A new range of explosian proof xenon strobe beacons for visual alarm signalling in harsh environments is being showcased at Chinese petrochemical industry event.
E2S Warning Signals will launch its new GNEx GRP Xenon strobe beacons at the CIPPE 2016 (China International Petroleum & Petrochemical Technology and Equipment Exhibition) event in Beijing, China taking place from 29th to 31st March.
The new products add visual signalling to the explosion proof and corrosion resistant GNEx family. Suitable for all Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 hazardous location applications, the GNEx beacons have extended temperature range with IECEx and ATEX Ex d approvals.
For high ambient light or long distance signalling, the GNExB2 beacon is available in 10, 15 and 21 Joule variants producing up to 902cd – a very high output Xenon strobe. The smaller sized GNExB1 is available for where a 5 Joule (up to 117cd) unit meets requirements.
Three flash patterns and second stage, set by user, are a standard feature with all GNEx beacons, depending on base model and power (DC or AC) supply. On-site removal and replacement of the lens filter, such as for colour changes, is simple. Polycarbonate, UV stable lenses are available in Amber, Blue, Clear, Green, Magenta, Red and Yellow as separate spare parts. Installation time is minimised by design with the GRP enclosure featuring a threaded flame path, multiple cable entries and a large termination area.
Complementing the GNEx range is the GNExJ2 Ex d junction box, which, having multiple cable entries and terminal configurations means suitability for many other applications. Both 15 and 21 Joule versions can be supplied as a plate mounted assembly configured with up to four Xenon strobe beacons with a junction box or five beacons without a junction box. The new Xenon strobe beacon visual signals broaden the GNEx family which includes alarm horn sounders, PA loudspeakers and manual call points for activation of fire alarms, gas detection and emergency shutdown systems.
“CIPPE is Asia’s largest trade show for the petroleum industry equipment and we’re happy to come back again this year to showcase our products designed specifically for the needs of the industry” said Colin Tan, Regional Sales Manager for E2S.
E2S will also have a preview of the new STEx family of stainless steel enclosure devices plus a selection of other explosion proof and intrinsically safe warning devices from the company’s portfolio of more than 350 different products.
