E2S Warning Signals, a manufacturer of audible and visual warning devices, has launched two new major product families plus the new GRP Xenon beacons for hazardous areas.
The new ‘D1x’ family of alarm horns, PA loudspeakers and combined alarm horn/Xenon strobe beacon units has been designed to provide the most effective warning signals available for use in Class I/II Division 1, Zone 1 and Zone 20 environments. With robust marine grade LM6 aluminum enclosures, the UL/cULs approved alarms employ the latest electronic technology and acoustic engineering. The four stage, 64 tone alarm horns and combined units are available with directional flare or 360° sound dispersion radial horns.
The company earlier released the ‘STEx’ family of 316L stainless steel explosion proof devices to IECEx and ATEX approval standards. The ‘STEx’ signals provide high performance audible and visual outputs with an optimal combination of strength and corrosion resistance for use in the harshest of environments.
The new ‘GNEx’ GRP Xenon strobe beacons, www.e2s.com/products/range/gnex, add visual signaling to the explosion proof and corrosion resistant GNEx family of alarm horn sounders, PA loudspeakers and manual call points for activation of fire alarms, gas detection and emergency shutdown systems. Suitable for all Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 hazardous location applications the ‘GNEx’ beacons have extended temperature range with IECEx and ATEX approvals. For applications with high levels of ambient light the GNExB2 beacon is available in 10, 15 and 21 Joule variants producing up to 902cd – a very high output Xenon strobe. The GNExB1, a more compact size version, is a 5 Joule Xenon strobe beacon in a lightweight enclosure. Complementing the family is the GNExJ2 Ex d junction box, which, having multiple cable entries and terminal configurations is suitable for many different applications. All ‘GNEx’ beacons can be supplied as plate mounted assemblies configured with and without an alarm horn sounder or junction box.
