Glasgow, Scotland (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
Hazardous area lighting specialist, Victor Lighting has introduced a CAP 437 and ICAO compliant heli deck perimeter light to their range. The high efficiency Vanguard VL34 meets the new safety standards, applicable from January 2009, providing safer and glare free perimeter lighting for helicopter platforms. Built for challenging environments, the VL34 will withstand prolonged exposure to extreme weather and is fully IEC Ex and ATEX compliant for use in Zone 1 hazardous areas.
Like all Vanguard products, the VL34, combines sound engineering principles with advanced technology. For resilience units have epoxy coated die cast bodies allied to diffusively patterned borosilicate lamp glass and silicone gasket sealing. An optional epoxy coated galvanised steel wire guard, with or without integrated bird spike, may also be fitted. The overall assembly achieves IP66/67 rating for ingress protection.
High efficiency illumination is achieved by the use of 8 x 1W green LEDs to maximise light output and minimise power consumption. Units have a projected working life of over 80,000 hours, so re-lamping should not be required throughout the life of the unit reducing pressures on maintenance teams. The VL34 will operate efficiently between -45 to +55 degrees centigrade and has a significant advantage over conventional light sources that light output is not diminished at low temperatures.
In the event of power failure the emergency version sustains lighting for 90 minutes by the in-built battery backup. Units are suitable for 110 to 254v supply.
