‘Mission impossible’ achieved
THE combined lightweight and exceptional light output features of the innovative Rechargeable Torches from Wolf Safety represent fulfilment of a 'mission impossible' by Whyte-HallAustralia ’s research and development team. For many years the company has had to advise its customers that they could not have an Intrinsically Safe Zone 0, 1 & 2 Torch that is lightweight and high powered together.
With new technology in the form of ultra-lightweight, high capacity Lithium-ion rechargeable cells, and LEDs with efficiency levels, exceeding that of the best tungsten halogen lamps, Wolf's R30, R50 and R55 rechargeable torches offer the market the product it has been demanding for so long.
Enclosed in a similar high-grip ergonomic form as Wolf's popular ATEX / IECEx Safety Torch, launched in 2002, the lightweight R30 model weighs just over 300 grams and the more powerful R50 & R55 3 Watt LED version, under 400 grams.
At five metres the R30 provides peak luminous intensity of 340 lux, the R50 and R55 model 360 lux. On full power, light duration is a full three hours [six hours on half power]. An 85% recharge takes only 90 minutes in the charger configured as a torch holder.
The R50 LED model is now coming through production, with the first substantial order being supplied to an important UK Fire Brigade who selected the Wolf product from a shortlist of five competitive products, following extensive tests and assessments.
Already, orders for Wolf Safety's R30 Halogen bulb model which has only been on the market for two months have been received from UK customers and others in six European countries, Australia and the Middle East.
