Construction

The ATEX emergency lighting fixtures from series OptiLine with a built-in battery consist of a body made of glass fiber reinforced polyester (GRP) and a UV-stabilized polycarbonate diffuser. Both parts are connected with metal latches. Releasing them on one side causes the latches on the other side to act as hinges, eliminating the risk of the diffuser falling. Inside the fixture, there is a metal mounting plate with LED modules, which also has hinges.

To access the electrical connectors, simply unscrew the two screws holding the mounting plate. For convenience, we have used captive screws here, which you can unscrew by hand or with a screwdriver. Under the mounting plate, we have placed the power supply, battery pack, and through-wires with electrical connectors mounted at each end of the fixture.

The ATEX OptiLine emergency fixture can have up to four M20 or M25 cable glands. This, combined with the through-wires, allows for the installation of fixtures without junction boxes, and also reduces the use of power cables, cable trays, and hangers. Meanwhile, the M25 gland allows for the flexible use of cables from different manufacturers, thicker non-combustible cables, and also with increased wire cross-sections to limit voltage drop over length.

Application

The ATEX emergency fixtures from series OptiLine have been designed for both outdoor and indoor use. ATEX and IECEx certifications confirm their safe use in Zone 2, where flammable gases, vapors, or mists of flammable liquids classified under the explosion groups IIA, IIB, or IIC and temperature classes T4, T3, T2, T1 may appear. Additionally, the ATEX OptiLine lamps are intended for use in Zones 21 and 22, where there is a risk of dust explosion from explosion groups IIIA, IIIB, or IIIC, with a layer ignition temperature (thickness 5mm) higher than 145°C.

This robust fixture has been meticulously crafted to excel in demanding and moderately challenging environments. Its high resistance to chemicals, mechanical impacts, and harsh environmental conditions make it an excellent choice for applications in the chemical, petrochemical, energy, timber, and food industries.

However, its versatility goes beyond these sectors, finding applications in manufacturing plants and warehouses that prioritize durability and compliance with the requirements of ATEX, IECEx, and CNBOP certifications.

Price and efficiency of Ex lighting fixtures in explosion hazard Zones

When we talk about the costs of installing lighting in explosion hazard Zones, it is important to emphasize that the price of EX fixtures is just one element of a rather large puzzle. Below we will show how choosing the optimal fixture for a specific situation can affect two other factors that have a significant impact on the final cost of the lighting installation. These factors are the installation, specifically its complexity and time-consuming nature, and the consumption of installation materials, such as power cables, ducts, junction boxes, and suspensions.

Significance of explosion-proof lamps for installation costs

Before introducing our own series of LED OptiLine EX lighting fixtures to the market, for over a decade we designed and installed emergency and primary lighting systems in the industry, including in explosion hazard Zones. During this time, we used fixtures from various manufacturers, which allowed us to gain valuable insights into their advantages and limitations that affect the final cost of lighting installation.

It turned out that the choice of lighting fixture significantly influences the ease and speed of installation, as well as the amount of installation materials like cable trays, power cables, and distribution boxes.

Why this is so important:

  1. Lighting in explosion hazard Zones requires the use of boxes certified in accordance with ATEX or IECEx, which are several times more expensive than regular boxes.
  2. Emergency lighting installations require the use of power cables and distribution boxes made of non-flammable materials, which are inherently more expensive.
  3. Some industries require the use of stainless steel installation materials, further increasing the costs of boxes, trays, and other components.

Choosing the right Ex fixture for lighting

We are not just manufacturers of explosion-proof fixtures; we also specialize in the design and installation of industrial lighting systems. Our experience in this field has allowed us to identify common problems related to the installation of lamps, which increase the overall investment costs.

Drawing from this knowledge, we created an exceptionally flexible lighting fixture designed for both primary and emergency lighting in explosion hazard Zones, while maintaining reasonable production costs.

Here are the main features of the EX OptiLine fixture that contribute to reducing the costs of primary and emergency lighting by simplifying the design process, installation, as well as electrical testing.

