Cetus gains IP66 rating

Released: 25-Sep-2013

Recent product tests have shown that Enlighten's Cetus LED high bay & low bay light range can withstand high pressure environments. Good news for food & beverage manufacturing customers with industrial wash down areas. 

IP (or "Ingress Protection") ratings are used to define levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures against intrusion from foreign bodies (tools, dirt etc) and moisture. 

Cetus features

The Cetus IP 66 rating - meaning "dust tight" and protected against powerful jets of water, was achieved due to the follow design features;

  • rugged sealed housing of the electrical components,
  • use of a high strength polycarbonate lens cover that completely seals the LED driver,
  • fully sealed external power source


Enlighten's Sales Executive David Bird comments that the IP66 rating will be well received by existing & prospective clients. 

Particular areas of use will be for wash down areas in food & beverage manufacturing facilities and cold storage warehouses where refrigeration systems have caused formation of icicles on the high bay luminaires.
