EW, EWA, EWE, EWAE series lighting fixtures for discharge lamps are designed for installation in all those areas of a facility defined hazardous for the presence of explosive gas and dust, where is necessary an efficient localized light distribution in accordance to ATEX Directive 94/9/EC. - EW and EWE series are equipped with cooling fins for a better heat dissipation. They have an internal Ex e terminal junction box which allows the connection with an Ex e cable gland (not barrier). - Globe in borosilicate glass with high thermal and mechanical stability. - Suitable for discharge lamps up to 150W (EW, EWE) and up to 400W (EWA, EWAE).
Industrial processes usually use, treat and/or store substances in the physical state of gases, vapors, mists or dusts that, if emitted in the environment, can create hazardous atmospheres. ATEX stands for "ATmosphere EXplosive". The explosion-protected electrical equipment must be manufactured with safety requirements in order to avoid the ignition of the explosive atmosphere. In this section, studies and technical articles are proposed to provide a support on Ex-proof "world" in order to help our customers to choose the right Cortem Group products and solutions. You can then test your knowledge on electrical explosion-protected equipment enjoying our multimedia training course "Test your knowledge".
