R. Stahl introduces a new line of light fittings for use in Ex zone 1/21 and 2/22 hazardous areas.

Achieving better energy efficiency than comparable devices, the new EXLUX 6001 luminaires also provide approximately 10% more luminous intensity. 

The new EXLUX 6001 luminaires also feature a more compact, stable, and torsion-resistant design than their EXLUX 6000 predecessors. While more than one million of the long-proven EXLUX 6000 lights have been deployed worldwide over the last 20 years, the new generation now meets increasing user demand for a similarly economical, yet enhanced product with improved technical features.

Depending on their performance class, the 6001 luminaires are 25-33% lighter than their predecessor models and many competing products.

Key features of EXLUX 6001 luminaires include extremely robust design with slim and narrow profiles; operable at extremely low ambient temperatures (as low as -30°C); installation remains fully compatible to the predecessor series to facilitate step-by-step exchange of existing EXLUX pendants; swiftly removable replacement parts ensure quick and easy maintenance; available with customer-specific modifications on request; cost-efficient standard models with power consumption of 18 W, 36 W, or 58 W available at short notice; and 4mm² cage clamp terminals, 5-core through-wiring, and a full-phase safety shutdown.

The new series fully complies with the requirements of all current industry standards. The new silicone-based foamed gasket has been optimised for maximum durability, as stipulated by IEC 60079. This sealing solution, which is resistant to various chemicals as well as UV radiation, the fitting’s hinge, and a newly designed central lock reliably ensure IP67 protection over many years.
