Class 1 Division 1 Remote Head

The Explosionproof Remote Head is a Class I and II Division 1 and 2 remote lamp head for hazardous locations. It's popular for processing plants, manufacturing facilities, oil refineries and other types of industrial locations that require a fixture rated for hazardous locations. Remote heads are popular because they are weatherproof regardless of temperature and can be operated by a centrally located battery pack, minimizing maintenance requirements. Connecting multiple remote heads to a battery pack allows you to run multiple lamps from one battery, producing significant savings in regards to product purchase price.

When pairing the Explosionproof Remote Head with a battery pack, make sure to choose the same voltage battery pack as you do for the remote head. We offer this emergency light in 6, 12, or 24-volt versions. For help configuring this remote head with a heavy-duty battery pack and for voltage drop calculations, please call us at 800-480-0707. This explosionproof fixture comes standard with ceiling mount configuration but wall mount is available as well.
