Rugged industrial lighting with efficiency benefits

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The new Strongex range of industrial luminaires (photo) is designed specifically for installation in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. Available for EX Zone 1 or EX Zone 2 applications, the Strongex 1 and Strongex 2 luminaires are said to reduce energy consumption, extend lifecycle and lower maintenance costs. Luminaire housings are made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and are 100% recyclable. Modules are available with smart sensors to further increase efficiencies. Strongex devices have IP66/IP69K and IK10 ratings and are resistant to both impacts and chemicals, protecting them in harsh installation environments. They also have a special seal that makes them completely gas-tight, protecting units from any atmospheric gases that could damage the electronics. — Zalux, S.A., Zaragoza, Spain
