EAGLEVILLE, PA, June 10, 2015 – Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, introduced new international safety-rated models for three of its signature headlamps, the Argo® HAZ-LO®, the Septor® HAZ-LO®, and the Trident® HAZ-LO®. The new headlights are built to world-class standards, and feature ATEX and IECEx ratings for use in Zone 0 locations faced by many safety and industrial professionals.
“Firefighters and other first responders rely on their lighting equipment to perform safely under frequently dangerous conditions,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “These safety-rated models of the Argo, Septor, and Trident headlamps have earned the highest designations – ATEX and IECEx – for working in Zone 0 environments with potentially ignitable materials. Each headlamp offers a unique balance of features, while also offering extreme brightness, long run times, and a virtually unbreakable, waterproof polymer construction.”
The new Argo HAZ-LO headlamp, for example, features a white C4® LED with two output modes: High for maximum output with a long-range beam distance (113 meters) and eight hours of run time; and Low for extended run time (50 hours) and a less intense beam. The Argo is designed for tasks that require bright white light with a far-reaching beam, such as lighting a path at a fire scene or checking utility lines from the ground.
The Septor HAZ-LO headlamp is ideal for detail work or for working at arm’s length. It uses seven 5mm Ultra Bright White LEDs to offer two operating modes: High with a run time of eight hours, and Low with a run time of 50 hours.
The multi-purpose Trident HAZ-LO headlamp offers the broadest range of lighting applications, meeting lighting needs for both close-up and distance work. It features two lighting modes: On High, it uses a white C4LED for bright light and strong beam distance and eight hours of run time; on Low, it uses three 5mm Ultra Bright White LEDs with an extended 24-hour run time.
Each HAZ-LO headlamp also offers a robust ratchet system for the 90-degreetilting head; tough thermoplastic construction with elastomer over mold; and a push-button switch that is easy to use even when wearing gloves, and recessed to protect it from being turned on accidentally.
The Argo HAZ-LO weighs only 5.4 ounces, while the Septor HAZ-LO and Trident HAZ-LO both weigh 5.5 ounces. All three headlamps are IPX4 rated for water resistance and impact-resistance tested to 2 meters, and run on three “AAA” size alkaline batteries. For extended run times or for operating in extreme temperatures, the lights also can operate on AAA lithium batteries. Each includes an adjustable rubber and elastic head strap and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The MSRPs for the Argo HAZ-LO, Septor HAZ-LO, and Trident HAZ-LO are $60.00 each.
