Dialight L-864 LED Red Beacon Certified for Class I, Div 2 Hazardous Location Use

Most Compact, Energy Efficient Medium Intensity Red Beacon in the Industry Now Approved for Obstruction Lighting in Explosive Environments

Farmingdale, NJ (July 13th, 2011) – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), an innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, announced today that its fourth-generation LED-based L-864 Red Medium Intensity Beacon has been certified for use in Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations, making it ideal for application in the oil and gas, petro-chemical and other potentially explosive environments.

Featuring the lowest-profile and lightest-weight flash head in the industry—at just under 9 inches high and weighing only 20 pounds—the Class I, Div 2 L-864 Red Beacon offers significantly less wind load and is highly resistant to shock and vibration compared to traditional Xenon and incandescent units for lighting chimney stacks, cooling towers or wind turbines in hazardous locations.

Operating at just 20 watts, the L-864 is more than 90 percent more efficient than incandescent technology and offers extremely low RF interference. The product lasts at least 10 years for reliable, worry-free operation that significantly reduces the risk and expense of tower climbs, maintenance costs and unplanned site visits. Featuring Dialight’s state-of-the-art, patented precision optics technology, the L-864 is a community-friendly obstruction lighting option with minimal light ground scatter. The unit may be set for steady burn or equipped with an optional controller for flash performance, as required.

Designed for outstanding performance in harsh environments, the Class I Div 2 L-864 beacon features a ruggedized metal base and high-impact polycarbonate lens with specialized coating for superior chemical, UV and scratch resistance. Each unit is factory sealed for an IP66 water ingress protection.

Backed by Dialight’s exclusive 5-year full performance warranty—the longest in the industry—the Class I Div 2 L-864 Red Medium Intensity Beacon is designed for quick and easy change out from incandescent units using existing wiring.
