Visual Comfort and Safe Illumination

BL light engines consist of high-efficiency LEDs and aluminum circuit boards. Increasing the ambient temperature range. Internal reflectors are covering the junction area while improving the light output. The textured and impact-resistant external lens offers comfortable and glare-free lighting.

Improved Visibility

The polycarbonate lens is resistant to impacts with an integral hinge part of the fixture.

Engineered for Extreme Environments

Designed for Harsh Environments

The BL is available in a general-purpose or Class 1 Div. 2 for hazardous locations. It is a linear LED luminaire for the conventional vapor-tight category.

Protected Against the Elements

A copper-free aluminum housing and polycarbonate lens make up the standard BL case. While special order versions are available with a glass lens and stainless-steel frame. Sealed to IP66 and pressure equalized with the help of a specialty membrane. Multi-layer powder coats offer long-term survivability of the aluminum.

Simplified Installation & Operation

Installation Options

The BL is a lightweight LED solution compared to conventional hazardous location luminaires.

Implementation Areas

Areas of use include modular buildings and facility lighting. Asset perimeter, catwalks and platforms. Workbenches, mining equipment, and shelter lighting. Color temperature options range between 2700K and 6500K. 0-10V dimmable power supplies provide 120-277 VAC / 347 VAC input options.

Light Fixture Connection & Maintenance
