The Dialight SafeSite High Bay fixture incorporates Cree's XLamp® XP-G LEDs and delivers unprecedented energy efficiency with four different models providing up to 10,000 lumens at just 150W total power consumption. An exceptional power factor greater than .95 further reduces stand-by energy consumption. NEC certified for use in the most extreme conditions, including petroleum refineries, drilling platforms and fuel service and handling areas, the SafeSite LED High Bay fixtures provide crisp, clear, white light for maximum visibility and safety in virtually any harsh environment, including marine locations.
"Our SafeSite High Bay fixture is the most durable, energy-efficient device approved for hazardous locations on the market," said Roy Burton, Dialight's Group Chief Executive. "These classified approved fixtures allow hazardous site operators to realize all the benefits of LED technology, including dramatically reduced energy consumption, less environmental impact and lower maintenance costs, with a bright white light for maximum visual acuity and safety."
Conventional operating voltage makes change out from traditional high- or low-pressure sodium, metal halide or mercury vapor fixtures to SafeSite LED fixtures quick, safe and easy using existing wiring. The SafeSite Hazloc fixtures' lightweight, low-profile design is about half the weight and 75% shorter than conventional fixtures, allowing for increased mounting versatility and ease of installation.
Instant on/off operation enhances safety, while shock and vibration resistant construction ensures durability in the most unforgiving environments. Mercury-free LEDs are recyclable, eliminating the costly handling and disposal fees commonly required for traditional bulbs.
"These highly-efficient fixtures not only help cut operating and maintenance costs, but also align perfectly with our customers' sustainability initiatives, providing a greener, money-saving solution to hazloc lighting," Burton said. "They're even approved by the International Dark-Sky Association for their light pollution reduction characteristics."
