BEKA Schréder Launches Highly Versatile and Robust LED Bulkhead

The OPTIWAY utilizes the latest LED technology and unique optical distribution that suits most lighting applications. Its small size and robust design will provide the necessary amount of light for any low-power bulkhead application.

The OPTIWAY is suitable for use in various industrial environments, which include underground haulage, outdoor mining areas, oil and gas refineries, food and beverage plants, manufacturing process plants and any application that requires a low power and robust luminaire. The uniquely designed optional OPTILINK plug-in system simplifies the installation process significantly, especially for underground mining applications.



The high quality of light and the large range of input voltages make it possible to use this bulkhead for only 110VAC supply, 230VAC or optionally ranging from 90-305VAC. The design and choice of materials used make the OPTIWAY highly vandal resistant.

The OPTIWAY consists of a polycarbonate or acrylic housing, which is sealed by means of a silicone gasket. The specially designed closing mechanism seals this luminaire permanently to IP 66 and prevents internal access, which would lead to damage and the reduction of the lifetime and performance of the luminaire.

The newest LED technology has been utilized while limiting the maximum wattage and the lumen output in order to optimize the thermal environment of the electronic components. Thereby, the bulkhead is able to last at least 50 000 hours in the most extreme environment.
Various mounting options, including a wall mounting bracket, hook bracket, or mounting by simply using a metal or plastic cable tie, make this luminaire a truly versatile low-power bulkhead.
