Published 24 Sep 2019

Even though every application is different, for the ease of monitoring and specification each hazardous area is classified as a particular level or “zone”. As a result, all hazardous area lighting must be designed with hazardous area zones in mind, as the “zone” governs the level of protection and precaution required.
It is imperative to know which zone you are working in, so that you can specify the most appropriate equipment.
The Raytec SPARTAN range includes dedicated luminaires for both Zone 1 and Zone 2 areas as well as industrial applications. SPARTAN is a full range of Ex LED lighting approved for all ATEX and IEC Ex Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous area environments, including UL /CSA C1D2 installations.
Using Raytec’s product colour identifiers and part code identifiers you can select the appropriate SPARTAN product for your application.
