EAGLEVILLE, PA, January 8, 2016–Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, introduced a new intrinsically safe torch, the 3N ProPolymer® ATEX. The new model features ATEX and IECEx safety ratings for use in Zone 0 environments faced by many industrial and safety professionals, first responders and other users.
The alkaline battery-powered torch features three ultra-bright white LEDS. Exceptionally durable, with a weatherproof and impact-resistant body, the 3N ProPolymer® ATEX also delivers long run times.
“Technicians, firefighters, law enforcement professionals and others who work in dangerous environments need assurance that their torches will perform under the most hazardous conditions,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “They can depend on the intrinsically safe 3N ProPolymer ATEX to get the job done when operating in Zone 0 environments.”
Three 5mm ultra-bright white LEDs in this lightweight personal torch deliver 70 lumens and 300 candela peak beam intensity in a soft flood beam pattern, over a beam distance of 35 meters. Ideal for detail work or for working at arm’s length, the torch offers 10 hours of run time to 10% of its initial lumen output. It is powered by three, “N” size 1.5 volt alkaline batteries. A push-button tail switch provides for momentary or constant on operation.
The new model is constructed from an impact-resistant engineered polymer resin that features superior resistance to chemicals and solvents used in many industries. The torch also includes a face cap made of impact-resistant engineering polymer and an unbreakable polycarbonate lens with scratch-resistant coating. It features a wide operating temperature range of -20o F to 130o F (-20o C to 40o C to maintain its hazardous locations rating).
The 3N ProPolymer ATEX weighs only 59.54 grams (2.1 ounces), and measures 13.33 centimeters (5.25 inches) in length. It is IPX4 rated for water-resistant operation and is also impact resistance-tested to 2 meters. Available in High Visibility Orange, it comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The MSRP for the 3N ProPolymer ATEX is $35.00.
