Power management company Eaton has announced its latest product in industrial and hazardous lighting: Crouse-Hinds series CEAG ExLin linear LEDs, certified for Zone 1 and 2 hazardous area environments. The explosion-protected LED fixture provides reliable, energy efficient lighting that can yield cost savings compared to traditional fluorescent fixtures.

Part of Eaton’s solutions for harsh and hazardous areas, the ExLin fixtures are compliant with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and EU (IECEx and ATEX) standards for equipment used in explosive environments. The fixtures are designed to replace 2x18 W, 2x36 W, and 2x58 W hazardous area fluorescent fixtures. The ExLin is low profile, lightweight, and has an operating temperature range of -40°C to 55°C. In addition, custom optics improve light distribution to provide light where needed, with the potential to reduce the number of fixtures required.
