MAXIMUM SAFETY AND OPTIMAL VISIBILITY AT THE WORKPLACE
Gases, vapors, dust and mists: Explosive atmospheres can occur in numerous companies - in the chemical, food or pharmaceutical industries, on oil and gas production lines, but also in small businesses such as distilleries, automotive workshops, bakeries, sawmills and many others. Even minimal pulses can trigger critical situations here under certain circumstances. For plants within the EU in which explosive atmospheres due to gas or dust occur, the so-called ATEX operating directive of the European Union applies. In particular, it defines the employer's obligations for protection against explosions. This includes a classification of the existing explosion risks, which must then be used to select suitable work equipment. Anyone working in such an explosive environment must ensure maximum safety when using electronic equipment. This also applies to portable lamps, which could otherwise become a source of danger themselves.
The lamps in the Ledlenser EX and iL series have been specially developed and approved for use in potentially explosive environments. Depending on the application and the explosion risk during operation, the products can demonstrate different strengths, whereby the approval and suitability of the individual product must always be checked before use.
