Larson Electronics releases upgraded explosion proof LED light fixture

HAL-48-2L-LED-G2 Hazardous Location LED LightLarson Electronics has announced the release of an explosion proof LED light fixture with higher output second generation LED lamps. The HAL-48-2L-LED-G2 Hazardous Location LED Light provides weatherproof construction, Class 1 Division 2 approval, and improved performance through the addition of second generation LED lamps which boost output to 5,000 lumens.

The HAL-48-2L-LED-G2 hazardous location LED from Larson Electronics is an upgraded version of the Hal-48-2L and offers all the same high performance durability of the original with updated LED tube lamps which increase lumen output. Designed for use in demanding environments and approved for Class 1 Division 2 locations, these lights feature copper free aluminum housings, aluminum reflectors with high gloss finish, shatter and heat resistant clear acrylic lens, and two second generation LED tube lamps. The second generation LED lamps in these units produce over 2700 lumens each, more than the previous LEDs and resulting in a total of over 5,000 lumens from 56 watts of power consumption. These LED tubes produce 98 lumens per watt, have a 5600K color temperature, and carry a standard 50,000 hour operational life rating, nearly twice that of standard T8 fluorescent lamps. The housings on these explosion proof fixtures are designed to resist corrosion and dampness and feature UL 595 Outdoor Marine Type and UL 1598A Marine approval, making them ideal for offshore use on oil platforms as well as marinas and shore side applications. These fixtures have no ballast, which makes them lighter in weight and reduces maintenance requirements. Multiple mounting options are available including a standard surface mount which allows angle adjustment, and sliding brackets which allow operators to retrofit these units to existing mounting hole from previous fluorescent fixtures. Power options include the standard 120-277 volt capability, and 12-24 volt DC configurations for use with low voltages. The HAL-48-2L-LED-G2 is US and Canada UL approved Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C, and D, and carries a T4A temperature rating as well as approval for use in marine environments. These explosion proof LED lights are ideal for operators in hazardous locations who wish to upgrade to LEDs yet must also meet stringent requirements for resistance to corrosion and wetness, and provide improved performance over fluorescent lamps and older LED designs.

The Safety Selfie: It’s time to take a “snap shot” of your safety program and contemplate what others see

We all know perception is reality and that people perceive things differently. As a safety manager, your perception of your safety program almost certainly differs from that of your workers and your managers. We will use our “Safety Selfies” to expose weaknesses, real and perceived, and to talk about how best to make improvements.
