E2S Warning Signals launch major new D1x and STEx warning signal families at OTC 2016
On Booth 2641 at OTC in Houston, Texas from May 2 to 5 – the largest US oil and gas show, E2S Warning Signals are demonstrating their continuing commitment to the sector, launching three major new families added to its portfolio of more than 250 different explosion proof and intrinsically safe warning devices for use in hazardous locations. The new ‘D1x’ range of alarm horns, PA loudspeakers and integrated alarm horn/Xenon strobe warning units employ the latest electronic technology and acoustic engineering in robust, marine grade, LM6 aluminium enclosures. Designed to create the most effective warning signals available for use in Class I/II Division 1, Zone 1 & Zone 20 environments, the UL/cULs approved alarm horns and combined units are available with traditional directional flare horns or omni-directional radial horns that generate a uniform 360° sound dispersion.
OTC also sees a preview of the new premium ‘STEx’ stainless steel enclosure explosion proof warning signal range, which offers outstanding corrosion resistance in aggressive environments combined with outstanding performance. The ‘STEx’ family featuring 316L enclosures and approved to IECEx and ATEX standards, will be suitable for the most challenging of environments.
Also on the booth are the new ‘GNEx’ GRP Xenon strobe beacons, www.e2s.com/products/range/gnex, which add visual signalling to the explosion proof and corrosion resistant GNEx family. Suitable for all Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 hazardous location applications the ‘GNEx’ beacons have extended temperature range with IECEx and ATEX approvals. For applications with high levels of ambient light the GNExB2 beacon is available in 10, 15 and 21 Joule variants producing up to 902cd – a very high output Xenon strobe. The GNExB1 offers a 5 Joule Xenon strobe in a compact lightweight enclosure. Complementing the family is the GNExJ2 Ex d junction box, which, having multiple cable entries and terminal configurations is suitable for a large variety of applications. All ‘GNEx’ beacons can be supplied as plate mounted assemblies configured with and without an alarm horn sounder or junction box. These new Xenon strobe beacon visual signals broaden the ‘GNEx’ family which includes alarm horn sounders, PA loudspeakers and manual call points for activation of fire alarms, gas detection and emergency shutdown systems.
International Sales Manager Darren Mann and Marcel Minns, Technical Sales Manager from the Houston facility, will be on the booth to demonstrate the new products.
