Ansell Introduces Hands-Free Lighting System For Trellchem® Level A Suits

TRELLEBORG, SWEDEN—Ansell has launched the TRELLCHEM® Hands-Free Visor Light System, U.S. patent pending. 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.

The Trellchem 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 9-V 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 fullfils EMC requirements and does not interfere with any radio communication devices. Further, it does not influence or interfere with any regulatory certification regarding the Trellchem suit. For decontamination and cleaning purposes, once the battery pack is dismounted, the system will remain unaffected inside the suit when being washed.
