The Ex GLS leadlamp is ATEX compliant and approved for use in zones 1 and 2 hazardous areas, for IIA gases where a T3 temperature class permits. This gives the lamp the versatility of use in many potentially explosive atmospheres including methane, petroleum and propane.
The lamp for the Ex GLS leadlamp is a standard 230V 60W GLS rough service ES. This gives a good ambient light, ideal for plant inspection and maintenance duties. The Ex GLS leadlamp light source is protected by a toughened glass dome, which is able to withstand changes in temperature, preventing the risk of failure from thermal shock. A steel cage guard with cast iron locking ring minimises the risk of direct impact damage, further protecting the glass. The guard and ring are plated to prevent corrosion. Finally, the resilient rubber construction incorporates two rubber rings on both the top and bottom of the steel guard. These are ideal for absorbing the general impact expected from industrial use.
User benefits in operating the leadlamp include a rubber handle for enhanced grip, a convenient retractable hook incorporated in the steel guard by which the handlamp can be hung, and a weight of just over 2Kg. The Ex GLS leadlamp is sealed to IP54, protecting against the ingress of dust and rendering the enclosure weatherproof. It is supplied fitted with 10 metres of cable, but is supplied without a lamp.
