Eaton Ex-Escape Sign Luminaires | EXIT Series

By October 10, 2023April 19th, 2024No Comments

EXIT for Zone 1 and Zone 21 / EXIT 2 for Zone 2 and Zone 22

Designed for Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 hazardous locations, these EXIT and EXIT2 LED exit signs from Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds Division feature long-life LEDs, intrinsically safe circuits, and an IP66 rating. These exit signs are ideal to denote escape routes and exits in IEC explosive atmospheres.

Conformity to Standards

The EXIT series of explosion-protected escape sign luminaires fulfils the requirements of ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU and EN 60598, Section 2.22 for emergency lighting luminaires. The luminaires are suited for marking escape routes and exits in hazardous areas.

The housing of this luminaire is made of high-grade polycarbonate and it goes without saying that the escape signs comply with the latest standards.

Maintenance-Free Operation

The white LED technology used as the light source allows maintenance-free operation without replacement of the illuminant. The lighting values required for the escape sign are maintained throughout the complete service life of the LEDs.

This reduces operating costs and increases the operating safety considerably, in particular in locations that are difficult to access.

Self-Contained Battery Systems and Monitoring Functions

Emergency lighting luminaires with self-contained battery systems provide the required emergency lighting from a decentralized source, independent of central systems. These luminaires are particularly economical when used in extensive plants.

The disadvantage of the emergency lighting luminaires with self-contained battery systems was that they did not provide any information on the state of the luminaire.

However, this monitoring function has been incorporated in the EXIT N/EXIT 2 N escape sign luminaire. Five green LEDs supply constant information on the charge status and available battery capacity and a yellow LED indicates the emergency lighting operation mode.

The extended self-monitoring with automatic function and partial duty cycle test is also new. An automatic function test lasting 5 minutes is carried out on a weekly basis. For this, the luminaire is switched electronically from mains to battery operation. The emergency lighting function is tested and any faults are indicated by the flashing red LED.
