RECHARGEABLE TORCHES
Zones 1 and 2  

Product Information

The high-tech ATEX approved Wolf Rechargeable Torch range uses the latest technology to give excellent performance, robustness and reliability in the most extreme conditions.

Wolf Rechargeable Torches are CE marked to the ATEX Directive and IECEx Certified, allowing use in Zone 1 or Zone 0 potentially explosive atmospheres, where a T4 temperature class permits.

The compact and lightweight Wolf Rechargeable Torch design has a high-grip ergonomic form with easy single handed switching, even with gloved hands. The high strength torch body has proven impact resistance even at sub zero temperatures. The rubber armoured lens ring and end cap give enhanced grip and shock protection. The lens is resistant to scratches and chemical attack. The enclosure is sealed dust tight and protected from water immersion, with a certified IP67 enclosure. The right-angle body arrangement incorporates a replaceable high strength thermoplastic belt clip for hands free use.

Unique optics deliver a piercing beam with outstanding light output from the high power LED or the halogen bulb versions. Duration is over 3 hours; selecting half power doubles this duration. State of battery charge is indicated with a bar of high intensity red LEDs, which go out as battery charge diminishes. Towards the end of discharge, the beam flashes off repeatedly, warning recharging is required. Use of the latest lithium-ion battery technology improves reliability and eliminates ‘memory’ affect.

The ‘quick’ charger is configured as a torch holder, with ‘snap in/snatch out’ function, for quick release but secure retention. The charger is powered by vehicle voltages, but can run from mains voltages when used with the mains power supply. Very low maintenance and quick component replacement are key benefits of this product range. The LED light source is expected to last the product lifetime; the bulb is long life, a spare is supplied in the torch. All models are supplied with wrist straps and clip rings.

Zones 1 and 2 RECHARGEABLE TORCH WITH CHARGER AND MAINS ADAPTOR

Charger Technical Specification

RC-200 and RC-212 chargers are for use with all torches in the Wolf Rechargeable Torch range. The Lithium Ion battery is charged within the torch via charging studs on the side. The chargers are designed to hold the torch while charging, using a ‘snap in/snatch out’ function, for quick release but secure retention, even in vehicle applications, enabling them to always be ready for use.

The RC-200 charger with RC-452 DC supply cable is for use at low voltages of 12-24VDC for vehicle applications, the RC-212 charger with RC-300 plug-top Mains Adaptor is for use at mains voltages of 100VAC to 230VAC or at 254VAC, 60Hz ‘rig voltage’. The Mains Adaptor is supplied with pin configurations for UK, EU, US and Australia.

All products listed are CE marked compliant with all relevant EC directives (EMC and LVD as applicable). Additionally the RC-200 and RC-212 carry the e11 mark showing compliance with the 95/54/EC ‘Automotive EMC’ directive for use in vehicles operated by the Emergency Services.

All chargers may be used free standing or can be bench or wall mounted.
