The installation methods for explosion-proof fluorescent light fixtures include wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted, and hanging installation. In reality, the installation steps for explosion-proof fluorescent light fixtures are not complicated, but they do require the installation of an explosion-proof mesh that is not present in regular fluorescent lamps.
Firstly, unlock the external lock of the housing and open the lamp cover for wiring. Then, seal the imported device with a sealing ring, and clamp the cable tightly. At the same time, the unused cable connectors on the lighting fixture should be sealed with nuts that have good sealing performance, ensuring the explosion-proof performance and waterproof level.
Before using the explosion-proof fluorescent light fixture, customers need to ensure that the internal and external grounding devices are securely installed and connected to the ground protection. For safety reasons, it is forbidden to power on the lighting fixture during installation, maintenance, and repair. The sealing surfaces should also be inspected regularly, and replaced if aging is detected. Generally, the emergency charging battery for explosion-proof fluorescent light fixture is empty when shipped, so users must fully charge the battery before use.
There are many precautions to be taken when using the explosion-proof fluorescent light fixture, and failure to pay enough attention can drastically reduce their lifespan. Firstly, dust on the surface of the explosion-proof fluorescent light fixture must be regularly cleaned to improve the lighting fixture's efficiency and heat dissipation. The actual cleaning method can be selected based on the product manual.
Usually, the explosion proof led tube is cleaned using sprinkled water or a damp cloth. However, for safety reasons, the power supply must be turned off during cleaning, and a dry cloth must not be used to clean the plastic shell of the lighting fixture to avoid releasing electrostatic discharge.
During daily maintenance, check whether the explosion-proof shell has discoloration, indicating that the plastic is already aging. Also, check if there are any signs of impact or if the safety net for the transparent accessory is loose. If the light source is damaged, turn off the lighting fixture immediately to prevent electrical components such as electronic ballasts from operating abnormally. In addition, in humid environments, it is necessary to deal with the stored water in the lamp cavity properly and replace the sealing components to ensure the safety protection features of the shell of the explosion proof electrical fittings.
Finally, after a period of use, open the cover to inspect whether the explosion-proof joints are intact, whether the sealing components are hardened or sticky, and whether the insulation and electronic components have deformed. Once problems are detected, periodic replacement and maintenance are required. Moreover, the specifications and characteristics of the replaced components should completely match the originals.
