Appleton Debuts Linmaster™ Zone 2 LED Linear Luminaire for International Markets

Energy Efficient LED Luminaire Meets IECEx / ATEX Hazardous Location Requirements

To provide industrial and hazardous environments with a safer, more cost-effective pathway from fluorescent lighting to energy-saving LED technology, Appleton is pleased to announce its new ATX™ Linmaster™ LED Series of non-metallic linear LED luminaires. Appleton ATX Linmaster™ luminaires are suitable for installation in Zone 1, 2 (flammable gas) and Zone 21 and 22 (combustible dust) atmospheres in accordance with ATEX and IECEx international hazardous area classifications. Optimized for new installations and retrofit projects, the new luminaires are ruggedly built for service in oil refineries, food processing plants, waste treatment centers, and other demanding industrial locations where its impressively high efficacy can reduce energy consumption by up to 70 percent.

“Due to high efficacy requirements in Europe and around the world, there is significantly increased demand for replacing legacy fluorescent with LED,” said Amine Haneche, International Lighting Product Marketing Manager, Emerson Automation Systems, Appleton. “With the new ATX Linmaster™ Series, we are providing an easy-to-install, high-efficacy solution for retrofit and greenfield projects, plus we’ve added options to better satisfy evolving needs.”

Appleton thoughtfully designed the ATX Linmaster™ using the same mounting footprint as older Appleton FE & FN Series fluorescent luminaires and FELED & FNLED Series LED luminaires, making retrofitting faster and trouble-free. To help the facility maintain the same feel as the original fluorescent, the new luminaires offer a full range of lumen outputs with light distribution equivalent to the Appleton linear fluorescent and linear LED Series.

ATX Linmaster™ luminaires are exceptionally lightweight, ultracompact and feature a low profile for cramped spaces. Color temperatures of 5000K, 4000K, 3000K and 2200K provide versatility in selecting the ideal setting for a safer, more productive workplace, as does the 0-10V dimming capacity. An optional green LED model is also available for safety showers or other applications.
