Axiom – IP65 LED Bulkhead/Exit Sign

The Axiom LED bulkhead exit sign utilises an IP65 rated polycarbonate base and fresnel lens housing 16 high output white LEDs and constant current maintained drive circuit.

The luminaire provides 150 lumens and the lens generates a wide intensity distribution ideal for providing good illuminance on the escape route. The polycarbonate lens can be fitted with 100mm high, self-adhesive safety signs.

A deep (150mm) opal diffuser is also available to provide double-sided signage if required.

Axiom is available with DALI and self-test.

The Axiom LED bulkhead luminaires are available for normal mains lighting or with integral emergency lighting control gear (maintained or non-maintained operation is achieved by connecting or excluding a switched live supply).

The 16 white LEDs provide 150 Lumens and NM3 and M3 versions also offer 3 hour emergency lighting duration from integral Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) batteries. As with all ELP maintained luminaires the AX/M3 maintained units can be used for standard switched mains lighting but will automatically provide emergency lighting in the event of a complete loss of normal mains supply.

The benefits of the modern white low power LEDs include long life (typically 50,000hours+), excellent energy efficiency (>100lm/W), low operating temperatures therefore improving the life of the internal batteries and good operation at low ambient temperatures.

The luminaires have been tested and BSI Kitemark Certified to EN60598.2.22 and they are also Certified by United Arab Emirates Ministry of Interior Civil Defense GHQ.

DALI / Self-Test Options:
The Axiom LED luminaires can be specified with integral DALI/Self-Test gear providing automatic Self-Test in accordance with BSEN62034 or fully interoperable DALI operation when connected to a DALI control system.
