching of up to 300 units for visual inspection.

In addition, a booster repeater unit can be integrated to increase the length of the network allowing up to 1000 emergency lighting units to be on a single control system. This provides for use of a single computer to centralize the management of the facilities emergency lighting system.

Appleton FDBAESLED escape lights are available in switched, unswitched, addressable switched, and addressable unswitched hazardous area versions. In addition to oil and gas production, the lights are recommended for installation in industrial manufacturing, wastewater treatment plants, pulp and paper production, or other areas where hazardous gases and dusts are present.
