ATEX Worklite

WL-80, WL-85, WL-80MOD

ATEX Certification IECEX Certification CE1180 Certification NATO Certification

Zones: 1, 2, 21 and 22

The ATEX Worklite is a rechargeable, high output LED floodlight for use in harsh, remote applications for extended periods.  It offers unique levels of light output, operational duration and robustness in a self-contained battery powered lamp.  It is CE marked to the ATEX Directive for safe use in Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 potentially explosive gas, vapour, mist and dust atmospheres, where a T4 temperature class permits. 

Two ATEX Worklite models available: the WL-85, which has an 18 LED lamp head giving over 3100 lumens output at source, and the WL-80 which also has an 18 LED lamp head giving 3100 lumens of light output but comes with a smaller, lighter battery to make it easily portable. Both models deliver a piercing 30° beam and a flood of lower level fringe light.  Low maintenance is assured by the LED light source which is designed to give over 100,000 hours life.

The duration of the WL-85 is up to 21 hours on ‘high power’ and up to 40 hours on ‘low power’ and the WL-80 is up to 15 hours on 'high power' and up to 22 hours on 'low power'. In addition to dual light output levels, the control circuit manages switch function, battery level indication, emergency powerfail illumination and low battery cut-off, maintaining and protecting the battery from deep discharge damage.

The ATEX Worklite's stainless steel construction is designed to withstand the rigours and corrosion of harsh industrial and offshore applications.  The battery and control circuit are in a box enclosure giving IP66/67 protection from ingress of dust and water. The anodised aluminium lamp pivotable head is also IP66/67 sealed and designed as a heatsink for the LED light source.  The lens is impact resistant 6mm toughened glass. In shot blasting and painting applications, the lens can be protected using a disposable antistatic lens guard (3 supplied).
