Product Update: Spartan Approved to op-is

Earlier in 2018, all products in the SPARTAN range were recertified to comply with an update in the ATEX directives (EN 60079-28:2015) referred to as ‘op-is’. But what exactly does this mean, and more importantly, why does it matter? What is op-is? Op-is focuses on the ignition risk caused by optical radiation from LEDs. Light beams may not normally be perceived as dangerous, but as technology develops, LEDs are becoming increasingly powerful and their beams more intense. In certain environments this could present an ignition risk as particles in the... Read More

Replace your Old Technology with LED – Free Guide

When specifying LED replacements for your traditional flood and bay luminaires, the most important factor to consider and compare is ‘delivered lumens’ i.e. the amount of useable light, discounting losses and wasted light. Traditional Ex luminaire manufacturers often only quote lumens at source, i.e. lumens at the bulb before it’s travelled through any lensing. But traditional Ex light fittings are typically only around 60% efficient in transmitting useable light out of the luminaire, meaning that the delivered lumens can often be up to 40% less than quoted. In addition, consumption... Read More
