Larson ElectronicsIndustrial lighting specialist Larson Electronics reveals their newly designed Class 1 Division 1 explosion proof string lights with a portable power transformer, which inverts high voltage input to low voltage output for powering the hand lamps.

The EPL-SL-10-TXF explosion proof string light set from Larson Electronics contains a total of ten work lights that are equipped with aluminum hooks and connected in series along 90 feet of 16/3 SOOW explosion proof cord. Each hand lamp is equipped with an optional 26 watt compact fluorescent bulb or a 75 watt or 100 watt incandescent bulb. The machined aluminum housings, cast aluminum guard, tempered glass lamp globe, and abrasion resistant cord make this a very durable unit that will resist damage from chemicals, abrasions, vibrations and impacts. This string lighting solution will provide operators a flexible, easy to manage lighting solution.

A molded T junction is mounted every ten feet, with 3 feet of 16/3 SOOW cord connecting a single drop light to the backbone. With this arrangement, each drop light will not spark if pulled apart or dragged. The hand lamps can be moved around and hooked to different points on a scaffold, but must remain within 10 feet of one another.  A 25 foot tail section of main SOOW cord is terminated in an industrial grade twist lock cord cap to securely connect to the transformer, allowing ample length for connection to power sources. The portable step-down transformer operates on 120 volts or 240 volts AC and steps it down to 24 volt DC to power the low voltage drop lights. This string lighting solution will provide the lighting required in a flexible, easy to manage configuration.

“We have redesigned these hand lamps by using a molded T connector to connect each hand lamp instead of an aluminum junction box,” Rob Bresnahan with “This improvement has made our hand lamps lighter in weight and easier to manage. The molded T connectors have an integrated eyelet making it easier to hang each T connection above the ground.”
