In-Suit Visor Light System
Ansell announces the launch of the TRELLCHEM® Hands-Free Visor Light System. The system offers Hazmat responders in encapsulating Trellchem suits a built-in hands-free LED lighting solution with a panoramic view with no risk of blinding reflections. Typical applications include visibility limited by smoke from the off-gassing of chemicals to the dark, non-lit space of an industrial building where lights are out. The Hands-Free Visor Light System is a “short throw” illumination system based on a LED panel mounted along the top inside of the visor. It is connected to a standard 9V battery giving the user an expected duration of more than one hour. The wide beam of the LED panel creates a panoramic view in poorly illuminated environments. It helps the responder with better orientation as well as safer and more rapid performance since it frees up both hands. The design of the system eliminates any risk of reflection back into the eyes of the user and mounts easily in both new and existing suits without the need of any special tools. The LED panel is powered by standard batteries to eliminate the need of any recharging management. The system fulfils EMC requirements and does not interfere with any radio communication devices.
