Next-Generation LED


Up to 50% brighter than any traditional linear light on the market, the Protecta X has a user-definable light distribution, a maintenance-free lifespan of over 120,000 hours at 25°C, is easier to maintain, and thanks to an optional battery stick, can be installed in half the time.


Chalmit, part of the  Hubbell Harsh & Hazardous group, is a leading supplier of lighting to many industries. The Protecta X is Chalmit’s largest ever investment in product development; with four patents pending it is expected to lead to a whole new generation of LED lighting within the engineering and manufacturing sector.


The Protecta X has specialized optics which deliver the output of a 4 ft linear in a lightweight and slimline luminaire package. The optics control the light, generating a highly targeted, bright, white output over the desired area, and limiting the amount of wasted spill light. The optics are available in a variety of distinct distributions, designed for key site applications – such as mounted from handrails for walkway illumination and localized lighting in low/ medium bay applications. This higher, more focused output means fewer luminaires are required, reducing installation and inspection times and overall project costs within an engineering or manufacturing plant. Furthermore, the Protecta X is 50% more energy efficient than a fluorescent luminaire, reducing energy costs too.


Chalmit has also innovated with the emergency version of the product. The Emergency Protecta X has a revolutionary battery stick which slots into the side of the luminaire, eliminating the need to laboriously open the driver enclosure to access the battery. If battery issues arise, the stick can be simply removed or replaced in minutes – reducing maintenance times by a third. The position of the battery stick also means users can purchase the stick when they’re ready to use the luminaire.


The Protecta X also avoids the overheating issues of traditional linear luminaires, making it more likely to meet the stipulated 120,000-hour lifespan; even at 60°C, it has a lifespan of 90,000 hours. Its LEDs and driver are housed in separate enclosures extending the life of both components. Air gaps between the luminaire and central body prevent the collection of dust and particulates, which can also encourage overheating. Made of highly recyclable marine grade aluminum, rather than plastic, heat is conducted away from the new luminaire’s central body. These design features ensure the Protecta X has an exceptional ambient temperature range of -40° to +60°C in standard models and -25° to +60°C in emergency variants.
