Spanish company Airfal International has consolidated its position as a specialist in ATEX lighting with the launch of its new WATEX luminaire, a watertight IP66 and IK08 light fixture certified for use in Zone 2, 22 – the most common area for potentially explosive environments.
The WATEX luminaire is regulated by the 2014/34/EU standard; it can be installed in Zone 2, 22 areas – which are the least restrictive of the ATEX zones and therefore the most common. Zone 2, 22 conditions are found in automotive workshops or power plants; in areas for loading and unloading industrial material; and in spaces near (but not adjacent to) fuel pumps.
The WATEX luminaire has an opal polycarbonate body and diffuser, with a hermetic seal that provides IP66 protection against water and dust. It also has an IK08 rating against impacts, one of the highest in the world.
This is a state-of-the-art LED module with either one or two lines of LED modules. It can be specified for power ratings ranging from 13 to 80W and an emission of 10,881 lumens, with the possibility of choosing a colour temperature ranging from 3000 to 4000°K.
