Headlamp Lights Up Hazardous Locations

April 17, 2020
The intrinsically safe headlamp has five different lighting modes and features a compact, lightweight design.

Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its rapidly-growing headlamp offering with a new solution for hazardous location personal lighting. The Milwaukee Intrinsically Safe C I, II, III / D 1 Spot/Flood Headlamp delivers greater visibility and higher light output without compromise on overall size and weight.  

“Intrinsically safe lighting is a requirement for companies that do any work in dimly-lit, flammable gas and dust situations.* Unfortunately, up until now, safety managers have had to opt for intrinsically safe headlamps that compromise on performance due to the limited capabilities of other products in the market,” said Jason Isaacs, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “By leveraging our leadership in job-site lighting technology, we’re able to finally provide these users with a hazardous location headlamp built for their needs. This new Class I, II, and III / Division 1 Groups A-G headlamp not only delivers 310 lumens of TRUEVIEW High Definition Output and a beam distance of 100 m, but it does so in a lightweight compact design.”

Milwaukee’s new headlamp is powered by 3 AAA batteries, delivering up to 40 hours of run-time. With five output modes to manage brightness, beam pattern and run-time, its output can also be directed with the pivoting light head in seven adjustable positions. This headlamp is IP64 rated for dustproof and water-resistant.  

To increase visibility and awareness of the wearer, the headlamp is designed with a hi-visibility color and a combination of on-strap and on-tool identifications. These features are lacking on all other hazardous location headlamps previously available in the market.

The headlamp also includes two straps so wearers can adapt it for their specific needs and comfort: a rubber strap for hard hat use and a nylon strap for bare head use. Additionally, users who wish to attach the light directly to their hard hat can do so with the included Dual Lock adhesive strip.

The Intrinsically Safe C I, II, III / D 1 Spot/Flood Headlamp joins Milwaukee’s fast-growing Personal Lighting offering. All Milwaukee Personal Lighting is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Focused on the user and committed to investing in game-changing technology, Milwaukee will continue to design and develop lighting solutions with the ability to adapt, perform and survive the demands of professional use.
