Hazardous area lighting specialist Victor Lighting has launched a new Zone One floodlight that is said to set new performance standards while offering the benefits of outstanding light distribution and ease of installation and maintenance.

The VL64 Equal Plus has been developed for hazardous area installation in both offshore and onshore environments and provides illumination for obstructions, jetties, tank farms or as security and perimeter lighting. Equally, the floodlight can be used in any harsh industrial environment.
“With the largest aperture of any front-entry floodlight on the market, the VL64 Equal Plus ensures excellent photometric output and provides highly effective light distribution. In both narrow and wide beam patterns, the floodlight outperforms other competitive product offerings,” explains Gareth Bruce, marketing manager for the UK-based, Victor Lighting.
High performance is combined with a wide ambient temperature range of minus 20 deg C to 70 deg C (dependant upon lamp type), making the VL64 ideally suited to a comprehensive range of applications. Certified for use in Zone One areas and Atex Category 2 compliant, the VL64 Ex d (flameproof) floodlight reinforces the Victor Lighting hazardous area portfolio. Users have an extensive range of lamp options accommodating high-pressure discharge lamps up to 400W or single-ended tungsten lamps up to 500 W, he says.
Manufactured from corrosion-resistant aluminium alloy (LM6), the floodlight has a pre-drilled stirrup bracket complete with aiming quadrant for easy installation. A separate Ex ‘e’ increased safety terminal chamber, which removes the need for technical glanding, reduces installation costs. Simple maintenance is also assured as re-lamping is achieved via the easy access hinged front cover fitted with captive cover screws. 
“The advanced design of the VL64 Equal Plus has created a high-performance floodlight that is ideal for a full range of applications and that is also highly competitive both in terms of installation and maintenance,” says Bruce.
