New from DTS - LED hazardous area lighting range

ABB is pleased to inform we have now in our DTS portfolio a full tubular Exd lighting range available to reduce your total cost of maintenance and ensure continuous operation in your oil & gas and offshore applications.


The DTS XFFL Range Tubular LED Fitting offers an operating life of more than 100,000 hours, output of 5,000 lumens with 100 percent yield, and components mounted on a sliding gear tray to facilitate installation and maintenance, and may be retrofitted into existing fixtures mounted with T8 lamps. The DTS XFFL LED tubular luminaire includes a cable gland and brackets, and is available in polycarbonate or glass. DTS XFFL Range Tubular LED Fittings are manufactured with low–copper, marine-grade aluminum castings, and are finished with offshore-grade paint.

“The availability of LED technology in DTS’ industry-leading Series XFFL tubular lighting and Series XLF floodlights brings longer service life, greater energy efficiency, and vibration and shock resistance to lighting for hazardous locations,” said Christophe Janin, Global Product Manager for Hazardous location products. “The tubular luminaire and the floodlight are the two most popular items in DTS’ catalog, and by offering them with LED technology, its benefits are available for applications in oil and gas processing, as well as food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical processing.”
