GNExB2X15 Xenon Strobe Beacon

The GNExB2X15 is an IECEx & ATEX approved explosion proof 15 Joule Xenon beacon. The robust IP66 corrosion proof GRP enclosure and extended temperature range ensures the GNExB2X15 is suitable for all Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 hazardous location signalling applications.

The GNExB2X15 beacon produces over 666cd effective - a very high output Xenon strobe flash as required for efficient signalling over greater distances and in high ambient light. The optically enhanced field replaceable colour filter enhances the strobe and is constructed from UV stable PC. The GRP enclosure features a threaded flame path, triple cable entries and a large termination area - all of which significantly reduce installation time.
