Medium Intensity L-864/L-865 Dual System for Hazloc Installations Now Available with Dialight Control & Monitoring System

Farmingdale, NJ -- Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the global leader in LED lighting technology, has launched its new Class I Div 2 certified FAA-approved SafeSite® Integrated LED Obstruction Lighting System for medium intensity installations.

Designed for signaling on smokestacks, towers and other obstructions in petrochemical, power generation, pharmaceutical and other hazardous locations, the complete system includes Dialight’s patented CID2 certified SafeSite L-864/L-865 dual red/white flash head, CID2 certified L-810 red side markers, CID1/CID2 integrated power supply/controller and CID2 long-life photocell. The entire system is covered by Dialight’s 5-year full-performance warranty.

The first complete systems are already in place at a global brand’s newly constructed petrochemical facility in Mexico, with Dialight supplying all of the obstruction lighting systems for the entire location.

“Companies around the world have relied on our long-life, energy-efficient strobes and signals for reliable, maintenance-free obstruction lighting in a wide range of facilities,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “Now, for the first time, this complete system combines Dialight’s industry-leading signal technology with our own advanced monitoring and control system for added efficiency, reliable integration, simplified procurement and management ease.”

Dialight’s integrated controller is mounted at the base of the structure for easy access and features a dual-certified CID1 and CID2 Groups B, C and D enclosure with real-time data reporting from the lighting system to the controller. Panel-mounted red and green LEDs indicate the system status at a glance, while the enclosed backlit display enables easy event and alarm monitoring and diagnostics. The controller is dual-voltage certified for 120-240V AC or 125V DC operation. A complete dry-contact alarm recording system indicates power and communication failure, sync alarm, white, red and sidelight alarm, plus photocell and day/night mode transition alarms.

The long-life photocell is Class I Div 2 certified for Groups B, C and D and provides worry-free dusk-to-dawn operation. The photocell is FAA and UL 773A certified, IP 66 rated, and carries a T4A temperature rating for reliable performance at temperatures ranging from -40°F to +131°F.

The entire system is designed for integration with Dialight’s Cloud Server Monitoring System, a smart lighting solution that enables signal monitoring across multiple towers and multiple sites from anywhere through a single web-based management console. The system provides real-time status for each signal and site including energy consumption, light output, temperature monitoring and other operational data. The open architecture of the Dialight controller and cloud monitoring system allows for future feature expansion, additional data collection and integration of other devices.
