E2S Warning Signals launches GRP IECEx & ATEX Xenon strobe beacons at CIPPE, 29 – 31 March

E2S Warning Signals, the world’s leading independent manufacturer of
audible and visual warning signals, will launch its new GNEx GRP Xenon strobe
beacons, www.e2s.com/products/range/gnex,
on Booth W1002E at CIPPE 2016 in Beijing, China 29 – 31 March.

The new products add visual signalling to the explosion proof and
corrosion resistant GNEx family. Suitable for all Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22
hazardous location applications the GNEx beacons have extended temperature
range with IECEx and ATEX Ex d approvals. For high ambient light or long
distance signalling the GNExB2 beacon is available in 10, 15 and 21 Joule
variants producing up to 902cd – a very high output Xenon strobe. The smaller
sized GNExB1 is available for where a 5 Joule (up to 117cd) unit meets

Three flash patterns and second stage, set by user, are a
standard feature with all GNEx beacons, depending on base model and power (DC
or AC) supply. On-site removal and replacement of the
lens filter, such as for colour changes, is simple. Polycarbonate, UV stable
lenses are available in Amber, Blue, Clear, Green, Magenta, Red and Yellow as
separate spare parts. Installation time is minimised by design with the GRP
enclosure featuring a threaded flame path, multiple cable entries and a large
termination area. 

Complementing the GNEx range is the GNExJ2 Ex d junction box,
which, having multiple cable entries and terminal configurations means
suitability for many other applications. Both 15 and 21 Joule versions can be
supplied as a plate mounted assembly configured with up to four Xenon strobe
beacons with a junction box or five beacons without a junction box. The new Xenon strobe beacon visual signals
broaden the GNEx family which includes alarm horn sounders, PA loudspeakers and
manual call points for activation of fire alarms, gas detection and emergency
shutdown systems.

“CIPPE is Asia’s largest trade show for the petroleum industry
equipment and we’re happy to come back again this year to showcase our products
designed specifically for the needs of the industry” said Colin Tan, Regional
Sales Manager for E2S.

E2S will also have a preview of the new STEx family of stainless steel
enclosure devices plus a selection of other explosion proof and intrinsically
safe warning devices from the company’s portfolio of more than 350 different
