WOLF Safety Lamp, now Europe's No.1 portable safety light supplier, begins 2006 with the release of its new range of rechargeable safety torches through its Australian distributor, Whyte-Hall (Australia) Pty Ltd.
This new product represents the latest in technology, design and approval. Its IECEx certification makes the torch suitable for use in many countries who have adopted the new international scheme, including Australia.
The R-30 4W Tungsten Halogen version is lightweight - weighting at just over 300g it is only one third the size of its heaviest competitor and three quarters the size of the lightest competitor.
In a power/light output comparison with the competition, this Wolf model matches the best and notably surpasses the worst product.
User-friendly application and ease of maintenance are also features of the R-30.
The bulb can be changed in seconds, with a spare being stored in the head.
Eventually, when the Lithium-ion rechargeable battery needs changing, it is separated from the programmable control board in little more than a minute. In less time, a replacement battery can be snapped together with the controller, the two screws refastened and the cassette re-loaded back into the torch body.
Charging is equally efficiently performed in a bulk-head/wall-mountable holder. The torch is 'snapped' into the charger and 'snatched' out for immediate use.
Three red LED indicators on the torch body light up to full charge and down in discharge.
On full power, light duration is a full three hours and six hours on half power. An 85% recharge takes just 90 minutes.
Fire fighters represent the major immediate market for Wolf's new R-30 rechargeable torches.
