Dialight's LED Light Certified for Hazardous Location Use

The T5-rated fixture delivers 79 lumens per watt

Dialight, which specializes in LED lighting technology, announced its SafeSite LED Area Light has achieved Class I Div. 2 certification for use in hazardous locations where gas and vapors may be present, including applications in oil and gas, power generation, chemical, pharmaceutical, mining, water and sewage.

With a low T5 temperature rating and available in 180 degree forward-throw or 360 degree optics, the new light offers a wide range of applications with exceptional energy efficiency. Drawing just 70 watts to deliver 5,500 lumens, the luminaire is designed to replace up to 250-watt HID light sources with a lighter weight and more compact illumination source.

The solid-state fixture is highly resistant to shock and vibration with a polycarbonate lens and a rugged epoxy polyester finish for superior durability in corrosive environments, long-lasting aesthetics and performance. A CRI greater than 70 delivers exceptional visibility for improved safety in harsh environments, and the certified light is available in both cool white and neutral white CCT options.

Backed by Dialight’s five-year, full performance warranty, the new light offers up to 10 years of worry-free, maintenance-free performance, even at operating temperatures from -40°F to 149°F.
