    Portable LED lamps

The 6149/2 series of inspection lamps is equipped with LEDs instead of cold cathode tubes (CCFL). Compared with the predecessor models, the revised design ensures a much lower energy consumption. Moreover, the LED units provide a better luminous intensity. The hand lamps are suited for zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 hazardous areas. They are available as T4 models which can be used even at ambient temperatures between -40 and +60 °C. Additionally, T6 models are available as well.

With a colour temperature of 6000 K, which approximates daylight, the LEDs ensure good visibility of machine parts and other working areas. A diffuser lens prevents the light from blinding users. The model range for nominal voltages of 24-48 V AC/DC and 110-240 V AC/DC is extended by a new type with a 12 V DC input voltage. All units are IP 66/67-protected and have an operating life of up to 50,000 hours. An ergonomically shaped handle prevents lamps that have been put down during operation from accidentally rolling away. A lockable hook allows users to hang up the lamp. Optional accessories include a safety guard that protects the lamps against shocks in especially rugged environments.
