New NIGHTSTICK® Penlights Meet OSHA Standards for Intrinsically Safe Flashlight
Nightstick Introduces the XPP-5410G and XPP-5412G Intrinsically Safe Penlights
Wylie, TX (PRUnderground) April 10th, 2014
A number of industries and jobs are rated hazardous by the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). In these situations, the job has an inherent risk for harm if the hazardous environment isn’t well controlled. Management is challenged therefore to identify intrinsically safe equipment as it is defined by OSHA that promotes the safety and security of everyone on the job site and the site itself. This, of course, includes dependable lighting. Nightstick®, a leading innovator in superior-grade portable lighting solutions, introduces the XPP-5410G and XPP-5412G Intrinsically Safe Penlights.
OSHA defines intrinsically safe in Standard # 1910.307(c)(1) of its regulations as, “Equipment and associated wiring approved as intrinsically safe is permitted in any hazardous (classified) location for which it is approved.” Both the XPP-5410G and XPP-5412G are listed Intrinsically Safe for use in Class I, II, III, Division I, and Groups A, B, C, D, E, F, and G hazardous locations. They are also cETLus, ATEX and IECEx listed Intrinsically Safe for use in both above and below ground hazardous locations where explosive gases and dusts may be present.
These penlights join a long list of Intrinsically Safe products already on the market from Nightstick, bringing the total number of products to 10.
Both the Nightstick XPP-5410G and the XPP-5412G leverage CREE® LED technology to produced sharply focused beams of concentrated light, perfect for illuminating exact objects. They both also come with a single body switch that allows for momentary and constant-on functionality. Additional features of each include:
