The ATEX Safety Torches with LED give reliable, simple, cost effective, high output LED performance in a straight or right-angle body style and are CE marked to the ATEX Directive for safe use in Zones 1 and 2 potentially explosive gas and Zones 21 and 22 dust atmospheres. The torches give an exceptional output of up to four times more light than an incandescent torch bulb, generating a piercing white spot beam combined with a wide-angle flood of fringe light, for excellent visibility in conditions of darkness or reduced visibility. With a typical life of over 25,000 hours, the LED is expected to last the product lifetime, minimising product maintenance and eliminating risk of light source failure.
Additionally it gives an increased battery duration of up to 27 hours from a set of two alkaline ‘D’ cells, more than twice the duration from a conventional safety torch using the same cells. With a low battery indicator, emitting a flashing red light to show good battery power and correct torch function, changing to solid red to warn of ‘low battery’ power and after several hours in the ‘low battery’ phase, the light will cut out.
