E2S Warning Signals gains additional global approvals for the E2x series of signals
The E2x series of high performance non-sparking alarm horn sounders, Xenon strobe beacons and combined devices from E2S, the world’s leading independent manufacturer of warning signals, have gained approval for Zone 2, 22 applications to the latest IECEx and ATEX standards for gas and dust applications, complementing its existing Class I & II Division 2 UL and cULs approvals. The main enclosure is manufactured from lightweight, corrosion proof PPS, and the re-entrant horns from high impact, fire retardant ABS. Selected models are available with the innovative 360° radial horn option. The robust construction and electronics with certification from the world’s leading approval bodies ensure that the E2x signals can be installed in the harshest of operating environments with complete confidence.
The series consists of powerful 45 tone, three channel/stage electronic alarm horn sounders with an output of up to 121dB(A) @ 1 metre (112dB(A) @ 10ft/3m) - multi-horn installations feature automatic synchronisation of the alarm tones on all devices on the same circuit. E2x visual signals include Xenon strobe 5 and 10 Joule beacons, available with a choice of six lens colours, provide up to 1,000,000 peak candela. Combination signals offer a SPL of 116dB(A) @ 1 metre (107dB(A) @ 10ft/3m) with a 5 Joule Xenon strobe, providing an efficient and cost-effective audible and visual signal in a one device. For PA applications the E2x loudspeakers are available as 15 or 25W in either line transformer or low impedance versions.
Operating voltages include 12, 24 or 48Vdc and 115 or 230Vac. Dual cable entries, either M20x1.5 or ½ inch NPT (or a combination of both sizes) facilitate easy installation and in-out wiring configurations. The mounting bracket permits the product to be angled in the optimum orientation and along with the beacon lens guard, is available in standard 304 (A2) or enhanced corrosion-resistant 316 (A4) stainless steel.
