24 VDC emergency lighting for central temporary or permanent fixtures in extremely cold environments

The X-Cold Maxwell is an emergency light designed to illuminate environments exposed to very low temperatures, down to -60°C. This durably sealed emergency light able to withstand the most extreme thermal shocks and mechanical impacts is NF AEAS certified and designed to be supplied with the secondary 24 VDC network.

The Maxwell X-Cold luminaire can withstand the conditions faced in extremely cold industrial environments.

Plug & Play emergency light, ideal for food sites

This luminaire is designed to meet food safety regulations and helps to ensure compliance with IFS, BRC and HACCP requirements for your site. This luminaire is sealed (IP68, IP69K), including for thermal shocks, thanks to reinforced silicone gaskets, and fitted with a pluggable connector protected against the ingress of humidity, ensuring a rapid, but reliable installation with no risk of losing parts.

LED source qualified at -60°C, for a 24 VDC central source

The MAXWELL X-Cold is specifically designed as emergency lighting at extremely cold temperatures, integrating a customised electronic LED board to supply the secondary network with 24 VDC. Thanks to components which are specifically designed for use at -60°C, this fixture is not affected by frequent turning on and off or temperature variations.

Insensitive to impacts at low temperatures

At very low temperatures, the mechanical strength of a poorly designed luminaire can be seriously degraded. Thanks to its stainless steel end-caps and fixing straps and homogeneous polycarbonate diffuser with no mating surfaces, the housing can withstand impacts (IK10) and vibrations, even at -60°C.

Supplied with 3 adhesive labels. Affix where preferred

To avoid the need to select between several models depending on the required direction of evacuation, our EVAC version is supplied with a set of 3 standard-compliant adhesive labels. These labels can be located as required, directly at the site, depending on the layout of the premises. Benefit from total freedom!
