7B - Live Video - DecoFlood Construction
Philips Wide-Lite products not only look good, they also take an innovative mechanical approach to ensure years of durable and reliable performance. The outer housing works as a barrier and watershed to protect the optical assembly from the intrusion of contaminants like bugs, dirt and water. It protects the separate IP compartment from direct exposure to the exterior elements compared to traditional products whose housing is the IP compartment, while allowing water to freely pass between housings. This protects the product from the harshest of outdoor elements, regardless of aiming or orientation.
By sealing to the internal housing, we create a separate dedicated internal IP compartment that is able to carry an IP65 rating. This innovative approach helps to ensure the performance and reliability of the DecoFlood range by not allowing external contaminants such as dirt to enter the optic chamber, in turn effecting photometric performance. A dedicated breather designed specifically for DecoFlood has been integrated to help prevent condensation from forming on the glass due to the changes in temperature and outside moisture.
The door and lens frame assembly is designed to allow water to shed between the gasketed lens and outer housing when aimed in the up position to help eliminate the pooling of water.
