Rosemont, IL -- Appleton Electric's newest contribution is the FNES LED series of self-contained emergency lighting luminaires complete with self-test system and rated for hazardous industrial environments. They provide the bright lighting that employees need for safe escape during an evacuation. The FNES is equipped with six white LEDs that produce 540 lumens for space lighting applications; for escape route lighting, six white LEDs produce 55 lumens. When compared to previous generation fluorescent and incandescent versions of this luminaire, the new FNES delivers an extended lamp life of 60,000+ hours or six times that of a fluorescent and more than 60 times that of a 3-watt incandescent. Lighting fixtures in these environments are subjected to harsh chemicals that may damage their operation. To combat these environments, the FNES is built extremely rugged with a corrosion-resistant fiberglass reinforced polyester body with polycarbonate diffuser, and a choice of either zinc-plated steel, gray painted aluminum or 315 stainless steel fixing brackets. Because of the critical life-safety role that the FNES plays, it is equipped with an built-in automatic self-test system with memorization of tests indicated by LEDs. The lamp will self-check once a week for a duration of 6 seconds, as well as perform a quarterly self-test of one hour.
