The Fenix WF30RE is an intrinsically safe rechargeable torch for use in hazardous locations (excluding underground mines) and it has passed the necessary tests and was certified by IECEx, ATEX, CSA and NEPSI.
Thus this product can be safely used in Zone 1 and Zone 2, where there is explosive gas mixture in classes IIA, IIB and IIC, and the WF30RE is also rated for combustible dust areas; Zone 21 and Zone 22 , such as petroleum, chemical and textile industries, fire controlling, metallurgical areas, electric power stations and areas, paper producing plants, etc.
It uses a Cree XP-G2 LED to provide a maximum output of 280 lumens and also offers two other brightness levels as well as strobe. The light is turned on/off by holding the side button for 0.5 seconds, and once on single presses will cycle through low, mid and high. To access strobe press and hold the button for 1.2 seconds with the light on, and single press to revert back to the last brightness. The intelligent memory function will remember the last used brightness setting next time the light is turned back on.
The body is made from durable high strength and oxidation resistant aluminium, and is IP68 rated which means that this torch is dustproof as well as waterproof and can be submerged underwater up to 2 metres.
Powered by the included Fenix ARB-L21-2600Ex rechargeable lithium-ion battery the WF30RE offers a run-time of 6 hours, 50 minutes on the highest setting. This battery is specifically designed for ATEX use with this torch to safely and reliably withstand extreme conditions, and has passed temperature and explosion-proof tests. The battery also enables the torch to operate in temperatures between -35°c to + 45°c. Do not use any other battery type.
The battery is charged inside the torch, and in order to maintain the intrinsically safe circuit their is a DC charging port in the neck of the torch and the charging cable also has a specialised charging protector block built-in for extra protection. Another safety feature is the secure battery compartment, which can only be accessed using a 8 mm allen wrench to ensure that the battery is securely fitted.
Plug the USB-A end of the cable into the included 3 pin UK mains adaptor and connect to a power source, and the light on the charging protector will flash red/green to show power is connected. The circular jack end then plugs into the port on the neck of the torch underneath the dust cover, and the indictor light will change to red to show charging in progress, and turn green once charging is complete after approximately 5 hours, 30 minutes. Ensure to replace the dust cover after charging to maintain protection, and never charge the torch whilst in a hazardous location.
A built-in battery level indicator displays the battery status for 3 seconds when the button is single pressed with the light off. It will show either a solid green, green flashing, solid red or red flashing light. There is also a low battery voltage warning function that is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level when the voltage drops below the preset level. Once it reaches low output the torch will flash every 10 minutes to remind you to charge your battery.
Please Note: Always fully read the manual before use, paying extra attention to the safety notes and precautions.
