Federal Signal Introduces ATEX/IEC Product Line

Status indicator, dual-function beacon and call point product lines further strengthen critical communications coverage for the global marketplace

University Park, IL: Federal Signal, a leader in providing critical communications products and systems around the world, has introduced three new product lines specifically designed and engineered to meet international safety standards. The new ATEX/IEC-rated products include three new status indicators, three new dual-function beacons, plus a trio of newly designed call points.

The intrinsically safe status indicator line includes a LED visual signal, a high output audible device, and an indicator combining LED visual and audible functions in a single unit. The audible signal supports maximum output of 100dBa, low-current draw and multi-voltage operation. Shock and vibration resistant visual signals spotlight high-intensity LEDs designed for extended service life in tandem with Fresnel lenses for focused light, while offering both low-power consumption and low in-rush. All indicators are ATEX and IECEx rated for Zone 0, and FM approved for Class 1, Division 1 and Zone 0.

Federal Signal's flameproof industrial beacon line has been expanded to include sounder/strobe and sounder/LED combination units, as well as a dual-strobe signal. These signals feature heavy duty cast aluminum housings with powder coat finish, stainless steel bracket and hardware, glass lenses, and metal dome guards. Audible devices can produce up to 117 dBa at one meter, and is equipped with 32 onboard tones and three remotely selectable stages. All models are available in 24 and 48 VDC and 115 and 230 VAC. These dual-function beacons are ATEX and IECEx rated for Zone 1 and 2 and IP66/67.

The three new Zone 1 call points include the break glass, push button and tool reset models. All three products are ATEX and IECEx rated for Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 as well as IP66. Heavy duty housings are cast from copper-free, marine-grade aluminum, and finished with durable powder coat paint.
