Dialight Debuts Compact, High-Output Class I & Class II, Div 1 LED Area Light for Hazardous Locations

SafeSite® Series LED Area Light Boasts T5 Rating, Provides 5,500 Lumens at 70W

Farmingdale, NJ (June 28th, 2011) – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today unveiled its new SafeSite® Series LED Area Light, the industry’s most compact, high-output Class I and Class II, Div 1 certified LED Area Light. Approved for use in Class I, Div 1 Groups B, C D and Class II, Div 1 Groups E, F and G hazardous locations, the SafeSite® Area Light is the latest addition to Dialight’s industry-leading family of LED illumination products for hazardous locations.

Designed to replace up to 150-watt HID fixtures, the new SafeSite Area Light offers exceptional energy efficiency and dramatically reduces maintenance costs compared to conventional lighting over the life of the fixture. Consuming less than half the electricity of 150-watt HID units, Dialight’s 70-watt SafeSite Series delivers an impressive efficacy of 79 lumens per watt.

Available in both cool white and neutral white models, the SafeSite’s crisp, clear light provides exceptional visibility and improved safety for oil and gas terminals, refineries, pipelines and exploration sites; power generation, waste water treatment and other utilities; surface mining operations and chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. The LED area light ensures safe operation in a wide range of volatile environments with a T5 rating for ambient temperatures of -40°F to +113°F (-40°C to +45°C) and a T4a rating for ambient temperatures of -40°F to +149°F (-40°C to +65°C)

“Dialight’s SafeSite Series LED lighting fixtures are already saving energy and reducing maintenance costs at facilities around the world, proving to be a much more economical and greener alternative to traditional HID lighting with installations covering 10 of the Fortune 100,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “This new addition to our growing line up of Hazloc lighting fixtures truly takes it to the next level with even greater energy efficiency compared to other products on the market, and the fixture itself is five pounds lighter, making for easier installation.”

In addition to consuming fewer watts, the SafeSite unit’s instant-on capability further cuts energy consumption by eliminating the need to keep high-wattage traditional fixtures on 24/7 to avoid the time-consuming warm up. Dialight’s patent-pending reflector-based optics design enhances lighting efficiency by directing the light specifically where it’s needed in a 180° pattern, reducing light spill and pollution.

Backed by Dialight’s industry-leading 5-year peace of mind warranty, the SafeSite Area Light provides years of worry-free operation with zero bulb change outs, even in the toughest conditions, to virtually eliminate maintenance costs. The Dialight design is shock and vibration resistant and each unit comes standard with a rugged polyester/epoxy powder-coated finish for superior, corrosion-resistant durability.

The SafeSite LED Area Light also offers ease of installation, utilizing existing wiring and mounting structures. Flexible mounting options include adjustable wall mounts, stanchion mounts and direct conduit mounts.

In addition to its Class I and Class II, Div 1 certification, the SafeSite Area Light also meets the CSA 22.2. Class I Div 2 and UL1598A marine listed models will be available soon.
