. Available in Infra-Red and White-Light, the low energy WARRIOR II units are designed to deliver the highest levels of security and safety for all zone 1 and zone 2 hazardous environments. The illuminators deliver excellent images from any CCTV system at night; up to 150m with angles from 10-120 degrees.
Raytec have recently confirmed a major partnership agreement with Singapore based company, Ventionex International Pte Ltd, who are specialists in the specification and installation of lighting for hazardous environments in the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical and Energy industries. Ventionex have turned to Raytec WARRIOR II LED lighting as the best solution for a number of onshore and offshore projects, including power plants and oil refineries in South East Asia and the Middle East.
Installation in a hazardous environment can be extremely costly, as it carries a high level of risk and requires certified engineers and specialist equipment. Old bulb technology has a very short life and therefore requires continuous replacement and maintenance, incurring huge labour costs. With WARRIOR II, the cutting edge LED technology delivers a long ten-year life and requires zero maintenance, making it ideal for areas which are difficult to access, whilst allowing the user to make significant labour cost savings. Available in a mains powered or low voltage version and featuring an integrated PSU, WARRIOR II also makes installation quicker and easier.
"It is extremely important for us to use a long life, zero maintenance lighting solution like WARRIOR II, as labour and replacement in a difficult to reach hazardous environment would otherwise be very costly," says KW Mah, Executive Director of Ventionex.
WARRIOR II is also extremely energy efficient and its low power consumption allows the user to save on electrical costs, save energy and reduce their CO2 emissions.
Many hazardous environments require site lighting to be ATEX rated, which means that the illuminator will not cause an explosion by igniting the surrounding (external) flammable gases or vapours. Raytec WARRIOR II illuminators achieve full ATEX certification and still deliver high output illumination through a highly efficient and purpose designed front window. This, along with its excellent uniformity of illumination and accurate colour rendition, allows for the sharpest of CCTV images, whilst the White-Light WARRIOR II illuminators are also perfect for general lighting purposes to create a safer more evenly lit environment for people.
WARRIOR II is supplied in a marine-grade aluminium housing, and the tough robust nature of the WARRIOR II LED technology provides an extremely reliable 24/7 lighting solution that won't fail.
