The explosion/flameproof STEx family from E2S Warning Signals encompasses audible, visual and combined warning devices and manual call points, all employing 316L stainless steel enclosures. Designed for installation in the harshest of onshore and offshore environments where corrosion is a particular problem, the units are IECEx and ATEX approved for Zones 1 and 21 for use in hazardous areas containing both gas or dust. Extended certification and operational temperature ranges enable the STEx family to be employed in the most arduous of applications. Members of the STEx family are also DNV approved for on-deck marine use.
In Booth 1639 at OTC, held from May 1-4 in Houston, TX, E2S Warning Signals will be demonstrating a selection of its portfolio of more than 250 different explosion proof and intrinsically safe warning devices for use in hazardous locations. E2S alarm horns, PA loudspeakers, LED and Xenon strobes and integrated horn/strobe warning units employ the latest electronic technology and acoustic engineering to ensure high output, low current draw and extended reliability.
The latest in the E2S AlertAlarm Series of high performance electronic sounders is the A131. With a sound output of up to 131dB, the units can be used to give flood warnings, civil defence warnings and in any situation where a warning has to be broadcast across a wide area. The new A131 has an effective range of over 250 metres and can be fitted with a number of control options including radio control, which enables a complete system with multiple activation points and siren locations to be created quickly and cost effectively as cabling will not have to be laid around the site. The three-stage A131 offers 45 tones, so it can give different tones for fire, evacuation or security alert.
