If you’ve ever been dazzled by floodlight glare in a pitch black tank we’ve developed the ideal solution – our new robust, compact and lightweight floodlight – the Wolf WF-250XL Atex Floodlight.
Let’s be honest, a totally enclosed tank in a hazardous area which needs inspecting, cleaning or repairing is never going to win a workplace of the month award. You need good portable lighting just to see where you’re going, let alone carry out the task.
And if you’re working in a team there will be floodlights in use in different locations within the tank and the last thing you want is to be dazzled by the glare of your own light or those of your colleagues.
Our new WF-250XL offers an efficient, cost effective and highly versatile lighting solution for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, even in the harshest environments.
We gave our design team the challenge of producing a lamp that would provide enough light to get the job done, but not be so intense that it dazzles anyone working nearby. They accepted the challenge, and they developed the ideal solution – an easily portable LED task floodlight, designed to deliver just the right amount of light when working in confined spaces where there’s a potentially explosive atmosphere.
The robust LinkEx™ WF-250XL Floodlite, is easy to carry and more economical than comparable units. It produces over 3,000 lumens of white light, which is more than enough to illuminate a 5m square tank or a similar sized space without dazzling.
“Users tell us our more powerful WF-300®XL Floodlite, which provides over 6,000 lumens, is ideal in most hazardous area applications but can be too intense when working in small spaces,” said Michael Morley, our Technical Director.
“This new product not only solves that problem but also offers great lighting performance in confined spaces.”
“It effectively illuminates those smaller work areas when using a limited power supply, providing the optimum level of light for working in confined spaces at lower cost. It’s also lighter and more compact than similar products, is easily carried and consumes less electrical power.”
Fully compliant with the latest ATEX and IECEx standards, including OPIS (optical intrinsic safety), the unit is fitted with a highly reliable LED array designed to provide at least 100,000 hours of working life. The product’s design and construction incorporate cooling fins which ensure effective heat dissipation for the LED array.
The unit is sealed, dust tight and protected from water ingress with a certified IP66/67 enclosure.
Linkable sockets enable numerous floodlights to be connected in a string from a single power source for 24 Volt tank cleaning. Its low power consumption makes the WF-250XL ideal when multiple light configurations are required: up to eight Wolf WF-250XL Atex Floodlight units can be run from one Wolf transformer in different strings or configurations, helping operators to keep overall costs down.
Alternatively, other combinations include four WF-250XL units plus four of Wolf’s LX-400 luminaires (or two of the more powerful WF-300XL floodlights), which can be run simultaneously from one transformer.
“It effectively illuminates those smaller work areas when using a limited power supply, providing the optimum level of light for working in confined spaces at lower cost.”
The Wolf WF-250XL Atex Floodlight incorporates our unique SOVI™ technology which alerts the user if lights are running outside certified and optimal voltage ranges, maximising safety and performance. Both LV and HV units are certified safe down to zero volts, as are the WF-300XL and LX-400/E luminaires – a safety feature which only we here at Wolf can offer.
The light intensity and colour temperature have been designed to ensure maximum comfort for users whilst providing enough light to ensure the task is illuminated. A wide range of accessories includes magnet brackets, tripods, lens guards, cable tidies and protective bags.
Designed with long term maintenance in mind, a full range of certified spares ensures that most parts of the floodlight can easily be replaced in a safe area on site by a competent electrician.
With full application support being available from our technical team, the WF-250XL offers an efficient, cost effective and highly versatile lighting solution for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, even in the world’s harshest environments.
Manufactured from marine grade powder coated aluminium the unit’s enclosure is tough enough to take the knocks, while its lens is made from toughened glass which is scratch, impact and chemical resistant.
Its stainless steel frame ensures that the light can be directed at the work area and provides additional protection for the lamp.
