Whyte-Hall Australia announces the release of an enhanced range of ATEX and IECEx certified LinkEx LED Floodlites from Wolf Safety.

Distributed in Australia by Whyte-Hall Australia, Wolf Safety has now completed the enhancement of its ATEX and IECEx certified LinkEx LED Floodlites with the very latest LED technology. The range is now available in both Low Voltage (18-54V) and High Voltage (100-254V) versions to produce more light using less power in hazardous area lighting applications.

The new High Voltage LinkEx LED Floodlite uses an array of 48 high power LEDs to deliver an impressive flood of brilliant white light and produce 60% more light output than previously, increasing from 3,300 to 5,200 lumens. Thanks to better illumination and visibility, the LED floodlights allow workers to carry out tasks quicker and more safely in hazardous areas. Each floodlight has sufficient light output to illuminate a bigger working area, resulting in the worksite requiring fewer units to carry out tasks, thereby reducing the initial investment for equipment.

Key features and benefits of the new High Voltage LinkEx LED floodlights include latest LED technology offering 65% increase in LED lumens per watt from 57 to 88; efficient power consumption of only 58 watts reducing operating costs; low temperature operation eliminating risk of burns when handling; direct operation from a mains power supply of 110V or 230V; high performance, lightweight and portable for temporary application usage; CE marked to ATEX Directive; and IECEx Certified for safe use in Zone 1 potentially explosive gas and Zone 21 explosive dust atmospheres, where a T4 temperature class permits.

According to Wolf Safety Managing Director Alex Jackson, by continuously developing their temporary lighting solutions range, the company aims to deliver new efficiencies and cost savings for their users. The increased lumens light output is now available throughout their entire LinkEx LED Floodlite range, improving task efficiency and safety for all.

Wolf Safety also aims to offer total flexibility in their temporary lighting solutions with the LinkEx range configurable for compliance with specific hazardous area site requirements in terms of light configurations and outputs, voltage, cable lengths and plug, socket and cable type. The option to fit an ATEX socket to a high voltage LinkEx LED Floodlite allows multiple lamps to be quickly and safely connected and positioned in a chain while energised, resulting in fewer extensions and splitter boxes being required.
