Light fixtures (UK English ‘light fittings’) in the everyday context refers to the whole luminaire – the light-emitting element (lamp or LED), the housing, the stand or mount, and the electrical wiring.
However, with lighting solutions used in Ex areas, at Atexor we talk about the fixture (fitting) separate from the luminaire. The Ex luminaire is the light emitting element(s) plus the control unit (electronics) and enclosure around it.
Atexor luminaires are modular by design so that it can be used in a variety of configurations. Where a normal household light fixture is designed for one mounting option – floor, ceiling or wall – an Atexor Ex luminaire might be suitable for all three depending on the bracket and fitting options available.
