Larson ElectronicsIndustrial lighting specialist Larson Electronics has announced the release of a 156 watt low profile explosion proof string light set that provides operators with a powerful and energy efficient alternative to traditional hazardous location portable stringers.

The EPL-SL-3-LP24-LED explosion proof string light set from Larson Electronics contains a total of three 52 watt LED work light producing a combined total of 20,280 lumens of light. Each fixture is equipped with aluminum hooks and connected in series along forty feet of 16/3 SOOW explosion proof cord. These Class 1 Division 1 LED lights are connected together, with twenty feet of 16/3 SOOW cable between each light. A sixty-five foot tail section of main SOOW cord is included to allow ample length for connection to power sources. The cord is terminated with a Class 1 Division 1 explosion proof plug for complete protection. This string light set contains three integrated low profile linear fixtures that have a unique design. Instead of using diffused glass, optics, or reflectors to distribute light, Larson Electronics has positioned the boards within the fixture to provide a wide area light without sacrificing light quality or output. Two offset LED assemblies within the fixture allow this lamp to provide a brilliant 100° horizontal beam spread and a 140° vertical beam spread while achieving a 6,760 lumen output. The LED assembly is protected behind a tempered borosilicate glass tube that is protected by an aluminum wire guard to prevent accidental damage. This explosion proof LED string light set has a T5 temperature rating, is IP67 rated, and carries a paint spray booth, ATEX, and IECEx certifications and is approved for use in United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia markets. This explosion proof string light set is universal voltage capable and can be operated with 100-277 volts AC.

“This new string light set is comprised of three low profile, high output LED lamps that are built for rugged use and abusive conditions,” said Rob Bresnahan with “This new set offers a lighter weight, a slimmer design, and a brighter alternative compared to fluorescent configurations.”