Dual functionality: primary and emergency lighting in one

The Ex LED OptiLine lamp series can serve both as fixtures for primary lighting and emergency lighting, eliminating the need for separate installations. What’s more, emergency lighting fixtures can be powered both from a central battery (OptiLine CBX/CBY model) and from an internal battery (OptiLine A1 model).

Wide range of luminous power options

The OptiLine lighting fixtures are available in two sizes: 670 mm and 1276 mm in length. They can be used both as emergency and primary lighting (optional). Importantly, they are offered in six power variants: 20, 25, 30, 38, 48, and 58 W. All this, combined with the option to choose one of the three diffusers (see below), allows for as many as 18 luminous power values, ranging from 2900 to over 10000 lm. This provides great flexibility in terms of selecting the right fixture for a given application.

Three different diffusers for various applications

The Ex OptiLine lamps offer a choice of three diffusers: transparent, frosted, and opal. Each type of diffuser has unique light transmission properties, allowing the lighting to be adapted to specific environments – whether outdoors, indoors, or requiring a diffused light beam to avoid glare.

Adjusting the lighting direction using lenses

The Ex OptiLine lighting fixture allows the use of lenses to change the direction of the emitted light. This innovative solution simplifies the installation, which results in cost savings by eliminating the need for special mounting brackets. One type of mounting, multiple lighting directions.

High-Bay Fixtures

Thanks to the focusing lens, the Ex OptiLine fixtures become suitable for mounting at significant heights. This often eliminates the need for High-Bay fixtures or special mounting elements, leading to reduced installation costs and maintaining a uniform type of lighting fixture throughout the space.

Variable Light Output for Ex Fixtures in Emergency Mode

Each Ex OptiLine lighting fixture can be individually configured for light output in emergency mode. This means you don’t have to limit yourself to the standard 50% of the primary power setting. This flexibility streamlines the design process and positively impacts installation costs. Instead of relying on costly control systems or adjusting the mounting height, you can simply set the light output for each fixture separately.

Number and Type of Cable Glands in Ex Fixture

Many lighting fixtures impose restrictions on the number and size of cable glands that can be installed on their housing. OptiLine fixtures, thanks to their well-designed construction and through-wiring with two electrical connectors at each end of the fixture, can be equipped with up to four cable glands of type M20 or M25 (two on each side), allowing versatile connections between fixtures without the need for distribution boxes. In many cases, this solution also reduces the consumption of power cables and cable trays.

Larger Cable Gland Size

The ability to use an M25 cable gland in the Ex OptiLine lighting fixture allows for the use of larger cable cross-sections. This provides flexibility in choosing cable manufacturers and enables the use of thicker cables with larger conductors to reduce voltage drops over length, as well as non-flammable cables.

Efficient and Safe Installation of Ex Fixtures

The Ex OptiLine lighting fixtures are designed with safety and convenience in mind. The lampshade and internal mounting plate, which holds the LED module, are equipped with a kind of hinges to prevent them from falling. Additionally, the screws releasing the mounting plate are of the non-losing type.

Thanks to the specially profiled head, you can unscrew them with your fingers or a screwdriver. All of this not only streamlines the installation process but also enhances its safety. On one hand, the installer has free hands and doesn’t have to wonder where to put the disassembled parts of the fixture. On the other hand, we eliminate the risk of the lampshade falling or screws getting lost. These seemingly minor incidents can have quite serious consequences.

Under the mounting plate, you’ll find the power supply, battery pack, and pass-through cables with connectors. The ample free space in their immediate vicinity also contributes to the ease of installation.

Summary

In the context of ATEX emergency lighting, choosing the right fixture can significantly impact the efficiency and installation process, which in turn will have a significant influence on the final cost of the lighting installation.

That’s why the Ex OptiLine fixtures are designed to ensure high installation efficiency with minimal consumption of consumables. Combining this with high resistance to external conditions and mechanical damage, as well as high safety in hazardous areas, we obtain one of the most versatile fixtures in its category.

Choose OptiLine for reliable, cost-effective, and safe lighting in hazardous areas.
