Streamlight’s new lantern designed for use in hazardous situations

Streamlight, Inc. have released the intrinsically safe Vulcan 180 HAZ-LO ATEX, a multifunction and rechargeable high-performance lantern designed for use in hazardous environments.

Key features make Vulcan 180 HAZ-LO ATEX a boon for first responders

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

Michael F. Dineen, Streamlight’s Chief Revenue Officer, emphasised the lantern’s versatility: “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.

“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 weighing lanterns in its category.”

Streamlight integrates superior technology for extreme brightness

Including a triangular-shaped face cap and rotating head, the Vulcan 180 HAZ-LO ATEX uses three white powerful 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. The flat base area also allows the light to stand on its own for scene lighting.

The product delivers 450 lumens, 25,000 candela, a 316-metre beam distance, and a run time of 16.5 hours on the high setting. On low, it provides 130 lumens, 8,000 candela, a 179-metre beam distance, and a run time of 32 hours.
