Operating temperature

Electrical equipment ATEX is generally designed for operation in an ambient temperature between – 20°C and +40°C. For some devices with batteries, the operating range may be reduced (eg -5°C to +35°C for rescued luminaire). For special applications in very hot or very cold countries , some products have been specially designed to have a wider range of operation (eg to -50°C or up to +60°C). The list of special qualifications is available on request from our technical department.

NOTE : Do not confuse the maximum surface temperature of a dust certified appliance (eg T 85°C) temperature class or a certified gas appliance (eg T 4) with the qualified equipment room temperature. These are distinct characteristics.
