For applications requiring an effective Xenon strobe beacon with low current consumption, E2S has added the GNExB2X05 and STExB2X05 5 Joule (5W) Xenon strobe beacons to its GNEx corrosion resistant GRP and STEx stainless steel families. Ideal for all fire, gas and general signaling applications in hazardous locations, they are SIL1 compliant as standard and can meet SIL2 requirements using E2S’s unique interface monitoring module. The upgraded new electronics for all GNExB2 and STExB2 Xenon strobe beacons gives the GNExB2X21 21 Joule and STExB2X21 21 Joule increased, and industry leading, light output of 1,115.57 Candela. All versions now feature A4 316 Stainless Steel lens guards as standard.
The two families have also received additional international approvals. In addition to the new GNExB2X05 and STExB2X05 units, the GNExB2X10 10 Joule Xenon, GNExB2X15 15 Joule Xenon, STExB2X10 10 Joule Xenon, STExB2X15 15 Joule Xenon beacons and the GNExB2LD2 and STExB2LD2 multi-function LED beacons are now UL and cUL approved for Class I Zone 1 and Class I Div 2 environments. Selected 24VDC versions are SIL2 compliant.
Overall, the GNEx range is approved to IECEx, ATEX, Ex EAC and INMETRO for all Zone 1 applications and the STEx range is IECEx, ATEX, Ex EAC, INMETRO and DNV approved for Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 applications.
The GNEx and STEx ranges include Xenon and LED beacons, alarm sounders, PA loudspeakers, Ex d junction boxes and SIL2 compliant call points and push buttons, providing robust solutions for life safety system initiations and audible and visual notifications in the harshest of environments.
