Dialight Launches Emergency Version of its SafeSite® Stainless Steel ATEX/IECEx LED Linear Luminaire


Next generation Zone 1 LED fitting delivers three hours of illumination on battery backup for superior safety and reliability in hazardous areas

Newmarket, UK (July 16th, 2013) – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today launched an emergency version of its SafeSite® Stainless Steel LED Linear Luminaire with integrated battery. The new LED emergency light operates from -20°C to +60°C and will deliver at least three and up to eight hours on battery backup, while most conventional emergency lights operate only within the 0°C to +40°C range. By being able to operate across such a wide temperature range, this first-of-its-kind LED fitting with battery backup and integrated power supply will meet the emergency lighting needs of a wider range of applications than has been possible with traditional fluorescent lighting.

Ideally suited for offshore drilling operations, refineries and other hazardous areas where vibrations and shock shorten the life of traditional lamps and luminaires, the 35W and 70W fitting is designed to replicate the output of conventional 2X18W and 2x36W fluorescents  for more robust, long-life emergency lighting. Both LED fittings deliver 270 lumens in battery backup mode which is maintained over the life of the battery.

The SafeSite Stainless Steel LED Linear leverages Dialight’s industry-leading low-wattage LED design, customised driver circuitry and optimised power supply to deliver years of stand-by life on the integrated, high performance 3.6V NiMH field replaceable battery, while its built-in battery status indicator allows the battery condition to be monitored and tested without the need to touch the luminaire.

The SafeSite Stainless Steel LED Linear is the latest addition to Dialight’s growing portfolio of LED lighting solutions for hazardous and non-hazardous locations and is also available as part of the Dialight DuroSite® series in an industrial version. With numerous mounting options to meet the normal demands of industry and offering loop-in and wire-through options the easy to install LED Linear is ideal for both retrofit and new installation.
