Milwaukee Tool has added three new products to its line of jobsite personal lighting gear: the USB BEACON Hard Hat Light, USB Rechargeable Low-Profile Headlamp, and the non-rechargeable Milwaukee Spot/Flood Headlamp, available in October 2019.
The USB Rechargeable BEACON Hard Hat Light wraps around the front and back of hard hats, providing 360 degrees of personal safety lighting. The front hard had light delivers 600 lumens of light output in spot and flood beam modes, while the rear BEACON personal safety light makes the wearer visible up to 1/4 mile in all directions. Its elastic strap, silicon grip and hard hat clips adjust to all hard hat sizes and types.
The USB Rechargeable Low Profile Headlamp features a 1-inch light head that delivers 600 lumens of light output of flood beam coverage. It may be used bare or with a hard hat, and features both hard hat clips and a sweat-absorbing microfiber head strap. Output modes range from High to Eco, which provides more than 25 hours of run time.
The Milwaukee Spot/Flood Headlamp is powered by three AAA batteries. It provides 450 lumens of light output, with a 100m spot beam and five different operation modes.
“At any time of day, in any work environment, ensuring yourself and others are visible is critical. Milwaukee® has a long tradition of improving safety through product innovation, so we paired our leadership in cordless technology and our advanced lighting features to improve users’ safety through a range of new high-output headlamps,” says Ben Cabot, senior product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The most groundbreaking of these headlamps is a USB Rechargeable BEACON Hard Hat Light – the first headlamp to provide high-output task lighting combined with active personal safety lighting.”
