E2S GNExB1X05 Explosion Proof Beacons


E2S GNExB1X05 Explosion Proof Beacons for Hazardous Area Signalling Applications

The GNExB1X05 are IECEx & ATEX approved 5 Joule Xenon Explosion Proof Beacons. The robust IP66 corrosion proof GRP enclosure and extended temperature range ensures the GNExB1X05 is suitable for all Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 hazardous location signalling applications. The GNExB1X05 beacon produces over 117cd effective – a high output Xenon strobe flash required for safety signalling. The field replaceable colour filter enhances the strobe and is constructed from UV stable PC. The GRP enclosure features a threaded flame path, dual cable entries and a large termination area – all of which significantly reduce installation time.
