R. STAHL has extended its range of lighting technology for hazardous areas, adding two powerful, lightweight plastic hand lamps. Designed for zone 1 and 2 explosive gas atmospheres, the model 6141/61 measures approximately 14cm and weighs merely 45 g, while the model 6141/62, which can also be used in zone 21 and 22 explosive dust atmospheres, measures approximately 17cm and weighs 190g. Both types can easily be carried along by users. A bright LED, which is switched on by means of a push button at the end of the lamp, provides a 50 Lumen output (for the dust atmosphere model) or a 20 Lumen output (gas atmosphere).
Featuring a very robust design, the hand lamps are waterproof according to IP68. A wide range of accessories is available for both types, including matching leather holsters, a warning light hood and a fibre optic top piece as well as fixed and adjustable helmet brackets for fire fighters and emergency services. A first set of batteries (LR6 or LR03) is included in delivery. To exchange batteries, the lamp must be opened outside of hazardous areas.

PCN Europe’s March issue features an Industry Special covering issues concerning the Environment, we look at the role heat management plays in the world’s largest CO2 test facility, in another one we discover a zero liquid discharge treatment process for waste water. Our Product Focus on Measurement Technology includes among others an application story showing how predication and performance monitoring on a oil & gas platform enables onshore personnel to monitor essential equipment. In our technical article we look at ways to eliminate mechanical issues in differential pressure systems. At this time of the year we are looking forward to the trade show season, especially at Hannover Messe, the leading industrial trade show. This edition also presents you with many other application stories and product news from all areas of the processing industries, enhanced with datasheets and videos.
