A year and a half after the launch on the market of the aluminum LifEx series, Cortem Group enriches this family of lighting fixtures with the LifEx-P series
A year and a half after the launch on the market of the aluminium LifEx series, Cortem Group enriches this family of lighting fixtures with the LifEx-P series characterised by an impact- (IK09) and UV-resistant polycarbonate and GRP body with a transparent part for light transmission.
The product architecture has been carefully designed. The aim is to manage the full product lifecycle optimally as part of a circular economy and maximise the product’s useful life. The result is a compact, lightweight lighting fixture that is easy to install, while also being robust and long lasting.
They have an innovative bracket mechanism, with no fixed interaxis spacing limitations, which makes them easy to install or retrofit. The LifEx-P range comes in different lengths with a wide array of voltage and power specifications. The range has been optimally designed and certified according to the installation zone.
The "PE" versions are designed for use in ATEX zones classified as "Zone 1-2" and "Zone 21-22," i.e. where the installed equipment must provide a high level of protection both in the presence of gas, vapour and mist mixtures (Zone 1) and in the presence of combustible dust and particles (Zone 21). LifEx-PE has Equipment Protection Level Gb, Db. This safety feature is ensured by a combination of ‘Ex db eb mb’ protection modes for gases and ‘Ex tb’ for dust.
The "PN" versions are designed for use in ATEX zones classified as "Zone 2" and "Zone 21-22", i.e. where installed equipment must provide a normal level of protection in the presence of gas, vapour and mist mixtures (Zone 2), and a high level of protection against combustible dust and particles (Zone 21). LifEx-PN has Equipment Protection Level Gc, Db. This safety feature is ensured by ‘Ex ec’ protection modes for gases and ‘Ex tb’ for dust.
Electrical part is removable thanks to the frame inserted on special rails.
Versions with emergency operation can be accessorized with battery boxes to facilitate maintenance and/or battery replacement, or with special batteries for applications with ambient temperatures down to -60° C. A special LED indicates the state of charge of the battery.
The use of high-power LED strips provides lumen output ranging from 1,500 lm to 12,500 lm with high efficiency and guaranteed durability. The versions with both normal and emergency operation are equipped with a dual-channel LED strip, one for standard use and one dedicated to emergency ignition. This allows constant lighting even in the event of a failure of the strip or the LED driver of normal lighting.
