Streamlight’s ATEX rated right-angle light

The Survivor® X ATEX is an upgraded version of Streamlight’s compact Survivor® right-angle torch, now offering 250 lumens, new features for improved operation, and multiple power options to suit user needs and budgets.

The low-profile, Zone 0-rated light is available as a Rechargeable System or as an Alkaline model.

Also available is the Survivor X® USB, a budget-friendly USB rechargeable option for use in Division 2 conditions.

“The Survivor® personal light, known for its toughness, compact size and reliability, just got even better with the new Survivor® X ATEX, which not only offers enhanced brightness and added features but also multiple power options,” said Streamlight Chief Revenue Officer Michael F. Dineen.

“Fire and rescue personnel, industrial firefighters, utility workers and others now have an even more powerful and versatile tool to use when operating in the trying conditions they often face.”

The newest torch to the series features several improvements in response to user feedback, including:

  • An easy-to-operate battery door that provides a dust-tight seal
  • A battery status indicator in the switch that turns red when the battery is nearing low voltage, flashes continuously when there is 15 minutes of battery life left and turns green when the battery is fully charged
  • An improved charge cradle design that locks the light securely in place, while also featuring a quick release latch to permit one-handed “grab and go” removal, even with gloved hands.
  • In addition to energising the new Survivor® X ATEX, the new charger also charges all existing Survivor models.

The Survivor® X ATEX features the latest in power technology for extreme brightness, and offers microprocessor-controlled high and low intensity and emergency flash modes.

The Rechargeable System model operates on a 2.6Ahr Lithium-Ion battery pack, which can be recharged up to 1,000 times, while the Survivor® X ATEX Alkaline uses three AA alkaline batteries.

On high, all models deliver 250 lumens and 50,000 candela over a beam distance of 447 metres.

The torch’s custom optic produces a narrow beam, ideal for cutting through smoke, fog and mist, while also providing optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation.

Operating run times for all three models range from 3.75 hours on high to 15 hours on low, with 8 hours on the flash setting.

Rechargeable System models are available with AC and DC chargers.

An indicator in the charger turns red when charging and green when the light is fully charged.

A bank charger accessory that charges five units simultaneously is also available.

An eight-unit SL-B26® Li-Ion USB battery bank charger that charges eight USB battery packs simultaneously is available as an accessory for the Survivor® X USB model

The Survivor® X ATEX features a low-profile, compact bezel designed to eliminate snagging when putting on equipment or other gear.

The torch’s reinforced, built-in attachment D-ring and updated spring-loaded clip offer superior retention, ensuring the torch consistently hangs forward, and conveniently latches to belts and harnesses.

Its rubber dome push-button translucent switch is easy to use, even with gloves, and its super-tough nylon housing provides exceptional durability.

All openings are O-ring sealed to resist moisture, including the torch’s unbreakable polycarbonate lens with silicone anti-scratch coating, assembled in a heavy-duty bezel.

The torch has an IP67-rated design for dust-tight use and waterproof operation to 1 metre for 30 minutes; it also is impact resistance-tested to 2 metres.

In addition to the Division 2 Survivor® X USB, Streamlight also offers a Survivor X model that is Class 1, Division 1 rated.
