We have been approached regarding the suitability of our products for use in high radiation environments. Given our existing installations at nuclear power plants, this may be an attractive market for us to target as word of mouth and keyword searches identify Nemalux as an option for these kind of installations.
A single light cannon module was built up as per the initial assembly instructions and then put through water ingress testing simulating rainfall. The unit continued to operate throughout testing in multiple orientations. On disassembly, the light cavity was found to be dry, but significant water ingress was found in the power supply cavity. Further work is required to identify the root cause of the leakage and develop a solution. The IP test unit was placed in the shower at the Nemalux Sales and Research location. The unit was placed on a pedestal to ensure that the shower water flow was incident on the full unit. In each of several configurations, the unit was placed under the shower flow for approximately 30 minutes. The fixture was then powered up using a GFCI-protected extension cord throughout testing. Visual inspection during each stage of the test confirmed that the light cavity remained dry.
