EAGLEVILLE, PA, October 5, 2020 – Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, introduced the intrinsically safe Vulcan® 180 HAZ-LO® ATEX, a multifunction and rechargeable high-performance lantern designed for use in hazardous environments. Featuring a 24-hour run time on low, a 180° articulating head, and two ultra-bright blue taillights for visibility in thick smoke, the new model is ATEX and IECEx-certified for use in Zone 0 locations faced by many first responders.
“The Vulcan 180 HAZ-LO ATEX is the ideal lantern for working in dangerous environments such as those with smoke, industrial hazards or inclement weather,”
said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “With its 180° articulating head, first responders and other users can aim the light beam precisely where it is needed for task lighting purposes. And because it is powered by a lithium ion battery, it is one of the lightest-weight lanterns in its category.”
Featuring a triangular-shaped face cap and rotating head, the Vulcan 180 HAZ-LO ATEX uses three white power LEDs for extreme brightness. Three deep-dish parabolic reflectors produce a tight spot beam with optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation, while two ultra-bright blue LEDs illuminate the lantern’s taillights. It delivers 400 lumens, 25,000 candela, a 316-meter beam distance, and a run time of 10 hours on the high setting. On low, it provides 130 lumens, 8,000 candela, a 128-meter beam distance, and a run time of 24 hours.
The light’s rotating head tilts 180°, and features a locking mechanism to lock it in the upright position. The lantern’s large handle enables smooth handoffs even with gloves, and offers a nonslip grip for easy carrying. Powered by a rechargeable 7.8Ahr lithium ion battery, the Vulcan 180 HAZ-LO ATEX fully recharges in 15 hours. Its quick install charge rack fits the same footprint as other lanterns in the Vulcan® and LiteBox® series.
The light is encased in a durable, super-tough nylon, and is 18.8 centimeters long and 11.0 centimeters high. The Vulcan 180 HAZ-LO ATEX weighs only 1,112 grams with the battery. It is IPX4-rated for water resistant operation and is also impact resistance tested to 2 meters.
Available in safety orange, the Vulcan 180 HAZ-LO ATEX comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. It has an MSRP that ranges from $351.92 to $410.36 depending on the configuration.
