GNExB1X05 Xenon Strobe Beacon

The GNExB1X05 is an IECEx & ATEX approved explosion proof 5 Joule Xenon beacon. The robust IP66 corrosion proof GRP enclosure and extended temperature range ensures the GNExB1X05 is suitable for all Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 hazardous location signalling applications.

The GNExB1X05 beacon produces over 117cd effective - a high output Xenon strobe flash required for safety signalling. The field replaceable colour filter enhances the strobe and is constructed from UV stable PC. The GRP enclosure features a threaded flame path, dual cable entries and a large termination area - all of which significantly reduce installation time.
