Coming soon: Wolf Safety report on introducing a high performance, multi-functional, market leading ATEX safety torch.
There was a time when safety torches sacrificed performance. Those days have gone and Wolf Safety now prioritises both high power and absolute safety.
The world leader in portable and temporary lighting for safe use in explosive atmospheres, Wolf has now developed the TR-65 compact right angle primary cell torch, offering high power and multi-functional performance with a choice of three power modes.
With a market leading, peak tested light output of 300 lumens emitted, no safety torch will shine more brightly than the TR-65, which will become available in late Spring or early Summer.
Four AA batteries power three output modes from a slide switched high efficiency microchip circuit:
- Slide once, the light comes on at ten per cent power, strong enough to see at close range, and be seen by in low light conditions, offering over 150 hours of light output – that’s more than six days of continuous light
- A second slide of the switch brings up medium power at a peak of 150 lumens emitted, providing a highly useable light for 14 hours
- Slide again to select full power, 300 lumens maximum light output for full visibility in search and rescue activities.
“The world leader in portable and temporary lighting for safe use in explosive atmospheres, Wolf has now developed the TR-65 compact right angle primary cell torch”
This leading-edge torch, fully certified to EN and IECEx standards and compliant with the ATEX Directive for use in Zone 0 and 21 explosive gas and dust environments, offers greater user functionality in a lightweight, compact package.
Its beam pattern is designed to provide a good balance between intensity and size of spot beam, combined with a wide-angle flood of emitted fringe light. This ensures clear illumination of any object being inspected with sufficient surrounding light to enable users to see potential hazards between ground and head height, thus making obstacles visible and avoiding the risk of trips or bangs to the head – a great safety feature.
To avoid users being left in the dark a battery level indicator shows when the battery level has gone down to 15 per cent by flashing continuously and the beam will be interrupted momentarily once every five seconds.
The low battery cut-off feature built into the TR-65 will prevent over-discharge and avert the risk of possible battery leakage.
Wolf Safety products are internationally renowned for their robust and reliable performance in harsh workplaces and weather conditions. Their design, resilient construction and technical materials give unparalleled performance, enhanced by two decades of market leading torch manufacture and proven use in the world’s harshest hazardous areas.
All the best features of the company’s existing renowned safety torch range have been retained in the TR-65 as well as in their new TR-60 right angle torch, a more economical, single power mode alternative. Certified for use in ATEX Zone 1 and 21 explosive gas and dust environments, this model provides an impressive output of 260 lumens from the single power setting, combined with more basic functionality.
Both torch models are IP67 rated, more compact and lighter weight than Wolf’s existing range of right-angle torches, with a well-balanced, ergonomic design that is easy to use and operate with gloved hands.
They incorporate two integral lanyard fixings enabling quick and secure attachment to a tunic, tool belt or harness. A flat rear face increases stability while a highly robust polymer sprung clip keeps the torch firmly positioned in place, allowing for detachment when required and engineered to ‘give’ if the torch gets snagged on passing hazards.
The torch is designed for easy user maintenance with spare parts readily available, enabling users to replace the LED module, lens, clip, end cap, cassette or circuit if required.
