The ATEX Worklite is a rechargeable high output LED floodlight for use in harsh remote applications for extended periods, as it offers unique levels of light output, operational duration and robustness in a self-contained battery powered lamp, and is CE marked to the ATEX Directive for safe use in Zones 1 and 2 potentially explosive gas, vapour, mist and dust atmospheres, where a T4 temperature class permits.
Three ATEX Worklite models are available: WL-85 with a 12 LED lamp head giving over 1000 lumens output, WL-70 with a 6 LED lamp head giving over 500 lumens output and WL-80 with a 12 LED lamp head plus the smaller battery of WL-70 giving a more portable unit with 1000 lumens of light output. All models deliver a piercing 30° beam and a flood of lower level fringe light and for low maintenance the LED light source has a 25,000-hour life.
The duration of WL-85 and WL-70 are up to 12 hours on ‘high power’ and up to 24 hours on ‘low power’ and WL-80 is up to 6 hours on ‘high power’ and up to 12 hours on ‘low power’. In addition to dual light output levels, the control circuit manages switch function, battery level indication, emergency power fail 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 in harsh industrial and offshore applications, plus the battery and control circuit are within a box enclosure giving IP65 protection from ingress of dust and water jets. The anodised aluminium lamp pivotable head is also IP65 sealed and designed as a heatsink for the LED light source, plus has an impact resistant 6mm toughened glass lens. In shot blasting and painting applications, the lens can be protected using a disposable antistatic lens guard (3 supplied).
