For general area illumination of food processing and hose-down areas requiring high efficiencies, horizontal illumination, premium glare control, ease of cleanability, compliance to FDA/USDA requirements and/or NSF splash-zone certification. Certain airborne contaminants can diminish integrity of acrylic. Refer to Acrylic Environmental Compatibility tables for suitable uses.
Housing: Fully gasketed, heavy-duty, die-cast copper free (<0.4%) aluminum ballast housing. Finish meets FDA CFR 21 175.300 for resinous and polymeric coatings. Electrostatically applied white polyester powder paint. Electical components heat-sinked and horizontally opposed. External hardware is stainless steel or corrosion-resistant with no exposed threads.
PA25ALEF: Enclosed and gasketed, injection-molded, UV stabilized, virgin acrylic reflector and flat lens.
A30F: anodized aluminum and UV-stabilized virgin acrylic lens. Gasketed reflector and lens inhibit entrance of contaminants.
Six stainless steel positive-latch reflector clips and stainless steel lens ring allow access for maintenance and cleaning. Gasketed refractor and reflector inhibit the entrance of ambient contaminants. Meets UL lamp rupture containment specifications.
Ballast: All ballasts are 100% factory tested. HPS: Constant wattage autotransformer. MH: 175-400W fixtures shipped within the U.S. require super CWA pulse start ballasts which are 88% efficient and EISA-legislation compliant (must specify SCWA option). CSA, NOM or INTL options required for probe start shipments outside the U.S.
Socket: Vertically oriented mogul base protected exclusionary "PINK" socket with copper alloy, nickel-plated screw shell and center contact. For use with O-rated, protected metal halide lamps only.
Ballast housing: Ships standard with cast splice box to ensure structural integrity. Splice box mounts to 3/4" pendant conduit. Fully gasketed access cover allows ease of wiring and inspection. Wet location hook-cord and-plug is available as a factory installed option.
Optical mounting: Four 8-32 corrosion-resistant, tri-lobular, thread-rolling screws are arranged concentrically around the lamp socket. Optic is sealed at the point of attachments with a one-piece gasket of FDA-approved material. A 16-gauge galvanized steel support ring with matching keyhole slots is pre-installed for vibration-resistant mounting.
