KSE KS-7830-IX ATEX 1G / M1 / H2 Cap Lamp (3 light modes)

The KSE IX series – high performance ATEX cap lamps with precision optics and inductive charging.

Introducing the new KSE IX series of rechargeable, explosion-proof cap lamps with inductive charging.

The IX series represents a considerable advancement on regular cap lamp technology; the lamps feature inductive charging, and precision optics (rather than reflectors) for a smoother light pattern. This technology is combined with KSE’s earned reputation for build quality and reliability in a package that weighs just 175g.

The IX is available in two variants; the KS-7830-IX with three levels of illumination, and the KS-7840-IX with four levels of illumination. Both lamps feature distance and flood modes each providing 125 lumens, with the KS-7840 having a fourth mode combining distance and flood with an impressive 230 lumen output. Run time on low power is 40 hours, full power 12 hours, or combined mode (KS-7840-IX) 6 hours.

The lamps charge from 0 to 90% in less than 9 hours, and charging is simply by inserting the lamp into the charger socket, no moving parts, no twisting, and no exposed contacts. A handy LED battery status indicator is provided.

Both lamps feature a full range of ATEX certifications for Zone 0, Hydrogen and mining M1. If you need assistance to choose the correct lamp for your requirement then please do not hesitate to contact us.

The KSE IX series is well proven in mining, waste water management, the petro-chemical industry, confined space working, construction, tunnelling, emergency and rescue services, and a range of specialist industrial applications.

All KSE-LIGHTS cap lamps can be worn with different adapter systems on different types of helmets, as well as directly on the head by using a special headband.
