New ATEX Zone 0 Portable LED Floodlighting Solution
Wolf Safety launches the unique Wolf ATEX Zone 0 Flood Bank to offer hazardous area workers a truly portable and self-contained LED temporary floodlighting solution in areas where the most extreme hazards may be present in flammable concentrations.
The ATEX Zone 0 Flood Bank exploits the excellent performance and reliability of the renowned and proven Wolflite XT Rechargeable Zone 0 Handlamps to deliver collectively, within a stand, a flood of outstanding illumination of up to 2,100 lumens, to a Zone 0 hazardous task area.
The Flood Bank Stand incorporates the Wolflite XT Rechargeable Zone 0 Handlamps (XT-75) which are CE marked to the ATEX Directive and IECEx Certified, for safe use in Zone 0, 1 and 2 potentially explosive gas atmospheres, where a T4 temperature class permits. Available in 2 (XT-602), 4 (XT-604) or 6 (XT-606) handlamp bank configurations, the stands can be placed on level ground or mounted on a tripod to elevate, direct and focus the light to the desired task working area.
The XT-75 Zone 0 Handlamps’ bespoke optics coupled with the highest performance ‘fitted for life’ LED light sources deliver an outstanding light output, of over 350lms each, from the high intensity spot beam, switchable to a wide-angle flood. The battery duration at high output is 6 hours and 12 hours in powersave mode and is monitored with a state of battery charge indicator.
Made of stainless steel, each stand incorporates handlamp holders with ‘snap-in/snatch-out’ function for quick release but secure retention and allows the bank of handlamps to be manually tilted and locked in position.
Miles Jackson, Sales and Marketing Director comments, “We are very pleased to now offer hazardous area workers a unique LED floodlite solution which is designed for Zone 0 maintenance and inspection tasks. Whilst delivering excellent light output, the flood banks are also lightweight and using the integrated handle easily transportable, plus have straightforward function selection."
He adds, “For added flexibility, the handlamps can be removed from the stand in the Zone 0 hazardous area and used for close inspection work or in awkward to reach locations, plus the Flood Bank can act as an emergency backup light source independent of lead powered lighting.”
The stands only are also available and can accommodate all Wolflite XT Handlamp models to create different Zone versions as required.
