Abtech APC Photocell

Lighting (& Accessories) » Fixed Lighting and Accessories

The APC provides the ability to control the switching of lighting in hazardous areas, without the need for major rewiring of existing circuits. Based on the popular Abtech BPG enclosure range, the photocell combines tried and tested circuitry with superior ingress and UV protection.

The APC photocell has been developed to provide facility managers with a method of controlling the switching of light fittings in hazardous areas - The system works by turning off non-essential hazardous area lighting automatically when a desired lux level is reached.

Abtech's APC photocell is both ATEX and IECEx approved with version for both Zone 1, 21, Zone 2 and 22 hazardous areas available.


  • Reduce carbon emissions and running costs by switching off lighting automatically when a specific light level is reached.
  • Standard switching level is 70 lux.
  • Built in delay of 25 seconds to prevent nuisance switching.
