In the not too distant past the LED lighting revolution was driven largely by the universal acceptance of the effects of global warming and the need to save energy.  Significant cost savings were realised with LEDs which prompted further adoption.
 Today, the benefits of LED lighting in standard applications are well known and in the world of hazardous area lighting such benefits are perhaps even more desirable. (Read More)


Leaders in Sensors, Automation and LED Lighting, Turck Banner are well versed in the supply of hazardous area equipment, including intrinsically safe sensors, interface modules, remote I/O systems, passive and active I/O blocks and cordsets.

The company has recently added to its comprehensive portfolio with the introduction of the HLS27, a range of LED strip lights for hazardous areas which epitomises the advantages of LED lighting.

The HLS27 is a 12–30 volts DC powered light, certified for gas and dust Division 2 locations. ATEX/IECEX:(Gas & Vapours: II 3 G Ex ec IIC T4 Gc (Groups IIC Zone 2). (Dust: II 3 D Ex tc IIIC T85 C Dc (Groups IIIC Zone 22).

 It utilises tough aluminium housings encased in a shatterproof, UV-stabilised, polycarbonate shell. Water resistant to IP67 the HLS27 is ideal for harsh indoor and outdoor applications such as cabinets, spray-booths and outdoor shelters.
In addition to the classic cool white models, the HLS27 is also available in single and dual colour models.  Colours can be used for direct status indication, to supplement illumination with indication, or to provide coloured illumination, for example red light at night.

With eight length options and an impressive 750 lumens per 30cms light output, the HLS27 easily replaces bulky, energy-hungry fixtures.  In addition to the integral 50% dimming option, models with a variable dimming input are also available for customisation of light levels. The integral ITC-ER rated cable is available in multiple lengths to allow for simple installation directly to the junction box without expensive conduit.

As part of their proud boast of being a total solutions provider, Turck Banner are able to offer planning support to LED lighting customers in the form of 3D illumination modelling, providing accurate custom made solutions.

Turck Banner also offer a range of Hazardous Area LED Indicator Lights (K30L & K50L) featuring extensive ATEX and CSA approvals. The indicator lights are safe to use in every classified zone or area in Europe and North America.

Furthermore their IECEx approval means quicker authorisation for use in locations outside Europe and North America.

To accommodate diverse hazardous applications, the K30L and K50L are available in intrinsically safe (Ex ia), encapsulated (Ex mb/Ex ta) and non-sparking (Ex nA/Ex tc) models. The indicators also offer enhanced display flexibility, featuring five colours—green, red, yellow, blue or white—with up to three colours in one device. To eliminate false indication from ambient light, the indicator appears grey when turned off.

For reliable operation, the IP67/IP69K indicator lights can operate in temperatures ranging from -40 to +50 degrees Celsius (-40 to +122 degrees Fahrenheit).
